‘Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta’: What Do Y’all Really Think?

Posted on Jun 2 2017 - 12:58pm by Funky Dineva

Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta

Since so many of our popular shows have had their season finales, most of my nights are filled with Netflix or Hulu selections. Last night my Twitter peeps reminded me to check out ‘Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta’, so I made sure to set my DVR. Chile when I tell you. And imma leave it at that.

Let me start out by saying y’all will not get much from me about Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta. I’m going to keep it all the way 100 with you and tell you why. I’ve got some very strong opinions about the show and moreover the characters in it. However, I’ve also got some very solid relationships with that parents of the young people featured in the show. That being said, I’d hate for my opinions about these people’s kids to ruin my relationships with their parents. Obviously these are relationships that I value, cause had I not, I’d let it rip on this damn show. The only person I will go in on is Bow Wow’s ass. Simple put, he’s wack.

Ohh but don’t fret, because I can’t go in and let have on their asses doesn’t mean that y’all can’t. Sooooo tell us what you think. Trust and believe guys, the networks and the celebs themselves read this stuff. Tell them what you think.

    Bow Wow needs to go somewhere and sit the fuck down, but not before coming out of the damn closet. He is an overly emotional queen who struggles with loving dick. He is such a pussy. And to watch him try and act like a hard man is bad comedy. The rest are just………………

    How are you over 30 with a kid but still “Growing up”….Bow Wow needs to go somewhere and sit down.

    Hello I am loving the show like really. I believe it’s very interesting that the characters are some of my favorite stars. Parenting skills I wouldn’t know too much about but the show is full explosive,entertaining,and intriguing to watch.

    Toya has done a horrible job of raising Reginae! She is disrespectful and has way too much mouth toward adults, so she got what she asked for. Clark-Atlanta will get her all the way together…unless she walks around with security everywhere she goes. Brandon simply told Zonnique the truth…she looked like a trashy thot! She is to pretty to lower herself to industry sexual demands put on black women. No words for Bow-Wow, except now its time to be Shad! Grow up and take care of your family.

    Reginae is an entitled brat who is going to roll up on the wrong one and get her ass tapped. Didnt she get beat up at orientation?

    Zonnique seems nice, not very smart but nice

    Who is Brandon’s people?

    Zonique is trying way too hard to be sexy and she doesn’t need to do that. I think Tiny is trying to be a friend opposed to a mother. I have never addressed my mother as “girl”.
    Reginae is 1 cheeseburger (or baby) away from being fat and she looks well over 17! Reginae has an attitude problem that needs to be checked. I don’t think Brandon was wrong for putting her in her place, act like an adult get treated like one PERIOD!
    I fast forward Bow Wow’s scenes, his daughter is beautiful tho’.
    I don’t think Zonique has a promising future in music, she feels entitled and it’s not a good look.

    I really wanna like this show but its poorly scripted… Bow Wow and Reginae do waaaaay too much… I wanted to like Reginae too, thought she was gonna come off cool and level headed like Zonnique… but I was wrong… Brandon is a queen but I really do think he wants the best for Zonnique… JD daughter, I dont understand why she is there other than to be pretty, hopefully shes not a mess too.
    I dont remember nobody else…

    Only thing i took away from the show is that Wayne’s kid has a scripted attitude.

    I haven’t watch the show, nor will I. By the comments it’ll be a waste of time. However, don’t we have enough inspiring rappers and assholes. What are they contributing towards fashioning the young minds of this generation besides disrespectful behavior and utter disparity. I’m so over main strem media focusing on dead end stagnant futures for our younglings.

    Why is bow wow the lead on his show? Everything with him seems scripted and fake. He is so wack he needs to find a real job and raise his beautiful daughter he is on the downside of his career he needs to stop missing precious moments he could be spending with her chasing a dream that he caught and lived years ago and why is it so hard to spend time between Atlanta and L.A after all he has that “private jet”. Reginae uugh Toya did a lousy job with this one her attitude is horrible n somebody tell her and her mom that LIL Wayne is the star not his kids and his baby mama Toya has been trying her hardest to stay relevant since forever once again get a real job get off of reality t.v and raised that disrespectful child she is very hard to like and her attitude is going to take her down paths that her daddy’s money won’t be able to save her from respect and class will take places that money cant

      Hi totally agree Reginae is very hard to like her attitude is disgusting she thinks she is more important then she is an since she refuses to stay in her 17yr old place Brandon should have got her all the way together and he was right zonnique looked cheap and very basic she looked like your everyday instagram thot. And bow wow is the lamest scariest dude out there i watched both episodes and I guess they did alot of editing because it didn’t look like nobody was thinking about bow wow at least not to the point that he was panicking smh and why is he trying to bring this violence and rap beef crap to reality t.v so all these young kids can start wilding. Set Examples use your platform to show the positive side of the game Tupac and Biggie showed us how real the game gets. Just stop bow wow being extra

    So far, I am enjoying the show.
    Reginae is a lil too grown for my taste. Shouldn’t have gotten herself involved in the situation btwn her Dad & TI. A 17 yr old “child” needs to stay in a child’s place.
    As for the situation with Brandon, people so quick to call her a 17 yr old child who was being bullied **insert eye roll here** by 2 grown people but look how that “child” was talking to them. Sass mouthing grown people. Smh. That mouth is going to get her in a world of trouble & Mommy & Daddy won’t be there to save her.

    Regina has no talent, is not pretty, and struggles with her weight. She needs to be as nice and humble as can be. Toya really dropped the bomb in raising that little girl. It’s so unbecoming. She must have been fronting when her and her mom were on the Wendy Show. She was so sweet!

    Damn i was waiting for you to do a review on this show. I guess i gotta respect where you stand on this but listen i don’t even know where to start. That damn reginae she to much i hate a child that doesn’t know how to stay in a child’s place. She’s way to grown for my liking and I’m wit Brandon all the way for getting in that ass. I feel like if you want to act grown I’m treat your ass like your grown. Then when you can’t
    handle the shit then you calling your momma no honey thats not how it works. And i was disappointed when Tiny and her daughtet were talking about it saying she’s 17 and u can’t talk to a child like that oh yes the hell you can when this child is out here acting like she’s an adult. Dont thtow the shes a child thing in when shes acting how shes acting it’s not gonna work. She’s horrible and it don’t look good her ass gonna keep on and run into the wtong person and get into some shit her mom and dad can’t save her from. Now this damn bow wow this guy is delusional as hell. You can tell his scenes are super fake and he’s a horrible actor. For the life of me I’m trying to figure out who is these people out to get him in these strees lol. He be talking like he been out here slanging or something boy you not bout that life ain’t nobody after you like that. Come on now grow up and Brat ass don’t make it no better instaed of telling his ass bra you delusuonal as fuck you going along with the bullshit. And who chose Bow Wow to rep Atlanta Bow Wow is not from Atlanta whem you think Atlanta you don’t think Bow Wow I’m sure they could have found somebody to repsresent Atlanta a lot better than him. Maybe somebody that’s actually from Atlanta.

    Ms.Ross I know you can’t go in on ya friends kids but I can. Reginae is one ugly big mouth bitch Brandon shouldn’t went back and forth with her though. He should of slapped fire out of that little bitch mouth.We’ll give Toya a pass because we know she’s slow but her daughter is too ugly on the outside not to be cute in the inside.

    I think Reginae is too damn grown. She’s been allowed to be in grown folks business for quite a while and it’s obvious. U can’t start shit wit a grown ass man then expect leniency. Thts not how this works, thts not how any of this works. Bow is a fake thug and it’s corny. Brandon is a queen in the worst type of way. I don’t know how long Imma be able to continue watchin.

    I going to need for you to put some of friendship stuff to the side because somebody needs to let it rip on Reginae ass and Miss Brandon honey because I am tired of reginae’s spolied ass already the only person I really care for on the show is DJ Hurricanes daughter. All in all I think the show will only have one season.

    Since you can’t let me, lil Wayne daughter is to fucking grown and disrespectful. Tiny daughter needs to slow the hell down I know she’s over the age of 18 but tiny need to let her know you don’t have to dress like a slut to be seen..Dj hurricane daughter is just a spoiled brat !!! Bow needs to focus on being a man and raising his daughter.. Deb son needs to sit his ass down !!!

  35. Deidre Denise Hughes June 2, 2017 at 5:28 pm - Reply

    Reginae Carter really needs to stay in a child’s place. She’s way too grown acting and over the top. I’m really surprised that Toya allows her to behave in that manner but I guess you gotta let her have a story line and give us something to talk about because she is talentless. Deb’s son is EXTRA. Zonnique isn’t serious about her music career. She’s just faking it so her parents can think she’s trying to do something with her life. Bow Wow is blah But I can’t be mad at his hustle. This show is boring. Nothing more than a bunch of privileged kids, living off of their parents fortunes.

  37. CJ Gentry June 2, 2017 at 5:28 pm - Reply

    I just feel like Zonnique is still trying to figure out what her place is and what direction her life is headed she seems like a very sweet girl though. As for Bow Wow like JD & Da Brat told him it’s time for him to grow up and start acting like an adult and handle his business like a man should stop doing & saying foolish & coonish shit and own up to your mistakes. Also, stop trying to fit in with the wrong people and trying to be someone you’re not we all know you’re a punk. Reginae is just an annoying spoiled brat who keeps trying to be grow & come off as more mature than what she is. I feel like her parents spent more time trying to be more of her friend and they need to put her in her place. She’s gonna mess around with the wrong person & get her feelings hurt. I don’t know her name, but the daughter of the DJ for the beastie boys who looks like Reginae has admitted that she’s spoiled she doesn’t seem bad, but she acts like things are going to get handed to her like when she quit her job because she felt it got in the wayof pursuing starting a fashion line (why does everybody want to start fashion lines, but that’s another story). Waka Flocka’s brother I see why he never talks about his ass he seems annoying as hell and messy and claims to be a vocal coach, but all he did was play do re mi on the piano and had Zonnique sounding a mess. Jermaine Dupri’s daughter is just there. It’s better than the one with Angela Simmons & Romeo BUT I can say at with them they’re all entrepreneurs, or have a career & get money. Outside of Bow Wow & Zonnique the rest of of the ATL cast don’t do shit they’re just getting a check.

      You right that’s true that’s why I said they’re too busy being friend, but I will give Toya props at least she tries to be the parent and let her know just because you’re about to be grown that doesn’t give you any right to be out here coming out your mouth at others you still got growing up to do.

    It’s alright. Bow wow seems scary af in real life. How u let some dudes run u out of ur own party and u have security? You should’ve had security pat them down and made them come sit right in ur section since they wanna be apart of something. Show them who’s running it. Zonnique doesn’t want to be a star for real. She’s just doing it just to pass time. Deb Antny son seems like a messy queen but I like him. Reginae needs to stay in a child’s place before she gets some adult ass whoopings.
