Production info and concept
Growing up Hip Hop is a new American reality television series that premiered on WE tv on January 7, 2016. It is produced by Datari Turner Productions and Entertainment One Television and executive produced by Suzanne Gladstone, Tara Long, Romeo Miller, Master P, Angela Simmons and Datari Turner. The freshman season is set to contain six episodes.
The documentary series follows the children of hip hop legends as they are growing up and stepping out of their famous parents` shadows. The independence that they strive for has to balance out with the family dynamics. The careers that the children undertake are varied – from music to fashion and acting. The challenges that they face as they tread their own paths are numerous, the chief one being maintaining their identities as the often overprotective parents seek to provide a safety net for them. The romantic and work relationships intertwine within this tight-knit group of hip hop princes and princesses, complicating their lives still further.
Viewer reception and possibilities of renewal
Growing up Hip Hop is probably curious to watch for those into the hip hop culture and lifestyle, and those who follow celebrities` lives and their family issues. Otherwise the celebrity privileges or the celebrity drama spotlighted by the series is hardly relatable or particularly entertaining for rest of the audience. The show holds a rather low 3.8/10 rating on IMDb based on 24 reviews, but the viewership is not as low, with 0.705 million for the January 21, 2016 episode. The future of the series is unclear as of now, but there might be enough interest to keep it going.

Growing Up Hip Hop has been renewed for another season, which means that the children of American hip hip moguls will be back on We TV, attempting to build careers of their own and stepping out of their famous parents` shadow.
