It’s no secret that Lil Scrappy and the overbearing Momma Dee rule Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, but not all fans know that these two have been running the ATL for years now.

To remind his followers of how much he “keeps it real,” Scraps posted a throwback picture with his mom, and boy have they changed!

#tbt me an my moms even tho u slick cray I love u mom u always kept it real an str8t wit no chaser @tharealmommadee,” he Instagrammed along with the epic pic.

Scrappy has definitely stepped up his style in recent years, and don’t get us started on Momma Dee’s jean zip-up top. Was she an backup dancer for Destiny’s Child or something?

Personally we love their close relationship, even though Momma Dee sometimes oversteps her boundaries.

Do you think Lil Scrappy should listen to his mom more or should she back off? Weigh in below!
