Damon Dash Gives Angela Simmons a lesson on Street Stress – Growing up Hip Hop #Wetv
On tonight’s opening episode of We Tv’s Growing up Hip Hop -Damon Dash broke it down to Angela Simmons that street stress is being hungry, having to show up somewhere or be threatened to be killed and being poor and doing whatever to survive. Damon was not here for Angela’s complaints about trying to be stressed out behind the scenes of getting ready for her Fashion Show. Damon Dash also reiterated that when you are dodging bullets and trying to survive just to make it to the next day, it may not be considered stress if you are not able to get a new car.
Angela Simmons in a conversation with Lil Romeo (not so Lil Romeo anymore), how she felt attacked by Damon Dash because he was not letting her finish her sentence and he wasn’t trying to empathize with her pangs of building a business behind the scenes. Basically unless Angela Simmons was going to tell Damon that someone was trying to kill her or reminisce about the day she had a gun put in her mouth; I don’t believe that Damon was even taking her seriously.
I find it interesting that Angela discussed this with Romeo but left the conversation for her dad Reverend Run limited to discussing the box with the dirty teddy bear that was left at her door step. I wonder what advice Rev Run would have had for Angela or better yet how many bibles he would have been hitting Damon across the head with for speaking to his princess in like manner in front of her peers.
What are your thoughts? Was Damon Dash too insensitive?
