Plot Synopsis

GROWING UP HIP HOP is a one-hour reality series that follows a group of twentysomethings who are the next generation of hip hop royalty, attempting to step outside the shadow of their famous families. Raised by hip hop legends, each member of this tight-knit group is working hard to gain independence, while facing a surprising challenge that will test their loyalties within the group and even relationships with their own mothers and fathers. The group includes: Angela Simmons, daughter of rap pioneer Rev. Run of Run-D.M.C, who is a hip hop socialite, model and fashion designer of her own line, Foofi, and who has had a long-standing friendship with Romeo Miller that could turn into something more; Romeo Miller, a child star formerly known as Lil' Romeo, whose father, hip-hop artist and entrepreneur Master P, has been grooming him to take over the No Limit Empire; Damon "Boogie" Dash -- the namesake of his father, former Roc-A-Fella Records music and media mogul, Damon Dash -- who founded Chipz Cookies with his high school pal; Kristinia DeBarge, the daughter of James DeBarge, who began singing when she was 3-years old and at 12-years old recorded the duet "How I Feel Inside" with her father; TJ Mizell -- the son of Jam Master Jay, one-third of the famous rap group Run-D.M.C -- who spins at the hottest events and venues around the world and best known as A$AP Ferg's DJ; and Egypt Criss, the daughter of Sandra "Pepa" Denton from Salt-N-Pepa and rap icon Treach from Naughty By Nature, who is actively pursuing a solo music career with the help of her momager. Angela Simmons, Romeo Miller, Damon 'Boogie' Dash, Kristinia DeBarge, TJ Mizell and Egypt Criss all return for Season 2, which premiered Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on WEtv. The new season also welcomes two newcomers: Andre King, brother of Swizz Beatz and friend of Angela Simmons; and Briana Latrise, the troubled daughter of Mary J. Blige's now ex-husbandger, Kendu Issacs. The premiere episode opens as the group prepares to come together at the event of the year: Andre's birthday party! Romeo returns from filming overseas to the shocking news of Angela's engagement, creating a lot of chatter and a laundry list of unanswered questions. Kristinia hears the news and becomes nervous that rumors from last season may be haunting her and makes it her mission to clear the air with Angela. Meanwhile, Egypt is hard at work in the studio, on her own, for the first time; however, when mom pops in to check up on her, its clear Pepa is still struggling with letting go. This season, the title of the show has never rung more true, as unforeseen circumstances propel this new generation into adulthood. As the crew continues to try to hustle and pave their own way, friendships, iconic families, loyalties, and the world of hip hop will may never be the same. Season 3 of GROWING UP HIP HOP premiered on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv, as the heirs of hip hop legends seek to cement their royal status in the cutting, treacherous music industry. For Romeo Miller (Master P's son), his return home from filming Empire forces him to face his dad who sends him back to his roots in New Orleans to teach him a lesson. But when the ultimate betrayal from his right-hand man turned snake in the grass sparks a brutal confrontation, the empire is put in major danger. Angela Simmons (Rev Run's daughter) finds herself caught between her sisters, Vanessa and Daryan, as bad blood from their teenage years comes simmering to the surface. With her sisters at odds, and her fledgling relationship with her fiance on the rocks, is there any safe harbor for new mom Angela to turn to other than her old flame, Romeo? Hot to break out in the biz for the second time, songbird Kristinia DeBarge (James DeBarge's daughter) finds herself the subject of vicious rumors that threaten to derail her comeback. Adding fuel to the fire is a suspect to the throne, a young woman who claims to be the secret love child from James and Janet Jackson's marriage 31 years ago. Can Kris make it through round two of her never-ending sister saga? Meanwhile, Boogie Dash (Damon Dash's son) must go deep within himself to confront a secret and when he careens out of control, and finds himself at odds with the law. wFresh off a move to Hollywood, CA, Egypt Criss (daughter of Sandra 'Pepa' Denton) opens the chambers to a family lore and is shaken by the skeletons in her mother's closet. How will she process her mother's deep trauma and will their relationship ever be the same? Briana Latrise (Mary J. Blige's stepdaughter) clashes with the more privileged heirs in the clique, letting her brash and feisty personality make enemies of her former friends. They've got the genes and the talents to make it big... but with the flashy family name comes more insurmountable obstacles. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown... and everything done in the dark must come to the light.
