#HipHopHappyHour: Freedom & LiberTEA

Like tonight’s cocktail, this episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: New York starts off on the rocks! Luckily, if anyone can handle a tough situation, it’s the #GUHHNY fam. And, when JoJo finds himself in handcuffs, you bet the rest of the crew is right there to help him! However, battle lines are drawn elsewhere after Charli confronts Irv about an unsettled beef and Ryan oversteps his boundaries with Madina. Afterward, #HipHopHappyHour goes from on the rocks to rocky during Untold Stories of Hip Hop! A$AP Rocky exposes his criminal past, Nelly confesses who is REALLY to blame for Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl mishap, and Cardi B and Trina reveal how their “mo money” created “mo problems!” Will Madina fire back? Was Janet’s Superbowl scandal planned? WE can’t wait to sit down with a glass of “Freedom & LiberTEA” and find out!
