Fans of “Growing Up Hip Hop” have been dragging Sam on social media ever since he’s been on the show. And apparently, he’s had enough of it.

Recently on Instagram, Sam posted his children and noted that he takes care of his children, contrary to his critics. However, a follower was skeptical.

They initially commented that he didn’t spend his own money on his children. Sam responded that he makes $2500 an episode.

          It’s not a misprint. Sam had an entire conversation with that person about it. He makes $2500 per episode.

        I agree with every word that you’re saying. Because if she gets sick. Can he take care of her pay the bills? No, he cannot she will have to rely on her parents. So why would you want that type of man for your daughter?

            Sam is an idiot and a bum, and I don’t know how Pepa and Treach is okay with this relationship. They should want more for their daughter. I’m wondering what’s wrong with them. This whole situation isn’t sad.

          They all just stuoid! Papa think she is Liz Taylor or somebody, Trech have a dream that he with the mafia & Egypt don’t know who she is… A 12 year old or a street hoe! Sam gone break them & ain’t gone feel sh-t about it either! Wake up dummies!

          And the hell is it that he got a brand new car off a Pepa but her son is driving an 12 year old car.. When is she going to stop disrespecting her son …who’s one of the best people on the show?

      Sam isn’t a main cast member. So he won’t make a lot in comparison to everyone else.

      It depends on how many episodes this season will have honestly.

      The only I have to say is you people don’t live with em so you don’t know sh-t. Remember this is a so called reality show aka scripted tv. I mean now tee tee and the Beast Brianna are friends oh I love you, no I love you more and tees fake a-s boyfriend come on people it’s a show. But here’s the real reality is her parents Pepa an OG and Treach do you think seriously that he would really let a clown come in a take advantage of his baby girl. Come on the cat is from my hood Brick City NJ we don’t play around here on the east coast.

    Think yr thirsty a-s needs to step up on yr own, n not on a 21yr old that is clueless to a real relationship. Sam past tells you that he is a selfish, self centered, gold digging punk that will get caught up in his games. N Pepa needs to stop being such a freind n be a mother. Hasn’t she learned my her past mistakes? Stay in yr lane OG

    This isn’t enough money to support a wife or kids. I hope he has more income streams.

  5. Meep

    February 9, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    The way I feel about it is this- if a man is working hard at a job that makes him around $50,000 a year which is around what Sam is claiming to make from the show, that is perfectly ok and should not be made fun of. To make fun of or look down on a lower class man is called classism. However, Sam is a shadeball. He very clearly masterminded this plan to get Egypt because of who her mom and dad are. He knew who she was. They didn’t randomly meet at the gym. The guy has proven to be shady and untrustworthy in the past. The fact that Pep has Treach think they can actually turn him into a decent guy with some help and love is delusional. You can’t change a person’s core. And Sam’s core is swindler. He’s swindling this entire family. I thought Treach would be smarter than that. Pep clearly lives on another planet, if you catch my drift, therefore I don’t expect much sense out of her.

      The problem is he’s probably not making $50,000 plus from the show. The current season appears to be just 13 episodes. So he’s actually making $32,500 for the season if that number is correct. That’s not a lot of money. But if you’re right and he’s making $50,000 plus for the season, clearly it’s not enough because Pepa bought him a car and he went broke buying Egypt a ring from a pawn shop.

      • Tea

        February 9, 2020 at 2:05 pm

        I wonder how many episodes this season will actually be. Especially since it’s two spin-offs now and Braxton Family Values usually comes back in March. WE tv will also sometimes split one season into two parts so it’s always confusing.

      • Dale Browne

        February 9, 2020 at 3:35 pm

        Let’s be realistic, whether he makes $32,500 or $50,000 a year doesn’t mean he takes care of his children.

    February 9, 2020 at 1:40 pm

    Sam can take care of his kids because he’s living off of Egypt and Pepa,to me he’s a clown,a court jester that needs to grow up and quit taking advantage of someone with a goof heart.I agree with Tee tee he’s a freeloader and a user.

    Why is he explaining himself to strangers? I’m not about to tell a stranger how much money I make. Think what you want about me.

  8. Vickie

    February 9, 2020 at 2:10 pm

    I think a lot of y’all are used to hearing reality stars make six figures and even millions so this sounds like a small amount of money to y’all.

      Yeah everybody ain’t making that Bravo money.

  9. Guest

    Hmm. If I’m not mistaken, there’s only about 6-9 episodes in a series. That means he’s making between $17,500-$22,500. I don’t know if he has to pay taxes on that income. However, IMO that’s not much money when you factor in the cost of living and his other responsibilities to his children. I hope his music career is providing him another source of income.

    • Patricia Hudson

      There’s approximately 12-13 episodes a season and he’s not in ALL of them. And WE doesn’t pay Bravo money for their 2nd rate celebrities,, like Sam and Tee Tee and etc.

  10. Guest

    February 9, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    It looks like there are 13 episodes so, that’s $32,500. That’s not bad for doing a reality show. Some people make less than that working a 9-5 job. Although, there are probably other shows that make more money.

    It’s ridiculous how people on these sites enjoy bashing, criticizing others as though your life is perfect. SMH. I assume all the negative comments about this young man are from people who are financially wealthy, successful and have all your s____ together.

    I don’t know how many episodes the season is but when I got my first job, it paid peanuts. I had to work hard to get to where I am now. I’m grateful for God’s blessings but the moral of the story is never get complacent. The sky truly is the limit. If Sam was smart, he’d use this platform to create multiple successful businesses and income streams. You have to take advantage of large platforms like these.

    I’m just trying to figure out why it matters, as none of us are putting in, or receiving anything where Sam is concerned. If he does or doesn’t take care of his kids or if he does or doesn’t make a certain amount of money does it even matter? If Peppa and Egypt are taken care of him, are they complaining? Tee Tee shouldn’t care, and definitely not Brianna, cause she don’t even matter. I don’t understand why she’s even on the show. What Hip Hop family is she a part of? And please don’t say Mary J. She’s divorced now. Brianna AIN’T NOBODY.

      It matters cuz he is on the show. He can choose to get a 9 to 5 instead of being an opportunist. The show is geared towards fans and fan feed back. Te te is family and does have a say. Pep brought her into their situation to “watch” over Egypt. Brianna is being supportive and not in a bad way . My friends have their friend’s back.

    Well they are obviously blind and too trusting of that Sam lil boy. Hes a child mentally. But she will find out soon what’s going on. I cant wait to see this relationship crumble. Every relationship seems so good at first.
    And her mother is such a terrible mother! She really thinks shes a 20- something. She is a buddy not a mother.

    Sam is a Gold Digger I pray it comes out soon. Sammy Davis Jr. Could see that… IJS… He is playing the hell out of Pepper and Egypt. But I am sorry Daddy and big brother not to be played with. It going to be a mis understanding. Wasn’t he supposed be be driving UBer that’s was why Pepper purchased him a new car. Pepper is showing her daughter how to be a Sugar Momma…

      WTF,,, Sammy Davis Jr.? He wasn’t BLIND,, he’s DEAD! so I guess he couldn’t see it…smh. WTF is a “Pepper” BCUZ she was in a group called “Salt and? It doesn’t mean it’s Pepper! It’s PEPA

    First of all Pepa needs to grow the f***up and be a mother, Teach her daughter how to be a strong black independent woman,as well as to do better than she had done in her own lifetime, Egypts no man should be good enough for his baby girl exspecially a dead beat scum bag like Sam and that’s what’s being a good daddy trench looking out for all them snakes in the grass out to use your daughter that’s what is having her best interests at heart ❤️ not being her BFF

    Sam, keep your business about money to yourself, now everyone has a right to express their opinions because you opened the door for them. That was a dumba-s move on your part. You have nothing to prove to us, however when you invite us into your business you get what you get. And as far as Pep & Treach are concerned, their parenting leaves much to be desired. My mom was my mother first and my friend second. As I matured in life and relationships that is when she became my friend. And at this stage in my life, I need Mom, not another damn friend.

    This young man doesn’t have much money his father has been helping him financially that’s how is was able to do his music which I think is horrible but just my opinion but he knew who she was when he met her she thinks she in love with this boy because her mom not being a good mom right now why would you buy sam a car if he suppose to be working so you paying him to be with your daughter I hope he does hurt your child to bad plus she not ready to be instant mom

      Papa she act more like a Mother instead of a friend; hanging out with her daughter’s friends.She acts like she’s spaced out or high. Always with a drink in hand. If Sam was going to drive Uber she didn’t have to buy him a car. I have never seen Sam in 1 episode drive for Uber. There are a lot of celebrities who date & marry regular people, who work normal jobs. Sam is cocky, aggressive and pushy. Seems like he’s quickly inserting himself into their family.

    Pepa and treach just want their daughter to be happy. She loves him so they love him but I think he is trying to take egpt’s spot light. Question for Pepa why do you allow this, Pepa needs to grow up and stop acting young. Your daughter is very mature and laid back and you act like a friend instead of being her mom.Put the glass down and be a mother.Your daughter deserves a better man than that joker(Sam).

    Wow, he don’t even get “THE STANDARD” per epi? 😂😂😂😂 D-mn Karma is a MoFo!
    In 2010 or 2011, Emily B (OG LHHNY S1&2) did a radio interview w/ Charlamagne Da God on Philly’s Power 99fm morning show. He asked her was she getting pd the “STANDARD” 1st time reality show salary? Which was $7,500 at the time? She replied, “ HELL NO, I make more than now. That’s a big pay-cut for me!” Her & Chrissy shared a manager that negotiated their contract terms.
    Is Sam so thirsty for fame he’s willing to be under-paid? The only bills I see he has is his child support. His clueless mama-in-law pays for everything else. She even bought this fool a brand new car to Uber in. Meanwhile her 1st born child is riding around in a hand-me-down 2001 used car his cuzn / sister TeeTee, gave him.
    Sam is an opportunist. It was NOT by chance that he met Egypt in a gym. He said on tv that he worked for the woman who supplied hair weave to Pepa’s hairstylist. He seen those invoices w/ Pep’s name & type of pymt on them. He low-key stalked Egypts’s social media to “BY CHANCE” run into her. He’s pursuing Egypt while in a relationship w/ his 2nd BM.
    I’m not surprised Egypt picked Sam though. He’s just like her Father. Every girl’s 1st love is her Daddy & every man she attracts & is attracted to will be like him. Whether she knows him or not.
    This is what Pepa & Treach showed their daughter. Sure Treach is a fantastic dad, but he was a nightmare of a husband.
    If Sam can speak to TeeTee, Briana & most likely his BMs w/ disrespect, he will do the same to Egypt. How is her mother NOT seeing these red flags? Many txs a woman can’t see them for herself, but will spot it immediately when it comes to her child.
    I’m just waiting for the day when Sam’s disrespect goes too far when talking to TeeTee & Tyran digs in that azz like he’s in a MMA Match! Tyran already don’t like or trust Sam. He’s just waiting for that day when Sam can no longer hide him true self. I see right thru Sam. After he & Egypt is married her parents won’t have the final say anymore. He wants to be the star. He wants the fame. He wants the hit records & headlining tours while Egypt’s home preggers & taking care of the kids. He has said exactly this on camera! Sam is dangerous!
