People are curious about Mariahlynn. According to Google Analytics, the most popular searches about the Love and Hip-Hop star-slash-rapper have to do with her net worth, ethnicity, nationality, and father. (Answers: Her net worth is between $150,000 and $200,000; she’s of Italian and Puerto Rican descent; she’s an American citizen; and her father is from Aibonito, Puerto Rico.)

The blonde popped up on the reality show’s sixth season and has since catapulted into the spotlight. She’s put out almost a dozen music videos — including one for her stripped-down rap hit, “Once Upon A Time (Not Long Ago, I Was a Hoe)” — and is currently tied with Remy Ma — you know, the emcee who’s beefing with Nicki Minaj — for having the most performances on Love and Hip-Hop.

With her spiky, in-your-face voice, Mariahlynn sounds similar to Kash Doll or Honey Cocaine, although the beats she chooses to rap over are pretty lacking. In other words, Mariahlynn might have the looks and vocals down, but she needs to work on getting a new producer, stat.
