The new season is going to be wild
For fans of the long-running Black Ink Crew series, the new season can’t come soon enough. We already know that the season will feature intriguing story lines on the macro (Ceaser opening a new shop) and micro (Sky dealing with her family) levels. With added conflicts swirling around the show and between the artists, it’s guaranteed to be an entertaining season and fans are clamoring for any bit of news they can get before the premiere.
Well, VH1 has heard your prayers, posting the first four minutes of the new season for diehard Crew-vians to whet their whistle. In the new clip, Ceaser and Sky discuss opening up a new shop in the ATL and what that expansion means for them.
Ceaser kicks off the show by revealing how he struggled to start up his shops in New York and his troubles with ex Dutchess. The show flashes back to Ceaser’s messy split with Duchess before jumping to his new shop in Atlanta. Shots of spaghetti junctions and Peachtree Street mingle with Ceaser’s typical king act.
“This is a new era in Black Ink history,” Cease says before introducing the crew he brought down to Atlanta.
He goes on to say that his old shops are getting makeovers even as he opens his latest outposts.
The shops aren’t the only thing getting an upgrade. Sky shows off her Real Housewives-ready mansion noting that “the money goes a lot further down here” — but the big house isn’t the biggest surprise.
Midway through her tour, Sky drops in on a bedroom to find Ceaser with his latest thing Persuasion. It looks like Black Ink has moved beyond the workplace. Ceaser and Sky are co-habitating and that’s bound to lead to more than a few stories as the season goes on.
Outside of her co-habitation with Ceaser, Sky will likely show the world her path toward getting back in her son’s good graces. The pair had a very public beef after Sky posted a photo of a FaceTime conversation between them.
In a long rant, her son accused Sky of stepping out on him and detailed the struggles he had getting back on his feet following a stint in jail.
“I was released from jail without an ID and when I went to the family,” he told blogger GossipViv. ”I was told that my social security card had been lost. I spent two months struggling to get the information I needed just to get my ID,.No help was offered from my mom, not even recognition of me being alive until I did this interview.”
He also said that her recent overtures toward him wouldn’t make up for the years she was absent. He explained:
“That doesn’t make up for the conversations we never had over the past 10 years. This picture was took while she was expressing how sorry she was as a mother and telling me what she was going to do to make it better. Hearing that after so many years could only make me smile and that’s when this picture was took and published without me even being told by my own mother.”
This will no doubt come up as the season goes on.
