On Growing Up Hip Hop, Angela Simmons (daughter of Rev. Run, niece of Russell Simmons) has been voicing her fear of a stalker. When she mentioned how stressful it’s been, Damon Dash (Roc-A-Fella co-founder, father of Damon “Boogie” Dash) tells her she doesn’t know what stress is. On the episode “Run to Miami,” Angela meets TJ Mizell (son of the late Run DMC DJ Jam Master Jay) at a club before TJ takes off for an event in Miami. Angela isn’t exactly happy when Damon Dash Sr. walks in.
In an effort to ease Angela’s concerns, Damon introduces her and TJ to his OG, who he’s known since he was 17. “That’s the guy I looked up to,” Damon says. “We are family. When you all are in front of me, on my watch, that means you’re also on his watch. So I want all of you to know him.” Damon added, “The people who are stalking, should be afraid of us.” It was a sincere gesture on Damon’s part but Angela doesn’t see it that way. “I need security, I don’t know about just random people.” That’s right, Angela just called Damon Dash’s OG “random people.” Growing Up Hip Hop airs Thursdays at 10pm on WEtv.
