PICS & VIDEO: INSIDE Reginae Carter’s 13th Birthday Cinderella Bash With Lil Wayne, Toya, & More

It was a birthday fit for a princess, especially since that’s what Toya calls her daughter ReginaeLil Wayne‘s oldest daughter had her big Cinderella birthday party last night in Atlanta at the private Callanwolde Mansion to celebrate turning 13. 

 

We’ve got exclusive pics of Reginae, her dad Weezy, her stepdad Memphitz, Tiny, T.I., their kids, and more all partying it up inside.  Plus exclusive video of the horse & carriage arrival and more….

Reginae donned a very girly purple and pink corseted sparkling ball gown for her big occasion that welcomed her into the teenaged world (which she officially enters on the 11/29).  She tweeted about the bash, "Had soo much fun at my party!!"  And we could tell.

TheYBF.com was on the scene of the princess’ fete as she got plenty of love from her fam and friends:

Her father Dwyane "Lil Wayne" Carter was on daddy duty as her escort and donned his remixed tux and Phantom of the Opera style mask for the formal occasion.  Her stepdad Memphitz and mom Toya also made it a black tie affair. 

Toya gushed about it afterwards saying, "Had fun at @reginae_carter1 bday party!! It was niiiicccceeeee! That candy room is the devil!!! Ahahahha."

Awww.  Reginae seemed a bit down a few days ago tweeting that it seemed none of her fam was coming to her party as some weren’t able to make it.  But she was uber happy to see her daddy.

Ha.

Toya looked gorgeous as usual and got escorted by her brother Dwyane III who was dressed as a knight.

Flawless hair and makeup as usual. 

Reginae is becoming more and more Toya’s exact mini-me replica…

 

Wayne brought his girlfriend along (next to him) to the party.  Interesting.

And Reginae got to dance with her daddy.

Tiny and T.I. brought all their kids including TIP’s new protege up-and-coming rapper Domani (in red):

Cute!  The OMG Girlz were there too.
 

"RHOA" star Kim Zolciak was there with her daughters Brielle and Ariana.

And the kids snapped some pics with Weezy.

Phaedra made her "Housewife" presence known as well with her son Ayden and hubby Apollo.

Memphitz had his daughter Mikkya there for the party too.

Baby brought his daughter Bria to the party.  She just celebrated her big 13th bash earlier this year.

Reginae’s horse and carriage arrival–with the little Knight.

And partygoers were welcomed by a life-sized cut-out of Reginae.

As for the party atmosphere:


Cute and everything a little girl would want.  Fab.

Lil Wayne Launches Young Money Prepaid Discover Card

It looks like Lil Wayne is getting in the credit card business. The Young Money CEO has teamed up with ACCENT InterMedia to establish the Young Money Prepaid Discover card. The plastic is designed for people who are seeking out alternative ways of banking and requires no credit check.

The card was developed by Horace Madison, founder of Madison Strategic Integration and business manager for Lil Wayne and Young Money, along with credit specialist Buddy Smith. “We’re excited about giving people who may not have access to traditional banking accounts the convenience of plastic,” Madison said in a statement. “Wayne wants to keep it simple and sleek, but load it with benefits that are meaningful to Young Money cardholders.”

The Young Money prepaid card boasts six fee types, including a $ 6.95 card purchase fee (with $ 3.95 monthly maintenance fee thereafter), as well as ATM withdrawal fees, lost/stolen card fee, statement fee and a reload fee.

Whew, that’s a lot of fees! While we are all Young Money fans here, we have to stress that fandom and finance don’t mix. So educate yourself before you purchase this card or any other celebrity prepaid card — and make sure you read the fine print.

If you are interested in the Young Money Prepaid Card program, then go to youngmoneycards.com. A portion of the proceeds from every card sold will benefit Lil Wayne’s non-profit organization One Family Foundation and other charities.

Lil Wayne Evicts Stalkers Off His Miami Property

The life of a famous rapper isn’t easy, just ask Lil Wayne. Apparently, while the Young Money leader was trying to relax at his Miami crib, two male fans tried to invade his personal space. Luckily for us, their interaction with an irate Weezy was captured on video.

According to RapFix, the two wannabe stalkers drove through Lil Wayne’s posh neighborhood after spotting a beautiful female guest rolling up into his driveway. After waiting for a few minutes, the guys decided to drive up to Weezy’s crib to possibly get a photograph with him.

When one of the dudes spotted Wayne he yells, “Weezy … Can we get a quick picture bro?”
Wayne’s response: “Yo, do me a favor, get the f— out this neighborhood, or get your head knocked the f— off, do that. Get the f— out this neighborhood homie.”

The two fans obliged Wayne’s request and departed from his property. We are not even mad at Weezy for threatening the two stalkers with bodily harm. In the end, it’s safe to say, that when Lil Wayne is chillin’ at his crib, leave him alone.

Shanell, ‘So Good’ Feat. Lil Wayne and Drake – Song Review

R&B songbird Shanell (aka Snl) has been crowned the First Lady of Young Money way before Nicki Minaj joined the illustrious label. She’s been laying low behind the scenes in A&R development, penning songs for Lil Wayne and other artists as she waits her turn to shine as a soloist.

Well, that time has come and for her introductory single, ‘So Good,’ she grabs YM cohorts Wayne and Drake to recite a few verses. Produced by the hit-making team of Cool & Dre, the bouncy song boasts stirring violins and an 808 thump that perfect for car cruising in Miami or California.

On the song, Shanell pines for her boo who seems to be mysteriously absent. “And when ya gone too long / I’m waiting with your T-shirt on / Playing love songs,” she sings. “You make me feel good / You tell me love is crazy / I guess that we are too / There ain’t a thing I won’t do to prove that I’ll be here for you.”

Much of Weezy lyrics are reflective of the money boasting he’s known. He raps, “Tune go hard, y’all softer than my car top / Hank Gathers, I’ma ball ’til my heart stops.” Meanwhile, Drizzy is up for a little girl chasing at the start of his day. “You know I wake up like a king, get up, stunt / Take advantage of the day, this s–t won’t happen more than once / Know I’m ready for whatever, ready for the action / I’m still focused on my s–t, but girl I’m up for a distraction,” he spits.

After dominating the rap game, it’s good to see Young Money move into the R&B world with Shanell as their flagship artist. The singer-songwriter has a soulful voice and we can’t wait to see what she can bring on her own without the assistance of Wayne and Drake. For now, this is a cool track to rock to in the name of love.

Robin Thicke, ‘Pretty Lil’ Heart’ feat. Lil Wayne – Song Review

Robin Thicke reunites with his good friend Lil Wayne in the tender ballad ‘Pretty Lil’ Heart,’ from his upcoming new LP ‘Love After War.’ The song features the softer sides of Weezy and Thicke as they comfort their lovers with soothing lyrics.

Tunechi is soft-spoken and sincere with his opening verse on the soulful tune. He raps, “You commit, I commit / She say she love me, I’m convinced / Don’t need a rocket scientist to see that you and I are meant.”

Thicke follows with lyrics asking his lover to reassure him that her devotion for him is true. “Tell me that I’m sexy / Like I was before / Tell me I got it / That you want it even more / Tell me that you’ll never, ever / Ever leave me side, side / Tell me cause you know / I need to hear it every night,” he sings.

‘Pretty Lil’ Heart’ is a great song and it’s good to hear Thicke return to his soulful territory. We don’t know if radio will embrace the single, but it’s perfect for those romantic nights when you want to cozy up to your mate. If you like the song, it will be available via iTunes on Nov. 8. Thicke’s full-length studio album hits stores on Dec. 6.
