Young Money is keeping it all in the family, quite literally. The label’s newest signee is none other than Lil Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter.
In an interview with Rap-Up TV, YMCMB honcho Mack Maine explained, “Wayne’s daughter, Reginae, is actually signed to Young Money now.” He further added about the new generation of Young Money “youngins”, “You can expect big things from Young Money’s youngest signee. “Just expect greatness. She’s Toya [Wright’s] daughter and Wayne’s daughter, so that’s a great combination. She’s a megastar.”
Young Money is also the home to Drake and Nicki Minaj as well as rapper Tyga.
The label is gearing up for a big 2013 with the release of Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II and Drake’s Nothing Was The Same. In the same interview, Mack Maine talked up the new albums. “Wayne being Wayne. Greatness. It’s lyrically insane,” he said. “When he does the I Am Not a Human Being, he actually taps into a different part of his brain where he just talks out of his mind and out of this world. So just expect him being Wayne, but more edgy, saying what he wants, a lot of fun, you know, a lot of high energy.”
Though Drizzy’s album has no set release date, Maine assures us that we’ll get another classic. “He’s on the same pace as he always is to drop a classic. He’s like 10 songs in,” shared Mack. “Knowing him, that’s only like 4 songs, he probably won’t keep 6 of them. He’s a perfectionist though.”
