Master P is an American businessman, film producer, and rap mogul worth $200 million. Master P was one of the most successful hip-hop artists in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He is still one of the wealthiest rappers and businesspeople in the world.
Early years of Master P
Master P was born Percy Miller on April 29, 1970, in New Orleans, Louisiana. This city is known for its music, but maybe not the kind that he would go on to make. He grew up in the city’s Calliope Projects. He was one of four kids. His brothers Vyshonne and Corey, who went by Silkk The Shocker and C-Murder, were also successful rap artists.
The family grew up in the Calliope Projects, known for being some of the most dangerous in the city. After his parents split up, he spent time with his father’s family in New Orleans and with the family of his mother in Richmond, California.
He played basketball a lot at Booker T. Washington High School and Warren Easton High School, and he won a scholarship to the University of Houston. But this didn’t last long. In his first year of college, he switched to Merrit Junior College in Oakland, California, to study business.
The Career of Master P
Master P has so many jobs that it would be hard to choose just two or three. His net worth comes from many different sources, such as his work as a rapper, an entrepreneur, and sometimes an actor. After his grandfather died, he got $10,000 while still living in Oakland. He used the money to open a record store called No Limit Records.
After learning what his customers liked, he decided in 1990 to add a record label to the store. “Mind of a Psychopath,” an EP that came out in 1990 and was only on cassette, was his first work. This was put out under the name The Real Untouchables, which is often shortened to just “TRU.”
Two of his brothers were in this supergroup. Kevin, Master P’s other brother, was killed in New Orleans. Since his first album, Get Away Clean, came out in 1991, Master P has been releasing and producing music regularly. With the release of a few more solo albums and collaborations with TRU, his reputation in the underground gangsta rap scene grew.
In 1995, he decided to move the label back to his hometown of New Orleans, where he continued to build his empire. Since then, he’s put out several albums with varying degrees of success.
Mr. Ice Cream Man and Ghetto D, which has his most famous song, “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” are two of the most popular albums from this period. Ghetto D sold more than 260,000 copies in its first week and later went on to get three platinum certifications. In 1998, the hit album MP Da Last Don was released.
The record sold even faster than Ghetto D, starting at number one on the Billboard charts and selling more than 400,000 copies in its first week. Master P released a movie to go with the album that same year. Game Face was Master P’s tenth studio album, released in 2001. In 2004, he released his eleventh album.
In 2005, Master P and his son Lil Romeo started an independent label called Guitar Music and released an album for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. In 2007, they made an album together that sold 32,000 copies worldwide. Master P worked with other artists, produced records, tours, and released mixtapes every year.
We All We Got, his sixth mixtape with No Limit Boys, was released in January 2017.
Other Actions of Master P
In the late 1990s, Master P built a well-rounded business empire that included several rap labels, a clothing line, a management company, a high-end travel agency, a film production company, a video game company, and even a phone sex line. Even though he has a lot of different businesses, No Limit Records is still his most famous and likely most successful.
It was the first label to bring the sound of Southern rap to the mainstream, and it has sold over 80 million records worldwide. In 1998, Master P’s business empire made more than $160 million. Master P’s first book, “Guaranteed Success,” was published in 2007.
Master P has also had a lot of success as an investor, including starting and running No Limit Entertainment. No Limit is a very successful independent record label. In addition to his rap albums, Master P has also had some success as an actor. Since 1997, he has acted in several feature films and movies that went straight to DVD.
In 1999, he even wrestled a few matches for World Championship Wrestling. He was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars and was partnered with Ashly DelGrosso. He got the lowest score in the show’s history and was voted off in Week 4. He is best known in the acting world for his role as Romeo’s father on the Nickelodeon children’s sitcom “Romeo!”
This was especially fitting because Romeo was played by P’s real-life son, rapper Lil Romeo. In 2015, it was announced that Master P and his family would have their reality show, titled Master P’s Family Empire. The show ran on Reelz for one season, which included ten episodes.
Accolades of Master P
