Exclusive: Zonnique Discusses Living In The Shadow of Her Famous Parents & Her Relationship With Damian Swann

Despite her famous family, Niq Niq is as down to earth as they come.


Just as The Family Hustle comes to an end, Zonnique Pullins will be making a splash on another reality show, WeTV’s Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta. Niq Niq has spent six seasons growing up in front of the camera, but she explains, on Growing Up Hip Hop, the spotlight will solely be on her and not the rest of her family for once. She adds that it’s difficult to want to be a singer as the child of two incredibly successful musicians “it can just be hard to become your own name,” she says. “People see you and [they’re] like ’Oh hey, T.I. and Tiny’s daughter!'”

As for her relationship with athlete Damian Swann, she says she hesitated to put it on The Family Hustle (and he does not appear on Growing Up Hip Hop) because she explains, “I don’t like how attached people get to your relationship. If something happens in your relationship, they wanna know what happened, they wanna bring your old boo up… People just get too attached.” Sounds like she’s learned a lot from the experiences of her parents, to be honest.
