Growing Up Hip Hop Season 7: Release Date, Cast And New Details

The lives of children with famous parents have long been a subject of fascination for viewers. From "Run's House," the MTV series that chronicled the life of former rapper-turned-reverend Joseph Simmons — aka Rev. Run — to the smash hit show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," fans can't get enough of the inside details of the lives of the rich and famous. Another show has treated viewers to "behind the scenes" peeks at these luxurious lifestyles in recent years: "Growing Up Hip Hop." 

The show has detailed the home lives of numerous stars in the music industry for six seasons, and fans can't get enough. Season 7 of "Growing Up Hip Hop" promises even more of the good stuff. Here's what we know about the show's coming season release date, cast, and more. With big names like Angela Simmons, Rev Run's daughter; Romeo Miller, Master P's son; and Briana Latrise, Mary J. Blige's stepdaughter among those featured in the past, it's sure to be an interesting season. 

Growing Up Hip Hop Season 7 release date

At the time of this publication, there is still no set release date for the seventh season of "Growing Up Hip Hop." Additionally, there has been no official announcement that the show has been renewed for another season. However, based on past premiere dates, it is safe to assume that the new season will come in the spring should the network decide to move forward with more episodes. Season 6 premiered on May 13, per IMDb, with new episodes coming out on Thursdays on WEtv. The show's full sixth season is available to stream through WEtv online, so Season 7 will likely also be available online following its premiere date.

The odds of "Growing Up Hip Hop" being renewed for a seventh season are pretty high, if audience ratings are any indication. Parrot Analytics reported that the audience demand for "Growing Up Hip Hop" is 1.7 times higher than the average U.S. TV series. Fans have made it clear that they are not finished following the stories laid out in the series and they want more. 

Growing Up Hip Hop Season 7 cast

Season 6 of "Growing Up Hip Hop" included some massive changes in the cast lineup. Most notably, Master P and son Romeo Miller exited the show under some tense circumstances. Master P has spoken out about his reasons for leaving the show, both on Instagram and in a video shared by TMZ. In his post, Master P shared that some of the storylines on the show are pure fiction; notably the fabricated love triangle involving Miller and Angela Simmons. "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 people's words and change positive moments into negative," he wrote on the post. "This is the reason we quit six months ago." 

In the video, Master P speaks with a producer about the deceptive nature of the storyline. "Why do you want to see them fall in love? There's no love there." Master P then spoke directly with TMZ and added, "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."

Aside from Master P and Miller, Egypt Criss also announced on Instagram that she would not be returning. Other than those three, the rest of the cast should be on board. 

New details on Growing Up Hip Hop Season 7

The available details about Season 7 of "Growing Up Hip Hop" released by Off The Fence make the new season sound like it will be quite the drama-filled affair. Following the birth of her new child, Angela Simmons is set to open up about her breakup and public perception of her life as an unmarried mother. Meanwhile, her sister Vanessa Simmons speaks about her desire to get closer with her sister as Angela remains focused on her career and prompts a sibling rivalry. Following the conflict with Master P and Romeo Miller, it would be no surprise if much of a new season focused on Angela's relationships. 

With no official announcement or interviews about a seventh season as of yet, details of what potential new episodes will entail are few and far between. However, with so much interest in continuing the storylines, ongoing drama between cast mates, and rapidly changing lives of the rich and famous, there is no shortage of material. Stay tuned for updates on what's to come with "Growing Up Hip Hop."
