Episode Information

On Season 4 of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta it looks like things will continue to go down and get dirty in the Dirty South! A life in the fast lane spirals out of control when a violent night between rapper Bow Wow and his then girlfriend Kiyomi sends Atlanta police rushing to the scene where they are arrested and charged with battery. The headlines and humiliation hound Bow Wow, as his clawed and bruised mugshot and criminal charges loom over his life-long career. Things take a turn for the worse when the 911 calls and leaked footage hit social media, gossip blogs, and international news. Bow’s entire support system including Angela Simmons (aka the one that got away) and surrogate fathers Jermaine Dupri and Snoop Dogg all rise to the challenge of keeping Bow on the straight and narrow and out of jail. As the case unfolds, the consequences of one shocking night may be more severe than Bow ever could have anticipated...for himself and his young daughter Shai. Straight outta their dream wedding, hip hop icons Waka Flocka Flame (son of Debra Antney) and his firecracker wife Tammy Rivera are back in the A and starting fresh after renewing their vows in Cancun, Mexico. It’s time to put their love to the ultimate test when Waka promises to put his full-throttle rap career on hold to manage Tammy’s breakout R&B stardom. But will he be able to abandon the highs and rushes of being a rapper at the top of his game to fully support his wife? No stranger to the national spotlight, R. Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea “Drea” Kelly and her three children Buku, Kyd, and Jaah move back to Atlanta and are breaking their silence in a buzzing child support battle. As Drea tries to spread her wings and fly, the arrest of R. Kelly is yet another wound inflicted on her from her nightmare of an ex. Drea’s sweet daughter Buku takes a step out on her own, trying to establish herself as a vocal artist in her own right away from the long shadow of her criminal father. In the wake of prison and bankruptcy, rapper Da Brat tries to reform both her image and her finances. She enlists the help of her sister, LisaRaye McCoy to get her life back together. To keep her head in the game, Brat joins forces with legendary hip hop manager Debra Antney to create an Artist Boot Camp designed to help foster and develop young musical talent in Atlanta. The dynamic OG duo choses new artists to audition including a bright new star on the ATL rap scene, Reemarkable. But she has a fine line to walk between honoring her father’s legacy -- the legendary Eazy-E -- and breaking out as an artist in her own right. If Ree plays her cards right, her career will flourish and she’ll become a household name…but can she devote the time needed as for her music career while she juggles a day job, long-term relationship, young son, and custody of her younger brother. When she gets into a confrontation with her new mentors it could derail her blossoming career. Not everyone is welcome in Atlanta this season… the controversial Brandon Barnes (Debra Antney’s godson) is back and his charlatan ways finally catch up to him in an explosive uncovering of the truth. Deb’s niece, Ayana Fite, DJ Hurricane’s daughter, is on a warpath when Brandon tries to break through the family circle in a hurricane of lies. Suspicions begin to brew when Brandon announces that he has been enrolled in the fire academy to train to become a firefighter…but when the family discovers evidence of betrayal, he is publicly unmasked in a family dinner where all hell breaks loose. Without Deb and Waka’s star power shielding him, will Brandon be able to extinguish this massive inferno of deceit?
