Growing Up Hip Hop Season 7 - Here's What We Can Tell Fans So Far

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to grow up with a famous parent? Well, wonder no more, because "Growing Up Hip Hop" has been giving us a glimpse into the lives of hip-hop stars and their children for six seasons. Season 6 just finished airing, with the last eight episodes being a spin-off called "Brat Loves Judy," focusing on famed rapper Da Brat and her fiancé, Jesseca "Judy" Dupart. 

According to a press release, Season 6 added two new parent cast members: producer Stevie J, along with his children Savannah and Stevie Jr., and Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell alongside his daughter, Cree (via TV Series Finale). Season 6 also featured returning cast members like Angela Simmons, the daughter of Run-DMC's Rev Run, Eric "Lil Eazy-E" Wright Jr., the son of the late Eazy-E, and Egypt Criss, who happens to be a double descendent from hip-hop royalty: her mother is Pepa of Salt-N-Pepa, and her father is Treach of Naughty By Nature.

With Season 6 now in the past, fans are already clamoring for Season 7. Here's everything we know about it so far.

When does Growing Up Hip Hop Season 7 come out?

As of now, there is no set release date for Season 7 of "Growing Up Hip Hop." This is understandable, since the last episode of Season 6 — an episode of "Brat Loves Judy" — aired not too long ago, per IMDb. Season 6 premiered on Thursday, May 13, per TV Series Finale. According to IMDb, Season 5 also aired on Thursdays, and all seasons have aired on WEtv. Season 6 appears to be available to stream in its entirety on for free, with no cable subscription required. All eight episodes of "Brat Loves Judy" appear available for free as well, though it has its own page on It's likely that Season 7 would air on Thursdays and be available online as well.

Until 2014 — two years before "Growing Up Hip Hop" premiered — WEtv was a Lifetime-esque network targeting women as its core audience, Deadline reported. In fact, "WE" stood for "Women's Entertainment." Per the outlet, the network's goal with the rebranding was to continue being "a leading destination for women on television and online," but to put more emphasis on the word, "we." Shows like "Braxton Family Values" and its spin-off "Tamar & Vince" further pushed the network into a direction more akin to Bravo, with celebrity-focused reality programming.

Is everyone coming back to Growing Up Hip Hop?

As far as we know, the whole cast of "Growing Up Hip Hop" will be returning for Season 7 — aside from Egypt Criss, who announced her departure in an Instagram post in 2020. Season 6 had a massive cast shake-up following the departures of Master P and his son Romeo Miller, especially considering that they did not leave amicably.

By this point, the public more or less knows that reality TV is more TV than it is reality. Master P shared a video to his Instagram in May 2020, exposing the fabricated storylines on the show and expressing his distaste for the practice. "I'm only showing you this so next time you're watching this show you can use your real judgement and see how they flip peoples words and change positive moments into negative," he wrote. "This is the reason we quit 6 months ago." 

Apparently, producers wanted to depict a love triangle between Romeo and Angela Simmons, and Master P was not having it. In the video, he says to a producer, "Why do you want to see them fall in love? There's no love there." Master P further told TMZ, "These companies only care about ratings and creating negative edits ... that have been destroying families for years on TV." He added that Romeo no longer wanted to do one-on-one interviews with the camera "because he knew that his words would be altered."

Are any more spin-offs coming?

"Growing Up Hip Hop" is doing some growing of its own as it expands into several different spin-offs. First was "Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta," featuring descendants of hip-hop royalty down in the Peach State. Like its mother show, it includes pretty recognizable names, like Bow Wow, Da Brat, and Jermaine Dupree, per IMDb. Then, New York got the "Growing Up Hip Hop" treatment, featuring rap legends Ja Rule and Fat Joe with their children alongside Young Dirty Bastard, son of the late Wu-Tang legend Ol' Dirty Bastard, and Da'Zyna, daughter of the one and only Flavor Flav, per WEtv.

In 2017, The Jasmine Brand reported that a Miami spin-off of "Growing Up Hip Hop" was in the works, with the rumored cast including one of Diddy's sons, an unidentified DJ Khaled artist, Fat Joe's son, Ryan Cartagena — who appeared on "Growing Up Hip Hop: New York" — and one of Uncle Luke's daughters. This was likely Cree, who is now on the main series. It's unclear why the spin-off never came to fruition. An inside source told The Jasmine Brand, "Miami has always had a competitive music scene. They have some of the top producer's (sic) in the game. It's just the perfect scene and so many legends came out of Miami." Time will tell if we'll see a reimagined "Growing Up Hip Hop: Miami" or a new city featured in the future.
