‘Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta’
WEtv’s new series, “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta,” premiered on Thursday night (May 25) and it was definitely an interesting watch.
The “Growing Up Hip Hop” spinoff stars Shad “Bow Wow” Moss, Shaniah Mauldin (daughter of Jermaine Dupri), Reginae Carter (daughter of Toya Wright and Lil Wayne), Ayana Fite (daughter of DJ Hurricane), Brandon Barnes (son of Debra Antney), and Zonnique Pullins (daughter of Tiny Harris).
In the first episode, Bow Wow returns to Atlanta to celebrate the release of “Ignorant Sh*t,” his joint mixtape Soulja Boy.
It wasn’t long before and Jermaine Dupri were bumping heads on which direction he should take with his music. Da Brat joined in to put a full court press on Bow Wow by pressuring him to relocate back to Atlanta to work on some new music.
That’s not as easy as it seems as Shad isn’t ready to abandon his fatherly duties with his daughter, Shai, and his efforts to rekindle his relationship with her mother, Joie.
It didn’t help when old beef caught up with Bow Wow at his listening party.
Brandon Barnes is completely frustrated with his artist, Zonnique, after she was distracted and totally uninterested in her voice lesson with him.
“Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” also offers an inside look at Lil Wayne‘s Black Lives Matter drama and how it impacted Reginae.
After T.I. publicly scolded Wayne for his remarks, Reginae and Zonnique made a verbal agreement to stay out of it.
Toya Wright even implored her daughter to stay out of grown men’s business. Unfortunately, Reginae couldn’t resist the urge to add her 2 cents to the mix.
Ayanna and Shaniah felt like atmosphere in the premiere episode. Hopefully, their storylines will develop as the series goes on.
It’s no surprise, Bow Wow had the most camera time as he’s the executive producer of the show.
But, one thing is clear – there will be an abundance of drama!
