‘Growing Up Hip Hop’ Star Briana Latrise Calls out Boogie Dash

“Growing Up Hip Hop” star Briana Latrise’s fallout with Egypt Criss has been a very nasty one. After Briana made it clear that she’s just not here for Sam, Egypt began to feel some type of way. And when things went left at the engagement party, Egypt decided she had enough. She was done with the friendship.

So she exchanged words with Briana at Lil Twist’s party.

She ended up assaulting Briana.

At this point, it looks as if Briana and Egypt will never be on good terms again. Interestingly enough, Egypt and Sam may not the only people Briana is at odds with. In fact, she called out Boogie Dash recently.

    Briana sue Eygpt, Pepa and Treach. Let Eygpt tell it,”She is Hip Hop Royalty-she admitted to hitting Briana twice. Briana get paid.Let’s see if Pepa and Treach really got coins or on the show for a check. I personally think it’s a smoke screen Pepa and Treach using thier child for a check if so really pathetic.

      They arguing back and forth they both stand up Brianna puts her hands all in Egypt face and then tells her friend to hold my rings and started taking her rings off and y’all on here acting like she wasn’t about to fight. Man stop with the nonsense

        Get real, Sam told the story half as backwards. Him & Egypt went there to fight. Why did they go to the pajama party in swear suits anyway. (Too throw down).
        So, in all actuality they were looking for trouble. Remember what goes around comes back around.

          Many times, as in this case, looking for revenge is different than looking for trouble.

          Briana got exactly what she deserved. BTW where is her child?

          Egypt didn’t whoop sh-t. She hit Briana and Briana was tackled by security before she could hit back. The f-ck are you talking about? Y’all are just as delusional as Egypt.

She is a loyal friend she ride hard and people just can’t take her honesty… And what fight Egypt hit Bre when she toss her rings so her face was kinda turning back around then security grab her… That’s no fight PERIOD. One,…or two hits she claim still didn’t do nothing to her but that isn’t a fight

So tell me this if someone didn’t like her “Woman”, would she break up with her. Brianna go find ur own business n leave Egypt n Sam alone. U r angry, Unhappy n need attention. By gurl

            I guess you believe in the thug life as well because the law doesn’t agree with the foolishness you typed. You can’t put your hands on someone because you don’t like how they act or what they said. Egypt is lucky she didn’t get a mugshot. She’s a little thug now.

        Briana didn’t put her hands in Egypt’s face. Egypt came there to fight and knew security would protect her. She wanted a buzz worthy moment on the show but it backfired because most of the fans have been dragging her for it. And that’s the real reason she quit. Most people won’t respect someone bragging about hitting someone when they knew the other person wasn’t allowed to hit back. She’s wack.

          I can see you buy into Egypt and Sam’s lies and delusions. Egypt was big and bad when security protected her. In real life, production was so scared Briana would beat Egypt’s a-s off of the show that they lied and told Briana Egypt was out of town when Briana was ready to run up without the cameras. Production knows the truth. Egypt ain’t a fighter. She’s only Mike Tyson when security won’t allow her to get hit back. Meanwhile, Briana can actually fight. And was doing so while Egypt was being pampered by nannies.

    I don’t know either of you to know what’s really going going on but as far as the show is concerned Boogie try to side where ever he feels safe at. Twist may come for his neck. Rome isn’t loyal. Master P worried about the wrong stuff instead of minding the business that pays him. Now Briana Lil E had to do something to you for you to say he looked dry for throwing that drink on him. You think people are going to look at you differently after that: I don’t think so.

    • Robert

      May 25, 2020 at 3:35 pm

      Good post, Tiffani.

      And speaking of Lil Twist, looks like a lil tussle with JoJo Simmons is brewing on the horizon. We’ll have to see if Lil Twist sicks his dogs on JoJo who may not realize that’s how Lil Twist operates. JoJo not really a troublemaker but he can be quite mouthy, lol, and sometimes Lil Twist takes himself just a bit too seriously but to his credit he has earned some respect in the world of hip hop whereas JoJo had everything handed to him. But Rev Run may be hiring more dogs to look after JoJo after this tussle with Twist or those GUHH previews could just be overhyping things but I do seem to remember Lil Twist issuing some cryptic warnings as he tends to like to do.

      For as Romeo and P are concern they loyalty is with each other family first that’s something that this generation dont understand and P was and or still is the executive producer so that is his business and that’s his son they trying to clown so I have mad respect for them that they can walk away from the bullsh-t

            Nope, those are just vanity titles. It’s cool if you buy into the fake image the Millers put out though but please believe, you should pay attention to the fact that they are so called Executive Producers but are complaining about how they are portrayed on the show they are executive producers of. Use your common sense. They aren’t the “businessmen” you think they are.

    I agree with Marvin… Why is everybody acting like Brianna is not aggressive!!!!! She stood up told someone to talk her rings and she wasn’t going to hit no one, right. So that girl is supposed to just sit there ? All of you are crazy . Who is Brianna, she always have a problem with someone? She’s in everybody’s business but have none of her own, she disrespected almost everyone on the show, she didn’t expect to get got, why wasn’t she prepared, She talks to much and if Egypt gets hurt gets hurt by Sam she’ll survive d-mn, she is just 21,Brianna acts like she 21 now

    • Robert

      May 25, 2020 at 12:47 pm

      That’s right, Cindy.

      Briana literally wants to destroy anyone she can’t manipulate or control.

      Briana is a bitter backstabbing alcoholic with a disturbing desire/need/penchant for fake virtue signaling. Like telling Dame that he could count on her to be a positive influence on Boogie’s sobriety even as she’s clandestinely showing up at Dame’s place completely hammered thinking he’s too stupid to notice or realize it’s also another major red flag that she just wrecked her car, oopsie. That entire hot mess situation was nothing more than craven virtue signaling from a morally bankrupt bitter meddling frienemy bully who wants attention.

      The fact that super sweet Egypt’s first fight in her entire life was with that insufferable meddling bully Briana kinda says all you need to know about Briana Latrise.

      With friends like Briana Latrise who needs enemies?

            If you have to lie on Briana to make Sam, Egypt, and Pepa look better, you’ve already lost. Briana takes care of her son and he lives with her. Sam is a deadbeat father who doesn’t even pay child support if he can’t get it from Egypt. Briana isn’t on drugs, which is why she can see the train wreck Sam is so clearly.

    • Fee

      May 27, 2020 at 7:09 am

      If you really want to hurt someone, you keep your rings on. Not take them off. Briana put two and two together and realized Egypt came there to fight. She wanted her rings off just in case Egypt hit her, and Egypt did just that like the street thug she is. There’s no law that supports hitting someone because you don’t like how they act. There has never been violence on the show until now. If Briana would have hauled off and hit Egypt or Sam, you people would be outraged. But it’s okay for Egypt to be a violent street thug? Oh, the hypocrisy. Egypt should be arrested. I’m sure Sam can school her on the street life and jail since he brags about his street life on IG all the time.

You can support violent thugs all you want, but if you go out here in real life and pull what Egypt did on this show, I guarantee you’ll be arrested and charged. Briana would not be. Egypt was the aggressor and the only one who put hands on anyone that day. She should be arrested. Her trashy behavior is nothing to defend in my opinion. If she’s not smart enough to use her words to express herself, then she should get off this show like I see she has now. And I say good riddance!

    One thing Romeo and Briana both have in common ….. zero self awareness

    And sad/disturbing to see Romeo’s total denial about all the chaos and hurt feelings he so frequently leaves in his sizeable self-absorbed wake

    @Boogie oh that’s not real talk Boogie you’re just playing for the cameras (wrong)

    @TheGang oh they’ll never make it in life with such thin skin but if they laugh at my ICDC college thingy I’ll never talk to them again (derp)

      Briana Latrise did ruin that engagement party by being drunk, irrational and absolutely belligerent (story of her life).

      Then she gonna stick a knife in Boogie’s back because he allowed someone to state the obvious while in his presence.

      God forbid he reveals his darkest secret BEFORE asking for Egypt’s hand in marriage.

      And if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll agree that the only four people actually in a position to accurately rate the success of the engagement party are Egypt, Sam, Pep and Treach and guess who they say ruined the party (go ahead, take your time with this one).

      Briana was drunk and belligerent and that tragic weave/wig she had on was a Class A Misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison.

        May 26, 2020 at 2:45 pm

        Sam already said so himself that he told Egypt about sleeping with the trans well before the engagement party. So there was no need to make a moment out of it at the engagement party. He ruined the engagement party by making it all about who he slept with. I don’t care if Egypt’s problematic parents don’t see it that way. Their failure at marriage and parenting speaks for itself. I don’t know what it is about you, but you have a hard time understanding that people don’t have to see things the way you do. You’re condescending as well, and I’m not sure why. It’s really not that deep. All opinions are allowed and valid on here.

    Sam is a con artist. Glad he’s off the show.

      Me too. I’m glad Egypt left as well. But I do hope we finally get to see more from Tyran. I hate that he’s been pushed to the background for Egypt and Sam. Tyran is handsome with a good head on his shoulders. He should get way more screen time than he gets.

    Egypt’s parents raised some great kids.

    And clearly Pep is a better mom than Briana and Egypt is a better daughter than Briana.

    And you say “no need” as if the party had to be a certain way just for you.

    Obviously it was important to Sam to speak his truth to Egypt and her parents.

    It’s so comical the uber high standard that haters try to impose on Sam and Egypt’s every move but not to anyone else like that alcoholic backstabber Briana Latrise and to a lesser extent the conniving kidnapper Tee Tee.

    But at the end of the day, just try to imagine how much more hatred for Pep and Egypt that team Briana would be spewing at them if Egypt had been just a little bit more like Briana while growing up …. would be absolutely mind boggling.

      That last comment of mine that opens with “Egypt’s parents raised some great kids.” ….. that comment was for Lisa.

      Tyran already said Pepa didn’t raise him. She was too busy trying to be a rap star and she forgets him now because Egypt is the child she prefers. Tyran turned out great because Pepa didn’t raise him. Egypt is dating a man that brags about gang life on IG and she hits people on TV. She has no career because she’s busy running up behind her street boyfriend. If you think that’s excellent parenting, your standards are low.

      And what are you even talking about? Sam said that Egypt, Pepa, and Treach already knew he slept with the trans woman. You have to love dysfunction if you think Sam’s actions didn’t mess up that engagement party. The only sane people in Egypt’s family are Tee Tee and Tyran. Neither one of them was raised by Pepa thankfully.

    Brian has been looking for a place to get in. She was a nobody her father was married to Mary J Blige and that how she got on the show. She will do whatever to find a place. And go through anyone.

      Everybody is a somebody. She got on the show because the producers wanted her there because she’s interesting. This is why she has more followers than some of the so-called people you think deserve to be there more than she does. The only person who will do anything to find a place and go through anyone is Sam.
