BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 3, 2012 -- As beach bags and bathing suits are put into storage and backpacks are filled with textbooks, class is back in session at VH1 with premieres all September long. VH1 has a full Monday night schedule with the series premiere of "Basketball Wives" spin-off "Ev & Ocho," the return of "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle" and the second season premiere of "Basketball Wives: LA." VH1 also celebrates the rise of rap music in VH1's Emmy Award-winning franchise VH1 Rock Docs presentation of "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap," directed by Ice-T.

"T.I. & TINY: THE FAMILY HUSTLE," PREMIERES MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 AT 9PM*

After proving that he still holds the throne, T.I., "The King of the South," continues to take on Hollywood with a recurring role on the Starz hit television series "Boss" and a new movie role starring alongside Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy in the upcoming "Identity Theft." Tip is also preparing to release Trouble & Triumph: A Novel of Power & Beauty, the follow-up to his successful book debut Power and Beauty, and his highly anticipated ninth studio album. Wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris is also making moves of her own this season by expanding her Pretty Hustle brand and working to take her group the OMG Girlz to a whole new level, all while designing a new lingerie line.

All six kids will be back this season, including music hopefuls son Domani and daughter Niq Niq. While Domani works on his rap game as a solo artist, Niq Niq will be making more hit music with the OMG Girlz. After a successful run on the "Scream Tour" and their first single "Gucci This (Gucci That)" blowing up on the charts, the girls are quickly taking the music world by storm.

With two successful parents and a group of kids equally hungry to make it in the game, the Harris family is ready to take on season two on "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle" premiering on VH1 Monday, September 3 at 9PM.*

"T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle" is created and executive produced by 51 Minds' Cris Abrego, Christian Sarabia, Rabih Gholam and Ben Samek (CAPI), as well as Category 5 Entertainment's Brian Sher and Stella Bulochnikov ("T.I.'S Road to Redemption"). For VH1, the series is executive produced by Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Jeff Olde.

"EV & OCHO," SERIES PREMIERE MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 AT 9:30 PM/ET

VH1 has followed Evelyn's story through four seasons of "Basketball Wives." Now "Ev & Ocho" presents a behind-the-scenes look at Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson and Evelyn Lozada's journey to "I Do." Through an eleven-part series, including a two-part season finale, audiences will get a glimpse inside of Evelyn and Chad's relationship. Between Evelyn promoting her new book Inner Circle and going through marriage counseling with Chad, Evelyn is forced to put all past issues on the back-burner as she deals with tough family decisions and the ever important question, "Who will walk me down the aisle?" Viewers will watch Evelyn and Chad work together through the tough times to reach the goal of their dream wedding with celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine. From deciding on the perfect cake and designer dress, to Evelyn dealing with Ocho's unconventional wedding demands, this ceremony will definitely go down in the history books. Preparation isn't easy, and the couple's timing is tight as Evelyn rushes to make sure her ill brother-in-law can be a part of her very special day. With two overflowing social calendars and two different personalities to match, these two realize planning "happily ever after" won't be a smooth course.

"BASKETBALL WIVES: LA" PREMIERES MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 AT 8PM ET/PT

Taking the screen for a second season, VH1's "Basketball Wives LA" rebounds with new friendships and fresh additions to the team. Familiar faces returning are Jackie Christie, Gloria and Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Draya Michele. Other friends also join in to make season two even spicier than the first.

Sisters Laura and Gloria try to mend their strained relationship, which has been tenuous due to the pressures of their chaotic lives. Gloria faces a turning point in her acting career and finds herself at the brink of her first big role, but will this push her relationship with Laura to the edge? Laura has a hot new figure and is set on making big life changes. Jackie attempts at making amends with the group, but has too much damage already been done? Malaysia makes good on her promise to step out of her comfort zone and pushes herself to hang-glide, skydive and more. Draya juggles a booming modeling career and the launch of her own swimwear line. And of course, another year means another vow renewal for Jackie and Doug Christie with the theme sure to blow the other 16 celebrations out of the water. "Basketball Wives LA" premieres Monday, September 10 at 8:00 PM.*

Shed Media is producing the series. Executive producers for Shed Media are Nick Emmerson, Alex Demyanenko, Jennifer O'Connell and Sean Rankine. Shaunie O'Neal is an executive producer. Executive producers for VH1 are Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes and Tom Huffman.
