The new season of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta drops on Jan. 11. That’s only a few short weeks away, but now that we’ve seen the new trailer, we’re not sure we can wait that long.
This season will be jam-packed with intriguing storylines from strivers going under the knife to big names clashing, if the trailer is to be believed. In just a few minutes, the trailer promises everything from a showdown between Bow Wow and Jermaine Dupri to a beef between Reginae Carter and Brandon Barnes.
On the Bow Wow and JD tip, the trailer says that Dupri stiffed Bow Wow after some sort of tour. Bow Wow has a surprising ally in JD’s daughter Shaniah Mauldin. The falling out leads Bow Wow to weigh over whether he should deal with the mega-producer and industry titan while making his new album or go his own way. The fact that he’s even considering it leads to some serious tension in his own camp.
Outside of that, Barnes and Reginae’s beef gets serious, taking time away from the brother of Waka Flocka Flame’s quest to become famous in his own right.
Aside from both of these storylines, fans have even more options as Zonnique Pullins is torn between using her connections to her mother Tiny Harris to jump on the Xscape reunion tour or trying to make her own way and avoid the association with her famous fam. It’s sure to be a wild season, and we’ve barely seen any of it.
We hope that Reginae gets into all the beef this year. She’s already shown us that she can handle all the smoke when he joined her mama for a tag team of internet gossiper Khia.
“We calling out, we want Khia,” Toya Wright said in the widely shared video. “F**k Khia ol dirty a** worrying about other people all the time. Go make you a hit.”
Reginae jumped in to defend mama Toya. “My mother is pregnant right now,” she said. “Obviously, she’s obsessed with Trina she’s mad that she could never be the baddest.”
The crosstalk earned Reginae a tongue-lashing from the rapper and gossip. It began with a warning:
“That’s one thing that I know because, baby, one thing that you need to know. Don’t you ever in your 19 years of living try and get into the ring with a professional roaster. Your mammy should have told you but, see, they ain’t taught you nothing. Your mother or your grandmother ain’t taught you nothing. They should have warned you about coming into the street with all these 16-18 wheelers.”

She then said that Toya needs to allow Reginae to be her daughter. “You have been her husband, her sister, her friend, you have been everything to her since you was a little girl including her bread. Her meal ticket. Her bank account,” she said to Reginae.
Reginae and Toya claimed they were working on filming the new season during the back and forth, so here’s to hoping the Khia beef gets screen time.
Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta premieres Thursday, Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Catch it on WE.
