Producer Mally Mall is currently serving a 33-month prison sentence after pleading guilty in October 2019 to running a high-end prostitution ring outside of Las Vegas. But prior to his sentence, he managed to film an entire season of Marriage Boot Camp: The Hip Hop Edition alongside N.O.R.E. and his wife Neri.
During an interview with HipHopDX last month, the couple addressed Mally Mall’s predicament and revealed he thought he’d actually skated with probation in the case. Neri also admitted she had no idea the depths of the charges against him.
“You know what’s crazy about that?” N.O.R.E. asks. “I can’t speak for somebody else, but I think he did this prior to all of that. At some point of the show, he actually comes to us and says he got probation. I guess the judge did grant him probation.
“I don’t know what happened, but then after we left the house, that’s when we got the news that he actually got the 33 months or whatever amount of time. So he was actually told on the show that he beat it and that he got probation, and we actually opened a bottle of Ace of Spades and celebrated.”
Mally Mall was asked to turn himself in over the summer to begin serving his sentence, something nobody saw coming.
“Again, this is a WEtv show,” N.O.R.E. continues. “We respect them. I can’t ever tell anybody how to do they show, but it’s actually on there because there’s cameras everywhere. He truly thought he beat it. I think that he thought that he was good and then at the end, the judge just … it was a different judge or something. I don’t know.”
Neri chimes in with, “We didn’t really know much about what was going on. Mally kept it kind of quiet. He mentioned it a couple times in the house, but to be honest, that’s something that he kept to himself, and I didn’t even know what was going on because that was my first time being in the house with him.”
But that wasn’t the only bombshell. Mally Mall, who entered the house with purported girlfriend Treasure, wasn’t actually in a relationship at all. In exclusive clip obtained by DX, Treasure confesses it was all a scam to help further their respective careers. Everyone in the house, including Monie Love and husband Tuff as well as Amber Laura and partner Siir Brock, were shocked by the admission.
“We agreed to come on this show because I would have liked to get more publicity for my career,” Treasures says. “And you wanted to get more publicity so you wouldn’t have to go to jail.”
The full episode airs via WEtv on Thursday (November 11). In the meantime, check out the clip below and stay locked to HipHopDX for an exclusive interview with Monie Love.
