Don't come for the kids.
Our favorite artists may have climbed their way to the top with their talent, but most of them owe it all to those that gave them life. In hip hop, there’s been a trend over the years of mother being the managers for some of the biggest names. When they’re not taking care of the household, these momagers are out on the road with their talented seeds, making sure everything gets done to help them rise to the top.
Sonja is the mother to Ray J and Brandy, and is almost solely responsible for Brandy’s launch into superstardom when she was just a teenager.
Debra may be the mother of Waka Flocka, but she is best known for managing Nicki Minaj’s career in the earlier years. She played a huge role in helping the female MC become a household name in music.
Beyoncé owes a lot of her success to her father, Mathew Knowles, as she went from Destiny’s Child into her solo career, but her mother was also a pretty strict momager. She played a big role in styling the Queen Bey, and made sure her daughter was always spiritually in line.
