We’re just days away from the Black Ink Crew (New York) Season 7 premiere, and VH1 is teasing fans by previewing the first six minutes of the episode.
The clip opens up with Ceaser throwing a block party at his 113th street shop in Harlem to celebrate the upcoming launch of a new shop in New Orleans. “You heard right! Four shops, bitches!” Ceaser says excitedly. “Now I have 113th, 125th, ATL, and New Or-leans!”
When the party moves inside the shop, the cameras cut to Alex and Donna tonguing each other down. “Dayummmmm!” Kitty says. “Is she gonna come up for air?!” Apparently, the two have gotten extremely close ever since professing their love to one another since the Miami trip at the end of Season 6. “I just love everything about this man,” says Donna.
Because Sky can’t do anything without being extra, she makes a huge grand entrance by being carried into the shop on a platform being held up by four shirtless men. “I am the Empress of Black Ink, so of course I deserve the same royal treatment that Ceaser got the last time he opened up a shop,” she says. “Therefore, I’m here with these half-naked servants to celebrate the grand opening of Black Ink New Orleans, bitches!”
Things are still pretty tense between Tati and the rest of the cast, so when she walks in with an emotional support dog, the jokes start flying. “I need emotional support,” she explains, because “I don’t know what to expect from some of you guys.”
Knowing exactly what she’s talking about, everyone says “Ooh!” and looks at Jadah. If you’ll remember, Jadah jumped on her in Miami for allegedly messing around with Teddy. Then, lest we forget, we’re treated to a montage of Tati being attacked by Young Bae and Donna, and, of course, the Jadah incident.
The Black Ink Crew Season 7 Episode 1 preview ends with Ceaser announcing that he’ll be taking some of the crew to New Orleans to help open the new shop, while others will stay behind to watch over the New York shops.
