Master P First Hip Hop Artist Inducted In Louisiana Music Hall of Fame

Percy Miller aka Master P is amongst other greats like Louis Armstrong, Elvis Presley and Mahalia Jackson to be inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. There are 160 members to date and Percy Miller makes history by being the first Hip Hop artist to be inducted. Master P has single handedly pioneered southern Hip Hop from the streets of New Orleans to the world. His single “Make’em Say Ugh” became a music epidemic, crossing barriers of cultures and music genres, taking him from performing at local nite clubs to the big arenas, spreading worldwide selling over 10 million singles. Percy Miller, the New Orleans, Louisiana native, surpassed any expectation of a musician growing up in poverty and chasing a dream. In 1999, he established the world’s #1 record company, No Limit Records, independently, making the Guinness Book of World Records for selling the most albums in a year. Since then, he’s sold over 75 million records, attained 5 Grammys, 4 American Music Awards, 3 MTV Awards, 4 BET Awards, and ranked #36 in VH1’s Top 50 Greatest Hip Hop Artists in the world. Due to his amazing accomplishments, he has been granted membership into the prestige Louisiana Music Hall of Fame on July 4th of 2013 by President Mike Shepherd.  For more information, go to http://louisianamusichalloffame.org
