Russell Simmons & Master P to Star in Growing Up Hip Hop


Courtesy WE tvThe offspring of rap royalty are heading to WE tv’s new reality series, Growing Up Hip Hop.

The network announced that the series will follow the famous kids of legends like Damon Dash, Rev. Run, Russell Simmons, Master P, El DeBarge and Pepa as they navigate their own careers.

“Hip-hop is a hugely popular music genre, but beyond the songs it has become a lifestyle and has influenced a generation of young people,” said Marc Juris, WE tv’s president. “Growing Up Hip Hop profiles what it’s like to be raised by hip-hop legends, living in their shadow while trying to balance success and independence. This series will be right at home in our growing line-up focused on the authenticity and the challenges of real people and real relationships, and we can’t wait to share these distinctive original stories with WE tv viewers.”

Growing Up Hip Hop will features six-episodes and is scheduled for a late 2015 premiere.
