T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle returned with a new season on April 15. In promotion to launch season two of the VH1 reality show hit, I invited Antonia “Toya” Wright and her daughter Reginae Carter to give a peek into season two. Toya is a rapper, businesswoman, and best-selling author of several books: Priceless Inspirations: The memoir, “In My Own Words: My Real Reality,” “How to Lose A Husband,” and “You Just Don’t Get It,” with her daughter, Reginae Carter.
Reginae, like her superstar rapper dad, Li’l Wayne, has a knack for music. Wayne’s oldest child was a member of Tamecka “Tiny” Cottle’s teen group, OMG Girlz 2010.
Since leaving the group, Reginae has spent time in the studio with her dad — a move which leaves her strong fan base excited to see what’s next. T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, with exciting lives and high stakes careers, this group of loyal friends will continue to support each other as they navigate the complex terrain of balancing family, fame and the hustle.
The VH1 series features Grammy® Award-winning, multiplatinum artists Tip “T.I.” Harris and Tameka “Tiny” Harris and their children Zonnique, Messiah, Domani, Deyjah, King, Major and Heiress. Joining them again is multi-platinum, Grammy® award winning artist Monica Brown, New York Times best-selling author Antonia “Toya” Wright with her daughter Reginae Carter, and actress and Grammy® Award winning singer-songwriter Letoya Luckett. – provided by T.I. & Tiny’s publicity team.
