For a number of artists, making music is a family affair, with one generation of artists passing the torch to their musical progeny. Such is the case for Lil Wayne and his daughter, Reginae, who, according to her mother, Toya Carter, has recently been in the studio with her rap phenom father.
Carter revealed the news of the pair’s musical bonding during a recent interview with SOHH, saying that Wayne is a fixture in their daughter’s life and that she supports Reginae’s musical aspirations.
“Yes, Reginae is very talented,” Toya said. “She is very talented, smart and wise beyond her years. And I know Wayne feels the same way, that she’s a star. She been doing music with her dad lately. As long as she’s doing what she has to do in school and making good grades, I’ll support anything else.”
Last year, Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, explained that with the help of her father, Reginae will be the next big thing in music and Hollywood.
“Reginae is just a star,” Cortez said. “She wants to be singer, an actress, she does it all. A great personality. She takes after him. He’s going to nurture whatever she wants to do. He’s supporting her in anything that she wants to do. So, if she says she wants to sing, I know that Wayne is going to do everything in his power and help her fulfill that dream, and I’m going to be right there to nurture it.”
There’s no word yet on when the new music will be released.
