mp-2

Master P was ordered to pay $105,000 in punitive

damages to an 80 year old woman on Thursday (Dec. 27). The woman’s voice was

tape recorded and used on a 1998 album that Master P. executive produced. The

song also featured Master P’s younger brother C-Murder and Snoop Dogg.

Geneva Burger was taped by musician Johnny Lupo

in 1997. Lupo asked her questions about marijuana use. Burger didn’t know she

was being taped and the song appeared on the introduction to "No Limit,’

the 13th song on Magic’s 1998 album, Sky’s the Limit. Master P executive

produced the album, which according to Burger’s lawyers, made over $3 million

dollars.

Judge R. Bruce Minto ordered Master P to pay

the damages, because she suffered from anxiety and embarrassment after hearing

her voice on what was labeled a "crude gangsta rap CD."

Snoop Dogg already settled out of court for $75,000

and Priority records also gave her $300,000 before the trial begin. Priority

is also suing Master P., seeking to be reimbursed for the settlement.
