Master P Says His Business Advice Can Help Mayweather & Other Artists, Claims Drugs Are Hurting Rap


(AllHipHop News) Yesterday (Jan. 6), Percy “Master P” Miller, visited New York City and sat down with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. During the in-depth interview the music mogul spoke on an array of topics. People such as Pimp C, Bill Cosby, and Jarren Benton popped up during the informative exchange.

The independent icon also explained his thoughts on the importance of cultivating a positive perspective and sound business acumen. “If we are going to be successful, we have to educate ourselves in business and cut off negative people from our lives,” he said. As the conversation continued the New Orleans native added, “Floyd Mayweather could 
be making a whole lot more money if he had products that he was marketing 
and promoting.” More empowering advice was offered when Mr. Miller stressed that securing trusted advice is instrumental to building financial wealth.

While acknowledging that many entertainers are surrounded by “Yes-people” are have easy access to drugs, Master P, expressed his thoughts on some artists’ lack of passion and dismal work-ethics. “Nobody really wanna work no more…Everybody getting high now,” said the self-made entrepreneur. “The syrup is killing the whole—this generation. Sometimes you don’t have to work for the money. If you do what you gotta do and you good at it, the money gon’ come. You gotta love what you’re doing.”

With the focus directed to contemporary rappers P then opened up about his thoughts on the heightened drug with Hip-Hop. “Drugs and syrup are killing this generation of Hip Hop.”

The interview in its entirety:

From better business moves to breaking out the boxing gloves; do you agree with Master P?

    wait, didn’t this clown base his entire persona on selling drugs and violence. WTF what about all the Ice cream Man sh!t that he STILL raps about.

    • rs_yes

      The problem is young folks are too damn impressionable. Just because you say something in music, it doesn’t mean you have to go do it in the streets. It’s the same concept with movies…you don’t go imitating movies, so don’t do it with music.

    MAYWEATHER HAS MADE OVER A BILLION DOLLARS IN HIS BOXING CAREER!!! I SERIOUSLY DOUBT HE WILL TAKE ANY ADVICE FROM MASTER P!!!

    • RichFromBX

      Look up his Floyd’s net worth and then relate it back to how much he’s earned in his career. Floyd needs all the advice he can get. When he was fighting and earning he was spending at a scary rate so now that he’s retired, he has the potential to be broke within 15 years because spending buying don’t just go away. It’s a disease that most athletes have, they don’t ever think the money will stop.

      • dbfromdc

        NIGGA IS SAID THE MONEY MAYWEATHER MADE OVER HIS ENTIRE CAREER NOT MAYWEATHER’S NET WORTH!!! THAT’S TWO DIFFERENT THINGS!!! AIN’T NOBODY LISTENING TO NO WASHED UP MASTER P!!! P AIN’T MADE NO REAL MONEY SINCE THE 90’S!!!

      • RichFromBX

        if you think earnings and net worth have no relationship you’ll just be broke you’re entire life. Actually, let me help you…let’s say Floyd has earned $1.2 billion over his 20 year career. At the end of 2015 he had a net worth a little over $400 million, this after earning $300 million between June 2014 and June 2015.

        The fact that over 2/3 of his earnings are gone is absurd! he’s spending almost as fast as he’s earning. At his current pace, he’ll go broke. Even scarier is that he earned $300 million in the last year and only has a net worth of just over $400 million.

        P’s net worth is around $350 million…to entertain your assessment that P hasn’t made real money since the 90s…you tell me who’s the better businessman…the guy with over a billion dollar in earnings over the last 20 years with only $400 million left after earning $300 million in the last year or….the guy who’s had no serious earnings over the last 20 years and still has $350 million???

        You’ll probably just respond with more capitalized nonsense because I can already see there’s way too much math and thinking for you to handle.

      • dbfromdc

        AIN’T NOBODY READING ALL THAT BULLSHIT BROKE ASS NIGGA!!! YOU AIN’T DOING SHIT BUT POCKET WATCHIN!!! MAYWEATHER WILL MAKE MASTER P WHOLE NET WORTH IT TOOK HIM 20 YEARS TO MAKE IN ONE FIGHT MORON!!! YOU WORRIED ABOUT HOW MAYWEATHER SPENDS HIS MONEY LIKE A GOLD DIGGING BITCH!!!SMMFH

      • RichFromBX

        not going to read or can’t read?….thank you for proving my point

      • dbfromdc

        THE ONLY THING YOU PROVED IS YOU KNOW HOW TO COUNT ANOTHER NIGGAS MONEY!!!

      • RichFromBX

        says the guy who’s initial comment noted how much Floyd earned in his career…

      • dbfromdc

        I NEVER TALKED ABOUT HOW ANOTHER MAN SPENDS HIS MONEY LIKE THE WHOLE BOOK YOU JUST TYPED ON MAYWEATHER SPENDING HABITS YOU POCKET WATCHIN ASS NIGGA!!!

  • P is TV shows even to this day and Romeo is as well he knows the entertainment industry, he made himself all the way relevant all over again.

  • THISIS50

    P is smart

  • RichFromBX

    I’ll take advice from a guy who was successful, failed and then rebuilt any day over someone who’s never failed.

    Why someone is successful can’t always be quantified…sometimes, it’s being in the right place at the right time but failure is always quantifiable. Every time someone fails you can pinpoint it back to the event that started the downslide. The fact that P did that, learned the lesson and rebuilt let’s you know that this man is smarter than most.

    • Isa Ibn Maryam

      The hardest thing to learn in business is to separate your personal expenditures from your business margin.

    • 1 thing I’ve learned about business over the years is that the best way to get it right is to get it wrong.

  • Obi Won

    P be looking out giving away those Gems.

  • disqus_wP9qaQP4Hv

    Dude talks too much, It’s a new age and day not like the 90’s hope he realises that. If he’s that dude, do it all over again instead of talking about it. Like he ain’t never failed, what happened to the oil business or the clothing line or the politics. I respect his hustle back in the day but now he’s trying to live of yesterday, yester years…. See the real person we all should learn from is Warren Buffet who gave all his wealth to Bil Gates to help him give it away towards good causes, few years later turn around to do it all over again. That’s who i respect not the talkers. Just saying
