"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" chicks are best known for getting ratchet on cam -- and now cast member Karlie Redd can fuel those fights with her own line of rum.
We've learned Redd signed a deal with Local Choice, the booze bottlers behind Tiny's Tequila (as in T.I.'s wife). Spokesperson KD McNair says they first approached Redd with the plan to create a custom liquor -- but going the rum route was all her idea.
Our 'Love & Hip Hop' sources say Redd's getting a 25% ownership stake in her brand, and will be very hands-on. We're told she'll weigh in on everything from bottle designs to testing new flavors -- a dirty job that can get sloppy... if done right.
No word on a product name yet. One suggestion: Redd Rum -- it's murdder.
