Published Nov 26, 2009Apparently, the showbiz know-how of rap superstar Lil Wayne runs forwards and backwards in the generations of his family. First, it was revealed that Weezy's mother is in discussions to start a talk show with the mothers of T-Pain and Ne-Yo. Now, one of Wayne's many daughters has formed a tween-friendly pop group with the daughter of rapper T.I. and two other little ladies.
Perhaps in an effort to keep up with the current "girls" trend in band names (Little Girls, Vivian Girls, Girls, etc.), the quartet are called the OMG Girlz. As MTV reports, the group are managed by T.I.'s fiancée, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who spent the '90s in the girl group Xscape.
"I'm definitely using my experience and telling them the things I've been through," Cottle said. "I don't want them to go through things I went through, so I tell them stories so we can avoid going in that direction."
Among the eight songs they've written for their debut album is "Ain't Nobody," where Weezy's daughter, Baby Carter, delivers the following verse: "My name is Reginae / But you can call me Baby Carter / They love me and they hate me cuz I'm Weezy F's daughter / Yeah, I'm a brat and I think it's my world / And I'm stuntin' like my daddy, cuz I'm daddy's little girl / When I walk up in the spot, upgrades the room / And if you standin' next to me, I will upgrade you too."
Lil Wayne has promised to complete a song for the group before he heads to prison next year.
