WE tv has ordered the six-episode docu-series Growing Up Hip Hop from Entertainment One, scheduled for a late 2015 premiere. The series follows the next generation of hip hop royalty as they attempt to step outside the shadow of their famous families. Music legends Damon Dash, Rev. Run, Russell Simmons, Master P, El DeBarge and Pepa are always nearby as each up-and-comer tries to build their own life and fortune in careers ranging from music to acting and fashion.
At every turn they are challenged with maintaining their own identity while evolving the hip-hop sound and culture they come from. “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. -WeTV
