After enduring a rocky year in her personal and professional life, Joseline Hernandez is making time for herself and focusing on self-reflection. However, the challenges are far from over as she is faced with having to support Stevie J while he works to rebuild his music career and leave life in the fast lane behind to avoid jail time. After her tumultuous breakup with Nikko, Mimi Faust is ready to redeem her career and her personal life. Her company MF Management recently gained two new rap artists Jessica 'Dimepiece' and Tiffany Foxx. As Mimi tries to represent both women, she will get caught in a fierce rivalry between these two tough and opinionated artists determined to stay at the top. Since his separation with Mimi, Nikko has reunited with his secret wife Margeaux. However, she is struggling to forgive her estranged husband for his relationship with Mimi Faust. Nikko, on the other hand, is finding it hard to stay away from Mimi. Karlie Redd is a triple threat -- actress/ business woman/ and recording artist -- and is feeling on top of the world right now. She is all about her business, proudly 'married to her checks' and over her relationship with Yung Joc. Rasheeda & Kirk Frost's relationship seems to be back on the right track after an emotional year but when a sexy new female artist named Ashley Nicole comes on the scene, will Kirk resort to his old 'I do me' ways?

A very pregnant Kalenna is ready to pop out her new album and her new baby in the next few months! However, she is plagued with anxiety as she and Tony struggle with their finances. When Tony decides to invest their savings into a night club, putting her music career on the backburner, will Kalenna be forced to choose between her marriage and her career?

Season 5 LOVE & HIP HOP: ATLANTA premiered on Monday, April 4, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT, immediately following an eight-hour marathon (Noon-8pm) of encore episodes. K.Michelle, fresh off announcing her third studio album, "More Issues Than Vogue," returns to Atlanta ready to handle some unfinished business and settle the score. With her BFF and Puerto Rican Princess Joseline by her side, there will be no shortage of laughter and drama when these two strong-willed divas face off against new and familiar adversaries. D. Smith is a groundbreaking music producer who makes her debut as the first ever transgender female in the "Love & Hip Hop" franchise. This Miami-born, Brooklyn-bred Grammy Award-winning writer turned artist has worked with some of the hottest in the game, including Lil Wayne. Smith's defining moment came after being tapped by Lil Wayne to be a part of his most successful project to date "The Carter III," which sold one million copies in its debut week, one of only three rap albums in history to ever achieve this feat. With her spitfire sidekick and aspiring singer Betty Idol by her side, this dynamic duo will take the Atlanta scene by storm. New to the scene is Karen "KK" King. KK is not your average mother - she was previously the vivacious, outspoken "momager" to her sons Scrapp DeLeon and Sas. Through her musical connections, KK brokered major deals for her sons with Akon's Konvict music and T-Pain. Additionally, she is a longtime friend of Stevie J, who she not only considers a lifelong friend, but also her brother and uncle to her sons. Sas & Scrapp set the rap game ablaze as teenagers in a group called Da Razkalz Cru. These days, Scrapp manages Sas to reestablish him as a solo artist. But for Scrapp, relationship drama with girlfriend Tommie, who isn't shy when it comes to speaking her mind; and Tiara, the mother of his son, is distracting him from the music. Tiara is the perfect combination of brains and beauty. She is a reserved corporate dynamo by day and a sexy club vixen by night. Don't let her prim and proper exterior fool you; Tiara is not one to be reckoned with. Tommie is a charismatic model who is known for her unpredictable antics, rapid-fire wit and her relationship with Scrapp. One thing is for certain, beef between these two may be headed for disaster as they battle it out for Scrapp's heart. Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J make their way back to Atlanta fresh from the rolling hills of Hollywood. After spending time in LA, Joseline is more determined than ever to become a triple threat in the entertainment industry. Now that the big fish is back and stirring up the small pond, will Joseline be able to mend her fences with her old cohorts or will her thirst for vengeance lead to her downfall? Meanwhile, will Stevie's dreams of a "Life Partner Gang" be a reality as he, Joseline and Mimi Faust forge a forever family? Can Joseline and Mimi continue their personal progress for the sake of Eva? Mimi has happily moved on and is in a new relationship. Number one BFF Ariane Davis gives her stamp of approval on the couple, but can Mimi hold it all together? And how will Stevie and Joseline react when Mimi introduces her new boo to the family?

Karlie's star is burning brighter than ever. A serial entrepreneur, Karlie has opened another boutique, specializing in sexy women's fashions for all occasions and venturing into a new radio career which embraces both her messiness and her sexiness. However, her busy schedule has put her relationship on the rocks with boyfriend and R&B/Soul artist Lyfe Jennings. Luckily she's got her girl Jessica Dime by her side. Together, they may just conquer Atlanta. Cousins Scrappy and Yung Joc are both back on the market after ditching their girlfriends for the single life. The two are shacking up in a bachelor pad with a bevy of beauties by their side, so the turn up will be real. While Scrappy has his hands full with music, fashion, and model management, Joc continues to be on the grind to get his career back on track. However, the cousins may quickly discover that mixing business, pleasure and family could be a recipe for trouble. Tammy Rivera, rapper Waka Flocka Flame's wife, marks her return to Atlanta. Her flourishing company T. Rivera is the umbrella for a myriad of multifaceted companies, including a hair line, a clothing line and a swimwear line. Tammy's brand is rapidly expanding and she aspires to blaze a trail to empower women into feeling sexy as wives and powerful business women. Will she be welcomed with open arms or will her return ignite new beef and old feuds? Momma Dee is finding the honeymoon may soon be over with new husband Ernest -- it seems wedded bliss is sometimes not all it's cracked up to be.
