Cast of “Growing Up Hip Hop” Talk Season 3

The heirs of hip hop legends are preparing for the start of the new season of “Growing Up Hip Hop.”  A few of the cast members dropped by the studios of WHUR to talk about Season 3 with Taylor Thomas.  Beautiful bold and unapologetic Angela Simmons, Vanessa Simmons, and Kristinia DeBarge share their thoughts on living in the spotlight of their parents and how the show has impacted their various relationships.

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 fiancé on the rocks, is there any safe harbor for new mom Angela to turn to other than her old flame, Romeo?  For Romeo Miller (Master P’s son), his return home from filming Empire forces him to face his dad.

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?

The third season of WEtv’s  “Growing Up Hip Hop,” premieres Thursday, July 20th at 9pm ET/PT.
