From MTO: just got some STUNNING news - rapper Lil Scrappy is getting FIRED from Love And Hip Hop Atlanta. According to a top snitch who works in production, Scrappy has been acting real BRAND NEW since getting signed on. So they figured they'd give him THE DUECES . . . and go in another Direction.

With Scrappy gone, the producers have signed WAKA FLOCKA and his fiance Tammy to join next season. And he's not cheap. We're told that Waka will be paid a reported $500K for the season.
