“Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” on WE-TV has had a major cast overhaul, deleting three people and bringing in three new ones.
The three who are out: Tamika "Tiny" Cottle's daughter
Zonnique Pullins, Lil Wayne and Toya Wright's daughter Reginae Carter and Debra Atney's son Brandon Barnes. The three newbies: veteran hip-hop artist Lil Mama (former judge on "America's Best Dance Crew"), Masika (from "Love and Hip Hop Hollywood") and Kiyomi, Bow Wow's Instagram model lady friend
The show has obviously thrown out the original concept, meaning all the main cast members have to be sons and daughters of famous hip-hop acts.
The third season is set to debut in October. It’s currently in production.
Jasmine Brand actually broke the Lil Mama/Masika news back in July.
