Percy Robert Miller Sr. has established himself as Master P, lending his talent to music and entertainment.
Since then, Master P has used his success to give back to the masses at various outlets.
One of his most successful endeavors is his time as an entrepreneur.
Here we look at some of the companies the seasoned rapper has successfully created.
No Limit records
Founded in 1991, No Limits Records is the independent label of Master P.
The label is one of the most successful black record labels of all time and has other prominent names such as Snoop Dogg, Musical, Silkk the Shocker, C-Murder and Romeo Miller, son of Maestro P.
No Limit Clothing
When No Limit Records was launched, Master P moved his business ventures to the No Limit clothing line.
Early t-shirts had the No Limit tank logo, but the designs featured album covers over time.
T-shirts were initially only available on concert tours or mail orders, but No Limit Clothing has spread to independent and department stores.
No Limit Films
Master P started an independent film studio called No Limit Films with a knack for entertainment.
The first production, I’m Bout It, sold 220,000 copies in the first week without a major distribution deal.
Meanwhile, the film I Got the Hookup was produced on a $ 3.5 million budget and grossed over $ 10 million at the box office.
While Master P struck a deal with Artisan Pictures, none of the other releases matched the success of I Got the Hookup.
No Limit Sports Management
Although a talented individual, Master P is also an athlete, having signed with the Charlotte Hornets in 1998.
A year later, the rapper played for the Toronto Raptors, the only team to show rare footage in Miller’s # 17 uniform.
However, No Limit Sports Management was not as successful as Master P.
PM Properties & MP Realty
PM Properties is a testament to the rapper’s love for the real estate industry.
A property management company, PM Properties, manages properties with hundreds of tenants.
In 2018, Master P launched a luxury brand called Moneyatti. The brand sold shoes, clothing and other fashion accessories.
The brand name stands for “Motivating yourself now actively motivates you to think independently.”
Moneyatti and Master P have offered Zion Williamson, the top pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, a $ 20 million deal to sign her shoe line.
However, Williamson signed with Jordan instead.
Moneyatti’s sneakers sell for between $ 200 and $ 300, putting them above the retail price of a new pair of Jordan or Yeezy.
Big Poppa Hamburger
Based in his hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana, Master P opened Big Poppa Burgers in 2019.
The restaurant owes its name to the rapper’s grandfather, who, among other things, prepared the ‘secret sauce.’ Big Poppa Burgers sells burgers, chicken and waffles, sandwiches, fries and shakes.
The restaurant continues to garner positive reviews on Google, Grubhub, and Yelp.
Chef Boyar P announced the launch of Rap Noodles – an “ICON” variety of ramen noodles featuring various rappers on the cover in 2019.
Master P created the pasta line in collaboration with the 17-year-old brand Rap Snacks.
Rao Noodles is available at select Save-A-Lot and 7-Eleven stores.
Master P created a food brand called Uncle P’s in response to brands like Uncle Ben’s that feature Black characters but are not Black-owned.
“We never knew who Uncle Ben was,” the rapper explained.
“So when I figured this guy was a model from the 1940s. So all of that money we put in, none of it ever came back to our community.”
Recent business ventures
Recent Master P ventures include food projects.
To combat the unbearable heat, he created LA Great Snow Cones, which feature flavors like Blue Raspberry, Bubblegum, Cherry, Grape, Green Apple, Lemonade, and Orange Stick.
The rapper also has Soldier, Rap Snacks and more.
TMZ recently reported that Master P would be collaborating with Snoop Dogg for another food project.
