The 9Mag group from the Black Ink Crew were living it up in Jamaica despite the drama and tomfoolery.  The show’s episodes in Jamaica aired in August 2018 in Season 4 of the Black Ink Crew Chicago. In these episodes, a division in the 9 Mag shop resulted in two separate shops, 9 Mag and Loyal Ink.  Ryan is rebuilding  Mag, while Van, Don, Charmaine, Lily and all of the other cast members, with the exception of Junior are a part of a new shop called Loyal Ink.

Did you see the living accommodations? Ryan’s group stayed at the GeeJam Hotel while the Loyal Ink crew were posted up in an equally beautiful but unnamed villa.

The GeeJam Hotel on San San Estate has three cabins, a suite, and a three-bedroom villa. There’s also a gym, spa, recording studio, a bar and a pool.

The Blue Lagoon and Frenchman’s Cove, two gorgeous beaches, are near the Geejam Hotel.  Frenchman’s Cove has clear water and soft sand on its small remote beach in Portland, Jamaica.

Although the 9 Mag group stayed at GeeJam  Hotel, the Loyal Ink group stayed at an unnamed villa. They were probably close to the hotel, because Don and Ashley went to the Frenchman’s Cove. Don pushed Ashley in the popular swing there.

The Black Ink Crew in Jamaica is among a list of other reality TV shows that have been to the island.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Love and Hip Hop, the Bachelor and the Braxtons all visited and filmed in Jamaica at least once. The casts stayed in various hotels, resorts and villas in Jamaica, ranging from the Sandals and  Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay,  to the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande.
