Lil Wayne and Birdman have one of hip-hop's most storied partnerships, and now their teenage daughters have teamed up for a new book. Reginae Carter and Bria Williams, both 14, have helped pen Paparazzi Princesses, which tells the story of two young girls dealing with unintentional fame as they grow up as the kids of famous parents. But the book also looks to handle the struggles of normal high schoolers, like schoolwork and hallway crushes.

"There's no better feeling than watching Bria and Reginae make this dream come true," said Birdman in a statement reported by AllHipHop.com. "They took an idea, worked extremely hard, and brought it to life. It's the kind of story that everybody can feel, and it's only the start of much bigger things for these two wonderful young ladies."

Lil Wayne added, "Proud doesn't even begin to describe how me and the Birdman feel. I can't wait for everybody else to experience their story." Paparazzi Princesses, which was co-authored by Karyn Langhorne Folan, will be out June 4th.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
