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
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.
