With the continuing popularity of reality television, B.E.T. is giving us a new original gem lighting up Tuesday nights titled, Hustle in Brooklyn. The series premiered on October 16th after the 2018 B.E.T. Hip Hop Awards.

Since then, other networks have jumped on board to document the lives of black professionals, socialites and housewives alike with shows such as Black Ink, Housewives of Atlanta and Married to Medicine.
According to its official description, Hustle in Brooklyn will explore “the social and professional lives of some of Brooklyn’s most sought after and influential personalities- from up and coming Hip-Hop artists to internationally known DJs to one of RocNation’s protégé’s.” As anticipation builds, we take a peek at the cast:
