Cash Money Records bosses Birdman and Lil Wayne‘s daughters, Bria Williams and Reginae Carter, recently talked about having mega rap stars as their fathers and what artists they’re listening to these days.
While Reginae dished out the pros of having Weezy F. Baby as her pops, Bria talked about being blown away by Baby’s on-stage presence.
What is it like to have a hip-hop star for a dad? RC: There are some major advantages. Just the fact that you can go to awards shows and meet people in the industry that you look up to. Red carpets are so fun! BW: It’s cool, because I see my dad on stage performing, and it’s like, “Wow, that’s my dad.” RC: I am a big, huge fan of Rihanna and I met her a couple of weeks ago at her concert, and then she followed me on Instagram! She’s so cool. I love her. (Teen Vogue)
They also revealed what hip-hop and R&B artists they are rocking out to these days.
What music do you like listening to? BW: I like Rihanna, Drake, Chris Brown, I like…there are so many things I like! RC: I love pop, I love rap. I like some Christian music. And hip-hop! I don’t discriminate with music. (Teen Vogue)
The teenage daughters are preparing for the release of their upcoming Paparazzi Princess book.
Now, instead of relying on Instagram and Twitter as most of their peers do, their story is told in their new novel “Paparazzi Princess” through the characters of Kyla Jones and Promise Walker. On their journey to becoming their own women, the novel’s main characters face their parent’s high expectations, the pitfalls of being “unintentionally famous,” and, most crucially, the trials and tribulations of high school, homework, crushes, and friendship that everyone goes through. A collaboration with author Karyn Langhorne Folan, it’s bound to be a page-turner for teens and young adults everywhere. (Talking With Tami)
Earlier this year, Wayne confirmed his daughter is signed to Young Money.
“Yup,” Wayne said in an interview when asked if his daughter is really signed to Young Money. “I’d expect my daughter to be the bigger person in that situation — I can’t change nobody’s personal opinion. I can’t change nobody’s personal view. I can just keep doing what I do and keep putting food on the table for my family and that’s what I’m going to do no matter what.” (99 Jamz)
