NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA - JULY 07: Master P and Romeo Miller attend 2019 ESSENCE Festival Presented By Coca-Cola at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on July 07, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Master P recently shared a clip that showcased why he and his son, Romeo Miller, quit WE TV’s Growing Up Hip Hop. In a few clips, Master P shared a behind-the-scenes conversation that he and Romeo had with a producer of the reality TV show. Master P, as well as Romeo, was displeased with the way that he was portrayed on television, and he claimed that the producer showed “what you thought the network wanted to see.”

“I’m only showing you this so next time you’re watching this show you can use your real judgment and see how they flip people’s words and change positive moments into negative,” the hip-hop mogul wrote in the caption of his Instagram post. “This is the reason we quit 6 months ago.”

“They edit for drama, we have more important things to worry about than fake producers creating fake love stories. The only way to change this is with ownership,” Master P continued. “I’m putting my trust in God. Never let these devils play with your mind for a little piece of bread. That’s the real reason my son didn’t want to talk on camera anymore because he knew that his words would be altered like they did mine.”

“I’m praying for the Simmon’s family and the other families on the show, so they can see through this Bs too. #Weallwegot #FamilyOverEverything @romeomiller,” Master P wrote, in conclusion.

In the video that Master P shared, he tells the producer, “It was edited. Think about it.” She replies to him, “We showed the raw footage.”

“And I showed you what you should put up and you didn’t. You put up what you thought the network wanted to see,” Master P told her.

“And the network changed it. So, that’s what I’m saying. If we’re gonna do it let’s do right business. It’s positive stuff that people want to see. We’re going to change the game. After today, we’re going to change how people stereotype us,” Master P continued.

“We want to see Angela [Angela Simmons] and Romeo fall in love. That’s what we want to see on TV. Nobody wants to see anybody right. We were rooting for them as a couple,” the producer told Master P.

“There’s no love there,” Master P retorted. “She lost her husband. Her boyfriend. Her baby’s daddy. She lost him. He got murdered. She doesn’t need that right now. Think about it. And you’re setting her up with somebody. She doesn’t need that. She needs to find herself.”

In the second clip, Romeo said that he didn’t like how the producers played with his faith in God. Apparently, Master P and Romeo aren’t the only two cast members to leave the popular reality TV show. Egypt Criss (Pepa of Salt-n-Pepa’s daughter) recently announced on Instagram that she was resigning from the show, as we previously reported.
