WE-TV announced it's rolling out "Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta" on Thursday, May 25 at 10 p.m.
The show's biggest name is actor and child rap star Bow Wow, who announced last summer he was retiring from music at age 30.
He has help from Snoop Dogg, Da Brat and Jermaine Dupri to fashion his comeback album.
The rest of the cast is Shaniah Mauldin, daughter of Dupri and sister figure to Bow; Reginae Carter, the daughter of Lil Wayne and Toya Wright; Zonnique Pullins, the daughter of T.I. & Tiny; Brandon Barnes, the son of famed Hip Hop manager Debra Antney and brother to Hip Hop star Waka Flocka Flame; and Brandon's cousin Ayana Fite, the daughter of The Beastie Boys mainstay, DJ Hurricane.
Here's the extended tease:
The publicists actually used the phrase "Hotlanta" in the press release. Clearly, they are not from Atlanta.
Here's the offending paragraph:
It's time for the next generation to bring their A game and take their talent to the next level. But when things hit the streets of Hotlanta, all the fame could come with a heavy price. Whose empire will rise and whose will fall?
