Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta is a television series that features a group of friends who have grown up in and around the music business. This season currently focuses on the entertainment scene in the city of Atlanta and features the following cast members:
Child hip hop star who grew up under the tutelage of Snoop and mega-producer, Jermaine Dupri
Jermaine Dupri’s biological daughter
Daughter of rap star Lil’ Wayne
Daughter of The Beastie Boys mainstay, DJ Hurricane
Son of famed hip hop manager Ms. Deb, and brother of hip hop star Waka Flocka
Daughter of hip hop power couple T.I. and Tiny
The show follows each of these movers and shakers as they pursue their dreams and attempt to manage the drama in their lives. While Bow Wow decides to release his first album in six years, he has trouble staying focused. From distractions, such as haters and a strained relationship with his father, to his complicated relationship with his daughter’s mother, it becomes difficult to get rid of his writer’s block. The other cast members are working hard to break away from their parents’ fame and create their own success–although they are okay with their parents investing their finances and providing them with business advice on their journey.
In last night’s episode, “99 Problems and Sound Is One,” Ayana showed her dad samples from her upcoming fashion line in the hopes of getting funding. He agreed to help her financially, but wants her to put a plan in place to get a return on his investment. Another highlight was that Brandon, who works in artist development, produced a music showcase but his mother (his godmom who raised him like a son) received all the shine. From technical problems with the microphone and sound system to a lack of respect from one of his artists who forgot her lyrics, Brandon’s night doesn’t go as planned. The biggest shift in the show is when Bow Wow finally becomes fired up to record in the studio, after DJ Funkmaster Flex tweets that his records are “basura (trash).” This crazy feud becomes his inspiration to finally create new music. Inspiration can come from the craziest places sometimes!
