KarmaJonez Exclusive: Karma Attends the Private Screening of WE TV’s “Growing Up Hip Hop”


(ATLANTA) –On Tuesday, WEtv hosted a red carpet premiere for their upcoming show “Growing Up Hip Hop,” an unscripted series that follows the lives of the children of music legends Rev. Run, Master P, Damon Dash, James DeBarge, Jam Master Jay, Sandy “Pepa” Denton and Treach.

Cast members include Angela SimmonsRomeo MillerBoogie DashKristinia DeBargeTJ Mizell and Egypt Criss were on hand to enjoy the festivities with over 500 local influencers at SCADShow, where the screening and Q&A moderated by multimedia personality Ebony Steele – took place. Afterward, guests joined the cast at Whiskey Park for a lively after-party featuring music by DJ Mars and Mizell, which I THOROUGHLY enjoyed, by the way. (Open bar). Click below for more details!

So this was definitely one of the most popping screenings I’ve been to all year. EVERYbody and their mama made it out to this one. I was impressed.

I was super anxious to see this show, for some reason. I think mainly because of the legendary artists attached to the series. When you’re talking Pepa, Rev Run, Dame Dash, etc., there’s bound to be a good storyline.

So after seeing the first episode, here’s my take on it-I like it. Do I LOVE it? Well, that remains to be seen. I found Angela Simmons and Lil’ Romeo to be highly entertaining. And trust me when I tell you, Dame Dash is the HIGHLIGHT of this episode. He’ll quickly become your favorite parent on the show.

Without giving too much away, Angela and Romeo have some kinda romance going on that we can’t quite put our fingers on, Boogie Dash is making his own waves in the food industry, TJ is making things POP as a DJ, Egypt is trying to get her singing career to take off, and Kristinia is struggling to stay on track while she deals with her father being locked up. There’s definitely a lot to take in!

I learned a lot about everybody during the Q&A, but all I really wanna know is…Angela and Romeo-are y’all dating, or nah?

They said we’ll have to watch to find out…So I guess that confirms that I’ll be tuning in every week!

Additional attendees included Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore, Mimi Faust, Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, Mama June (WE tv’s “Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars), Alanna “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson (TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”), Erica Dixon, Althea Hart, Demetria McKinney, Gocha Hawkins, Dice Dixon, Toya Wright, Monyetta Shaw, Drea Kelly, the casts of “Selling It: In the ATL” and “Cutting It: In the ATL,” Shanti DasAngela Watts and many, many more.
