'Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta' is back with more Brandon/Reginae drama

Posted Thursday, January 11, 2018 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

"Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta" on WE-TV, which returned tonight for a second season, is fascinating because it features so many famous Atlanta faces from other reality shows just as much as the regular cast.

Look! There's Da Brat and Jermaine Dupri from "The Rap Game"! And Tiny from "T.I. and Tiny!" And Deb Antney from "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta"! And Toya Wright from "Tiny and Toya!"

Bow Wow - the biggest name on the cast itself is still working an album after some fall out with JD. He seems to be trying to distance himself from his mentor, much to Da Brat's chagrin.

In the meantime, Toya and Deb try to get their kids Reginae Carter and Brandon Barnes to get along after they got into a battle last year. Reginae felt like Brandon disrespected her dad Lil Wayne and their relationship went downhill from there. In the first episode that aired tonight, they all meet up at a restaurant for an attempted detente but we only see teasers in terms of how it plays out.
