Chanel West Coast Didn't Like Love And Hip Hop For One Reason

Chanel West Coast is MTV's hostess with the mostess. She's a staple of Ridiculousness, along with Sterling "Steelo" Brim and Rob Dyrdek. While she's used to the MTV life, she's first and foremost a rapper. In fact, out of all the favorite songs she's ever done, some of her songs have actually led to some major traction, including feuds. One of the most notable ones was with Sharon Stone, and it was all because of Chanel's song "Sharon Stoned."

Feuds or not, Chanel has made a name for herself and a considerable net worth too. When she's not spending her millions in a very lavish way, she continues to focus on her top priority: music. Her songs have evolved throughout the years, and much of her rap has a really important message. So it makes sense that Chanel didn't really love her time on Love and Hip Hop.

Chanel ain't about the drama

Chanel West Coast joined the cast of VH1's Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood for its fourth season, according to In Touch Weekly, in 2017. "It's really cool to finally be on a show where I'm able to show more of my life and who I really am as a person," Chanel told In Touch. "I've been on TV for years, but I've always been kind of a side character. And it hasn't really shown my music at all," she said, referring to her time on Ridiculousness and Fantasy Factory. 

Well, Love & Hip Hop definitely showcased her music, but Chanel didn't love the experience and spoke about the challenging sides to the show on Angela Yee's Lip Service on Oct. 20, 2020. There was a "lot of setting up drama," Chanel explained, noting that drinking was strongly encouraged while the cast waited for their scenes. "I'm not really into that sh*t," she added.

Yee pointed out though that while the con of the show was the drama, there were major pros through Chanel getting her music out there. "TV does help a lot," Chanel admitted, once again proving that her life is all about music.
