Sexxy Lexxy Decided to Focus on Her Solo Career & Left BBOD
When Smith was first introduced to Love & Hip Hop viewers, she was a member of the female rap duo, “Bad B****** On Deck” also known as “BBOD,” with fellow Harlem rapper Miss Moe Money. After they exited the reality show, the group broke up. During an interview on New York City’s Power 105.1 radio station in 2018, Smith explained why they decided to part ways.
“I just wanted to work on my own solo career and brand myself as a solo artist,” she said. “I just feel like we outgrew each other.”
In 2019, she released her solo EP, The Diamond.
“The meaning behind the project is that diamonds are made under pressure,” she said in a 2019 interview with Wazzup Radio. “I went through a lot but it groomed something beautiful.”
BBOD Were Never Official Love & Hip Hop Cast Members
Even though Miss Moe Money and Smith appeared on the entire sixth season of Love & Hip Hop New York, they were never officially members of the New York cast.
“What people don’t know is BBOD were never cast members on Love & Hip Hop,” Miss Moe Money said during an interview with IHeartRadio. “Never. We never were signed to a second season. We were actually signed as appearance people. Meaning we might be on a few episodes, here and there, which we actually knew. Our story turned out to be so big that we became, I guess, if you want to say, cast members because we were on the intro and everything. We never even got an opportunity to renegotiate our contract.”
Smith added that they became cast members and had no idea.
“They didn’t inform us that we were cast members. They never came to us like, “Hey, so listen. You guys are interesting. We want to make you’re cast members.” It never got to that point. But, whatever, we’ll just keep grinding. We’re not going to start no trouble.”
