WE are taking a trip from the West Coast to the East Coast — “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” premieres this spring! The series will chronicle the perks and perils of being born into Hip Hop royalty in the city that the New York Times called “Hip Hop’s center of gravity.”
The rich history of the Atlanta hip hop scene has fostered a unique sense of pride and closeness among the artists that resembles a family. But like any family, Atlanta’s next generation of hip hop stars do not always get along. Growing up together in the shadow of their legendary parents has established tight bonds and bitter rivalries, as everybody fights for their chance to push their way into the spotlight.
This well-connected Atlanta crew features….
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
