Raised by hip hop legends, Angela Simmons, Romeo Miller, Damon "Boogie" Dash, Kristinia DeBarge, TJ Mizell and Egypt Criss work hard to gain independence and step out of their famous parents' shadows. With their love and work lives intertwined, each member of this this tight-knit group is facing a surprising challenge that will test their loyalties within the group and even relationships with their own mothers and fathers.
The season begins as this tight-knit group of twenty something's gear up for a week of high profile parties and events. While together in New York City they attend the opening of "Boogie's" art gallery, but with the seasoned hip hop legends in attendance, casual conversation turns into an intense old school lesson. TJ celebrates his 24th birthday with an exclusive party, but Angela is forced to leave suddenly when a suspicious fan in the crowd gets a little too close for comfort. Kristinia and TJ are confirmed to perform at the debut showcase of Angela's new faux fur fashion line; but when personal issues involving Kristinia's estranged father arise, will it ruin the evening?
