So far, just four episodes have aired, the most recent being Loyalty Is Dead, on 3 June.

Cree is the daughter of Uncle Luke, who was the lead rapper of 2 Live Crew, a hip hop group from Miami, Florida that peaked commercially in the 1980s and 1990s.

Cree operates two businesses

Besides being the newest member of Growing Up Hip Hop LA, Cree Campbell helms two enterprises, Inspire Agency and Inspire Body Recovery.

She describes the first as an “experiential marketing firm” that cultivates “branded moments” and corporate events.

The second is a “luxury post-op concierge service”. Inspiration for its flagship offering, “Doll Packages”, comes from “seeing the downside of not being healthy”.

She also has a swim line

Before season 6 of Growing Up Hip Hop, Cree told Pretty Women Hustle Online that she has some “pretty cool new stuff in the works” for C.Swim, a line of swimwear.

She also has a brand called Faith in Motion33, or FIM33 for short, which she developed with her mother, although Open Corporates currently lists Faith in Motion 33 LLC as “inactive“.

 

Who are Cree Campbell’s parents?

Growing Up Hip Hop follows the lives of the children of hip hop legends. As such, who Cree Campbell’s parents are is significant.

Her father is Luther Campbell, aka Uncle Luke, of The 2 Live Crew.

The group, which released its last records in 2016, comprised four members including Uncle Luke, the others being Fresh Kid Ice, Mr. Mixx and Brother Marquis.

Her stepfather is Ted Lucas, who founded Slip-N-Slide Records in 1994.

The label has signed numerous Florida rappers, including Rick Ross, Plies and Trina.

How have Cree’s parents responded to her being on the show?

In a YouTube interview with Akisha Lockhart (watch below), Cree described her dads, Luke and Ted, as “two totally different people”.

“Ted is very quiet, very reserved … Then you have Luke, who is like, total opposite.”

Luke is apparently open to the idea of getting in front of the camera alongside Cree, whereas Ted, while encouraging her to “speak your truth”, is happy to take a backseat as far as the production goes.

Growing Up Hip Hop is available to watch at 9pm ET on Thursdays, on WE tv.
