Brandon Barnes Speaks On His Background & His Mom Debra Antney

After first dishing to Bossip on that tense fight with Reginae, Brandon Barnes of “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” gave us the run-down on his background and his family.
The artist developer whose worked with Kash Doll, Jhonni Blaze and Zonnique spoke on his relationship with his tough as nails mom Debra Antney who he calls “Debbie” when he needs advice.

Unbeknownst to many, Ms. Deb is actually his godmother who raised him and helped him grow into the person you see on TV.
Brandon also took time to dispel rumors that he’s aggressive.

“People mistake my passion for aggression,” said Brandon. “As an artist developer as a vocal coach, as a an acting coach, whatever it is that I’m doing as a form of development, I have to sit down and have a conversation with you before I can work with you.”

“That conversation is going to tell me several things, one of those things being how my appraoch needs to be with you. A lot of people don’t full-blown understand that.”

Watch Brandon’s interview with Bossip above.

“Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” airs Thursdays at 9:00 on WE tv.
