A short history of Masika Kalysha on ‘Love & Hip Hop’

It has been a while since we’ve seen Kalysha in the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Still, she’s one of the most notable players and recognizable faces from the Hollywood series. Kalysha debuted in the series for its first season and later became a series regular when she came back to the show for its third season.

When she was a main cast member during the third season, the plot involving her was mostly about her getting by pregnant by Fetty Wap and the birth of her daughter, Khari Barbi Maxwell. In the fourth season, her storyline was mostly about her feud Alexis Skyy, an ex-girlfriend of Fetty Wap.

In the fourth season, she returned for a supporting role. Most of her storylines while on the show have involved romances and feuds. In the first season, her primary storyline chronicled a love triangle with Mally Mal and Miss Nikki Baby. Kalysha was later in a love triangle with Yung Berg and Hazel E, and her feud with Hazel E lasted through the remainder of the time they both were on the show.

For the third season, when she was a main cast member, her storyline mainly revolved around her getting pregnant by Fetty Wap and the birth of their daughter, Khari. While on the fourth season, her feud Alexis Skyy took up most of her storyline.

Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood is not the only reality series that Kalysha has starred in, as she also appeared for a short stint on Growing Up Hip Hop as a main cast member.
