Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy recently sat down with AllHipHop.com to discuss his role in the upcoming season of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”, which will premiere tonight (June 18).
Scrappy is featured on the show as he attempts to rebuild his relationship with the mother of his daughter. And while “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” is a reality show, the rapper said that he was looking forward to acting in more films.
“It’s kind of weird with the camera on you like that, and it’s not a video, it’s acting,” Lil Scrappy told AllHipHop.com. “You can’t be yourself; you have to be a whole other person that you’re not.”
Scrappy, who had a role in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” television series, said that seeming himself on television made him want to perfect the craft of acting, something he is taking very serious.
“I was just in Tyler Perry’s “House of Pain”; it was a good look for me; I loved it,” Lil Scrappy told AllHipHop.com. “I want to keep doing it..I just know there’s a time and place for everything, and when that time comes, I’m going to be all the way in it.”
Although Scrappy has been involved in television projects, he is still focused on the upcoming release of his third studio album, The Grustle.
VH1’a “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” is set to premiere tonight at 8:00 PM ET.
