Master P is an American rapper, record executive, actor, and entrepreneur who was born on April 29, 1967. He founded No Limit Records, which was relaunched as New No Limit Records through Universal Records and Koch Records, then as Guttar Music Entertainment, and finally as No Limit Forever Records. P. Miller Enterprises and Better Black Television, a short-lived online television network, were both founded by him. Miller rose to prominence in the mid-1990s because to the popularity of his hip hop duo TRU and his fifth solo rap album Ice Cream Man, which featured his first song “Mr. Ice Cream Man.” After the success of his Platinum hit “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” in 1997, Miller earned even more popularity. Miller has 15 studio albums to his credit.
Percy Robert Miller was born and reared in the Calliope Projects in Central City, in the Third Ward of Uptown New Orleans, Louisiana. He is the eldest child in a family of five. Germaine is his only sibling, and he has three brothers: Kevin, Corey “C-Murder,” and Vyshonne “Silkk the Shocker,” all platinum-selling rap artists. He went to Warren Easton High School and Booker T. Washington High School.
Miller received an athletic scholarship to the University of Houston after playing basketball there, but dropped out months into his freshman year and went to Merritt College in Oakland, California to study business administration.
Miller received $10,000 as part of a malpractice compensation after his grandfather died. Miller founded No Limit Records And Tapes in Richmond, California, which later became the foundation for No Limit Records. Master P released the cassette tape Mind Of A Psychopath on February 15, 1990.
Kevin Miller, his brother, was killed in New Orleans the same year. This fueled his desire to better his life and save his family by becoming a great entrepreneur.
