Will Smith’s Daughter Willow vs. Master P’s Daughter Cymphonique [Family Ties]

Regardless of what some may think of their rap skills respectively, Will Smith (f.k.a. The Fresh Prince) and Percy Miller (a.k.a. Master P) both have crazy bank. In addition to their interests in music and film, the hip-hop dads both have kids following in their footsteps. At just 12-years-old Will’s son Jaden has appeared in three major films (The Pursuit of Happyness, The Day the Earth Stood Still and this summer’s blockbuster The Karate Kid).

His little sister Willow, 9, has three films under her belt (I Am Legend, Kit Kitridge: An American Girl and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa) as well. Now she’s making waves on the airwaves with her pop single, “Whip My Hair,” which earned the tyke a spot on Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

Master P’s nepotism is notorious, as he employed his brothers C-Murder and Silkk the Shocker as artists on his No Limit label, and groomed his son Romeo, 21, to be a triple threat as a rap star, actor and ball player. Earlier today, P’s 14-year-old daughter, Cymphonique, released a new single, “Soldier Girl,” that got us her at XXL thinking about the similar career trajectories of these second generation hip-hoppers.

Since the young ladies seem to be ripping the airwaves, we figured we’d stick to them for now and leave the boys out of it. Sorry, Jaden and Romeo. Check out Willow and Cymphonique’s songs and let us know who y’all think is really ‘bout it ‘bout it. —Anslem Samuel

    • SLLEP

      STOP HATIN!

    • NELLY

      Will Smith and P.Miller have both made a name for themselves in Hip Hop and have been at the top of they game at one point or another. Now that they’re grown ass men and fathers they’re passing it on their seeds aint nothing wrong with that but haters gone hate no matter what because they aint doin shit for themselves or their own kids so they gotta hate on folks who are lol now thats the truth

      Willow and Cymphonique have incredible potential to make some noise in the Hip Hop arena because of the foundation their fathers built. Both are beautiful and talented girls lets just hope that they will stay on the right path and not let Hip Hop, money, haters, etc destroy them

      HIP HOP LIVES FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
      IT BELONGS TO OUR PEOPLE

  • Shawny

    I’m sorry but Willow has my vote….. for some reason that other one puts me in the mind of Christine Millian and we all see what happened to her career….. sorry Cymphonique!……Go WILLOW!!!!!!!

  • ItsBrittanyB*tch!!!!!

    I like them both, please don’t make these two compete!! They are both young so they both have a chance at success!!

    • that nigga

      Hey Brittany, thats life. Everything is competition. This is America. Never liked anything outta Master P’s camp. Sorry, get her Willow. Fuck that.

      • ItsBrittanyB*tch!!!!!

        dude they 9 years old?? Plus music is an art form, everyone don’t like the same artist therefore we shouldn’t have to choose one over the other, I can choose both, and I do. Both of their shit is ok for 9 year olds.

      • ItsBrittanyB*tch!!!!!

        dude they 9 years old?? What life??

        • DMAC

          ALL YALL NEED TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA WANTS. IS FOR THESE YOUNG KIDS TO COMPETE BUT TRUTH BE TOLD THEY BOTH GOT MY VOTE!!!! GO YOUNG BLACK LADIES & DONT FALL FOR THE HYPE!!!

  • ladidadida

    i cant tell the difference between willow and rhianna

  • Sha

    Nepotism at it’s finest!!!!

    Has XXL morphed into the Nick Jr? Why is this even on your website?

    On the real, neither one of these little girls would get a second glance if it weren’t for who their parents are.

    I hate to say this (No I don’t), but XXL is part of the reason hip-hop isn’t as strong a force as it once was. Which one of these parents paid you guys for this article????

    I personally believe that myself and several other regular bloggers could put out better stuff than 60% of whoever is sitting their non-deserving asses in your office chairs. And that’s real!!!

    XXL, get it together!!!

    • http://nwso.net Anslem

      Well we got another reader blog competition in the new issue so let’s put ya blog where ya mouth is and try out. The last reader blog week went well, and gives you guys in the board a chance to show & prove.

      And hey, if Jaden was rappin I would have done Diggy vs. Jaden, but Cymonique dropped that vid today and it hit me.

      lol

  • John Cochran

    Now yall know that the average visitors of this site are grown men. Why yall put these children up there?? XXL yall gotta do better.

  • Mad Maga

    Man, fuck this kindergarden shit. XXL is not hip hop anymore.

  • Face Phoenix

    Why are ppl so quick to sell their children to ills and seductions of fame? Let them be a kid first and if they want to be a star later then help them.

  • Funny as hell

    Damn all this hip hop kids…. Then Romeo, Cory Gunz and now the ice cube kids.

    Where the fuck are Pun’s kids and Biggie’ kids
    fuck outta here

  • BeerGangsta

    Take notes Black People!! This is how you raised kids. You don’t spend your hold life making 10 Dollars an hour. You get Rich!! Do something that you are good at to get Rich!! God will do the rest!!

  • apollo13

    @Beergangsta

    Thats just talkin stupid homie! don’t try and sell your/ your kids souls to get famous. You’ll do a lot better going to college/university, get a degree under your belt, then follow those dreams. although in all honesty school isnt for everyone, but you cant tell them that what they ( willow and cymphonique) is what everyone should be doing

    • Gemz

      Lil’ Romeo is enrolled at the University of Southern California unless he graduated already.

      • swype-matic

        NOPE! He realized that USC bball has too much competition and wasn’t gettin an OUNCE of playin time, and he left, I think sometime last yr.

      • Tee

        FYI Romeo is graduating this year with two degrees majoring in Film & Business (I just read that in an article recently)

        Hip Hop is growing and hopefully the next generation will be better educated so they dont get raped on the business side Master P did right by his kids putting education first and giving back. Im always hearing and reading about the Millers doing some type of charity, free bball camp, speaking to at risk youth kids in school and so on.
        Hip Hop is about loving good raw music and loving ourselves enough to grow and keep getting better…
        damn stop the hating ppl

  • Q461

    Yeah this is bullshit. This shit ain’t hip-hop I dont care who thier parents are. Willow prob has a better shot at blowin up though. Corey Gunz and Diggy are better examples of hip-hops next generation with famous rapping parents.

  • Killa Cam

    Willow is tight. Someone needs to freestyle over that shit. That beat is hot.

  • wits.snapps

    aww hell yeah diggin that beat willow was on but hahaha these young ass tracks joke 2 us hip-hop heads love 2 get my hands on that beat tho

  • Chaka

    Some brothas on this blog are sounding as if they know more hip hop than the brotha that posted this article.we dont have to be narrow minded and think towards only one direction(thats a problem with most of us blacks).No,we have to be diverse.And thats what I think hip-hop as an art should be.It shouldnt be all seriousness,all hardness,always looking tough.There also should be comical and fruity moments.In my own opinion,I feel the jam from Willow is tight and banging.She straight murdered the track and some pple on this blog are just hatin cuz they were not as talented when they where her age.

  • Sam

    Cymphonique is hands down the best talent!
    She’s the truth I love her!!

  • Lovely1

    Both girls are adorable and talented Willow song is cute I’m feelin Cymphonique music. I must admit Cymphonique is a real entertainer she knows how to perform.
    It’s about time somebody represent for the soldier girls I’m feelin you baby Beyonce haha

  • MizzBee

    First of all congrats to the young ladies for their accomplishments at such a young age I’m sure they’ll go far. I have 3 teenage daughters and they love their music and they’re always replaying Cymphonique’s videos to learn the dances. Both girls are so young and have so much more growth to come at least they will have their parents experience and wisdom to guide them.
    You go Willow and Cymphonique!!!!!!!!

  • CARTER

    THERES ALOT OF YOUNG ARTISTS GETTING THEIR SHINE ON RIGHT NOW AND TO BE REAL… CYMPHONIQUE HAS THE IT FACTOR SHE HAS THE LOOK THE SKILLS THE VOCALS ETC. UNFORTUNATELY THE BUSINESS DOESNT REQUIRE REAL TALENT TO BE SUCCESSFUL ANYMORE NOWADAYS ITS THE MARKETING AND PROMOTING DOLLARS THAT WILL DO THE BRAINWASHING

  • Ali

  • USVI In da house

    Both these young ladies are very talented and they each have their own style. I appreciate with the have to offer. I think they both have strong foundations and will make it very far in the music industry. Let’s just continue to pray the these kids and don’t let them fall off the straight path they are on. Go Girls

    Love them both
