#HipHopHappyHour: Salt-N-Pepa

Things are getting pretty spicy on this all-new episode of Growing Up Hip Hop. Lil' Eazy-E spills all the tea to the Simmons siblings and later tries to set up a sit-down with Romeo. Let's just say the #GUHH crew has mixed feelings. Elsewhere, Pepa meets up with Egypt to discuss the big fight with Briana. Toast to the new episode with this "Salt-N-Pepa" cocktail, created by NYC bartender @mdfkandi!
