When it comes to reality television we so often get the same “unscripted” drama. We have our daily dose of hair pulling, name calling, and boyfriend drama. But, with WE tv gearing up for their second installment of Growing Up Hip Hop, we can expect something new and refreshing when it comes to the reality scene.
Yesterday, PYNK had the pleasure of getting you the inside scoop of what to expect for the upcoming season at the premier screening along with attendees like Mona Scott Young, Angela Yee, and Master P. And lets just say you are all in for a treat on October 13th with the first episode surrounding Angela Simmons unexpected engagement to a mystery man despite her and Romeo’s undeniable love for each other.
But, the biggest surprise for this season is that the show actually gets more in depth and has a more authentic view into the other cast members lives. I say this because last season seemed more about the popular cast members being Angela and Romeo and we never really got a sense of who TJ, Egypt, Boogie, and Kristinia really were.
And this season the other cast members are bringing it! Egypt, being the daughter of feisty hip hop legend Pepa has the uphill battle of finding herself in the music industry whereas her mom wants her finding herself in the books for college.
Boogie, the son of hip hop entrepreneur and mouth piece Damon Dash has his issues with partying drinking and the law. Despite him being the troubled bad boy of the cast he actually brings life and entertainment to the show. And all that personality was definitely present at the screening when he joked about his new business venture, edibles (aka weed infused treats).
And the wild card of this season is that we are possibly in for a new cast member. Andre King, the brother of super producer Swizz Beatz makes a guest appearance on the first episode and there’s no word yet if he is officially a main cast member but I am sure we can expect to see more of him throughout the season.
But, overall the expectation for this season should be met with lots of drama, dream chasing, and real life experiences that allow us as the viewers to see a different side of these hip hop proteges.
