Master P Says He’s The Michael Jordan Of The Street Hip Hop Industry

(AllHipHop News) At one point in the 1990’s Master P and his No Limit Records were one of the most dominating forces in Hip Hop. With tracks like “I’m Bout It, Bout It” and “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” the No Limit tank was running through the streets.


Master P also made a huge mark on the music industry for the business moves he established for his label. The New Orleans legend signed an unprecedented deal with Priority Records that reportedly included P earning 80% of the wholesale price for every album sold and 100% ownership of all the master recordings.

“I ain’t trying to be the best lyricist. I’m just trying to make music that people could feel,” Master P tells VladTV. “But I am the best businessman. I feel I am the best hustler in the game.”

Master P also shares his take on what he sees as the wrong way some of the newer artists are hustling. After 75 million albums sold, the creator of Ghetto D thinks it is his work ethic that makes him the G.O.A.T. of street Hip Hop.

“I come from the streets. When you’re hot that’s when you keep on hitting. These artists nowadays, they get a hit song and that be it. They think they can chill. That’s when you gotta work more,” said P. “That’s why I call myself the Michael Jordan of this whole street Hip Hop industry.”

    I would strongly strongly strongly disagree. But based on his net worth he has a debatable point. He made a pretty big impact on hip hop. I don’t know if it was positive, but he made an impact. That can’t be disputed.

    He had a 2-3 year run, when DEATHROW got held up with their Distributor WARNER in that C.Delores Tucker vs. Time Warner BS. But He put out GARBAGE music, got sued into bankruptcy, never paid his artist’s royalties, didn’t support his incarcerated brother, & can’t act or rap worth sh*t, THEN it was all gone! Lawsuits, divorce, artists getting tha f*ck out as soon as they could & he’s been trying to comeback for 20 years…..ain’t happening, NOW rather than other people talking about you, YOU keep proclaiming ‘yourself’ the ‘Michael Jordan’ of rap & this BS. You will go down in history as one of the most marginally talented, luckiest average bullsh*tter that f*cked it ALL off & is now a ‘has been’…….. as Tony Neal of CORE DJs said ‘Percy PLEASE stop rapping!’
