The inside article features features model Kai Morae (daughter of actress Lisa Raye McCoy), actor/rapper Quincy Brown (son of music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs), singer/actress Skye Townsend (daughter of actor/director Robert Townsend), director Alfredo Flores (credits include Justin Bieber & Mariah Carey) and Hip-Hop/Pop recording artist H.

With a rare look into their lives, the new breakfast clubbers talk about their friendships, humble beginnings and what it feels like to follow in the steps of their uber successful parents & mentors.  Here are some excerpts:
Quincy Brown on being known as Diddy’s son:
“I don’t want to be labeled or have any handicaps for when I actually
achieve or earn something. It’s very easy for someone to say,”Oh, he got
that because he Diddy’s son.” My job is to make that HARD or IMPOSSIBLE for
anyone to say.”
Alfredo Flores on working with Justin Bieber:
“Justin is like my little brother. As he gets older, he has become one of
my best friends. At first, I was his big brother who talked to him about
girls and tried to show him the way. Now, that he is older, it’s like we can
talk about the same things and relate to each other in more ways than one.
He is a great kid, with a great heart and truly one of my best friends.”
Skye Townsend on when she realized her dad was a celebrity:
“I knew he was famous at a young age. I was always on set for “The
Parenthood” and realized he had to leave town a lot. However, I went to a
school where most kids lived like me with parents like mine so I assumed
everybody lived in such a way. I got a quick reality check on that though.”
Kai Morae on being independent:
“I’ve always been a very independent person. I could ask my mom (LisaRaye)
for stuff if I really wanted to but that’s not the kind of person I am. If I
want something I’ll work for it.”
H. Wood City on having a back-up plan:
“My mom would always tell me ‘Make sure you have a plan B just in case
acting & music doesn’t work out.’ As painful as it was to imagine all my
hard work and sacrifices being done in vain, I knew she was right.”
The issue goes on sale October 21st, 2011.
