Master P

Master P (born April 29, 1970) is a rapper, known for his work as the head of No Limit[?] and the rappers signed to it. He comes from New Orleans and attended the University of Houston[?] on a basketball scholarship, but soon moved to Richmond and dropped out, taking business class at Merritt Junior College[?]. Using his grandfather's inheritance, Master P formed No Limit as a record store, then turned it into a label.

Master P's debut album was The Ghetto Is Trying to Kill Me[?]; it was followed by a compilation of No Limit artists called West Coast Bad Boyz[?]. No Limit launched a string of hits, popular among mainstream audiences in spite of critical cries of a watered-down sound. Master P's own solo albums include 99 Ways to Die[?], Ice Cream Man[?], Ghetto Dope[?] and Da Last Don[?]. Master P then financed two films, I'm Bout It[?] and I Got the Hook Up[?] before trying to return to basketball. He returned to music with 1999's Only God Can Judge Me[?], followed by Ghetto Postage[?].

Master P has since gone on to have his own flavor of rapsnacks[?] potato chips: platinum barbecue.
