Help clean up a part of metro Atlanta with ‘Love & Hip Hop’ cast

Celebrities from the hit reality show “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” are expected to gather in South DeKalb this weekend and assist in a community cleanup.

DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson, whose district includes part of South DeKalb, urged residents to attend the cleanup Saturday morning and a subsequent anti-violence rally.

K. Botchey and others from the ‘Love and Hip Hop’ cast are expected to attend, Johnson’s office said.

Other local celebrities like Yung Joc, Stevie J and Karlie Redd are known for their appearances on the show.
