has been forced to sell an unfinished recording studio he was building in Baton
Rouge. P announced plans for the $10 million dollar studio in 1997, but contracting
disputes slowed the construction of the studio, which is nothing but a shell
surrounded by a chain link fence.
In July of 2001, a judge ruled in favor of Charles
Carter Construction, the project's contractor. According to that judgment, Master
P had to pay $190,165 for construction work, materials and equipment used to
build the recording studio.
The property is being sold by The East Baton
Rouge Parish Sheriff's office on Wednesday. Master P's current release, Gameface
is number 20 on Billboard's Rap/hip-hop album chart.
