'Love & Hip Hop: L.A.'

Soulja Boy Will Save Our TV Show

EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy Love and Hip Hop LA
Soulja Boy's getting a heavy dose of reality ... TMZ has learned the "Crank That" rapper's just been added to the cast of "Love & Hip Hop: L.A" -- in a last-ditch effort to pump some life into the show.

Sources close to production tell us ... the show's been struggling with weak story lines and uninteresting characters ... and producers felt they needed to add a big name rapper to liven things up.

Right now ... Ray J is the biggest star on "L&HHLA" ... and producers think he and Soulja Boy will be a huge hit together. Sources close to Ray J say he's pumped about his new co-star.

If it's drama they want ... the sizzurp-slurpin' Soulja should bring plenty of it.

"... producers felt they needed to add a big name rapper..." Sooo, who's the big name rapper they ended up getting? All I see is some Barney Fife-looking runt with crap all over his face who I've never heard of.

I can't look at Soulja Boy week after week. I guess I'll be skipping the LA show since they already admit it sucks.

Bwahahaha! If the biggest dudes you can find are thus one-hit heathen and D-list Ray J, the show is doomed all right. Look for some more pathetic fakery from executive producer and ghetto ringmaster, Mona Scott-Young. An amoral woman, who puts hos, crackheads, and deadbeat dads on display for the whole world to laugh at. Everybody's already laughing at Ray J, so she won't have to work to hard with him.
