Sources close to production tell us … the show’s been struggling with weak story lines and uninteresting characters … and producers felt they needed to add a big name rapper to liven things up.
Right now … Ray J is the biggest star on “L&HHLA” … and producers think he and Soulja Boy will be a huge hit together. Sources close to Ray J say he’s pumped about his new co-star.
If it’s drama they want … the sizzurp-slurpin’ Soulja should bring plenty of it.
Guess Ray J’s life of struggle wasn’t dialing up the ratchet factor enough. Go figure.
