Before Erica Mena was the turn up queen on Monday nights and before Peter Gunz and Rich Dollaz were working in the studio they were just regular people aspiring to do big things. We found the best throwback photos of all our favorite Love & Hip Hop cast members from a wee little Tara Wallace to a teenage Yandy Smith way back in the day.

Check out our gallery now and see this cast before they were stars! Don’t miss an all new Love & Hip Hop, Monday at 8 PM ET/PT.
