Do you agree with Nipsey's point about Master P not getting enough credit?

November 8, 2018




Nipsey Hussle made what could be considered a very interesting point about Master P.

During an interview with Billboard, the Victory Lap MC said that P doesn't get the same credit as other folks who started their own label and became moguls. Nip also said that Master P had a huge influence on him as a kid.


“[No Limit Records] were dropping every week,” he said. “You didn’t have to see the back and see the logo, you could see the artwork and know it’s a No Limit release. They branded an image. Master P was an innovator in so many different ways. Puff gets his credit, Dame and Jay get their credit, Ruff Ryders, Irv Gotti and Chris Gotti, they get their credit. P don’t get his credit, man.”


Nipsey also believes the New Orleans legend may have been held back because he was so successful early on.


“This is my opinion and I could be dead wrong," he stated. “He was the first to do it the way he did it. He put his kids on, he put Romeo on. He turned into a businessman. He did films. He burned the game out. He maxed out. I don’t know if he just got tired of the game. It’s like Jordan, like, ‘I’ve done everything, so what else I’ma do?’ You know the accolades. He was worth a hundred mil in his 20s. He broke the bank. I think maybe he needed to take a breath, but when he took a breath, somebody else stepped into the forefront.”


“You know, we got short memories. All of us do,” added Nip. “Puff figured out how to keep going without making music. I think P was grinding on his investments and put his kids on. Romeo came and popped. Then Master P’s brother went to jail for a long time and that affects you when somebody that close to you catches a case. I respect what he did, man. He put his family on. He did everything like a boss. You gotta salute Master P.”
