MASTER P – FAMOUS AGAIN
Master P still has it. From the streets, to the studio, to the boardroom and beyond, the No Limit Forever head honcho delivers a nice effort on his new drop. Chronicling not just the success but the struggle as well, P hasn’t forgotten where he has come from. This new release is a twenty track presentation that shows P in prime form.
1. No Limit For Life
After selling over seventy five million records with his various companies, Master P could just sit back and relax. Instead his determination for success has increased with the relaunching of No Limit Forever. P was recently inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, becoming the first rapper in it’s history to do so. His legendary status as a mogul and trendsetter is a part of Hip Hop history. He continues the No Limit legacy working with newer artists such as Fat Trel and Alley Boy and his children are also following in his footsteps as artists, actors and entrepreneurs in their own right. Master P has a tireless work ethnic and is currently making his rounds with the No Limit fam on a concert tour.
2. Back To The Basics
The Ice Cream Man is known for his vivid portrayals of life in the ghetto and documenting his grustle to the top in a way that resonates with audiences from hood to hood. In late June, he stopped by NYC radio station Power 105 with his daughter Cymphonique, who is also an emerging artist on No Limit Forever. He spoke on the reason why he switched his content back to his original gangsta roots after cleaning up his lyrics in 2007. “I cleaned up my lyrics because I went through a transition in my life and I thought that was the way to do it – I had people in my ear like ‘P you know doing this – you in corporate America.’ But I looked in the Bible man – the Man took prostitutes and murderers to heaven.” P continues by stating, “I feel like my music is really speaking to the people and I could speak to this generation by being who I am. You think one thing cause you try to do stuff for other people, but I got to what’s best for me. This my God given talent, that’s how I talk to my people and this how I’m going to continue.” For the fans that grew up on P’s music this tape is an updated piece of No Limit nostalgia at it’s finest.
3. Heartfelt Rhymes
“Next Shooting Star”, “Make You Stronger” and “Heaven For A Gangsta” are three standout joints on Famous Again. P brings some sentimental bars to these tracks. He always shows both signs of the coin when it comes to street life and his making something out of nothing lifestyle is always inspirational. He is well known for giving back to his community. P also addresses the critical conditions happening in inner cities across the country.
“They building jailhouses should be building schools/
So much negativity I don’t watch the news/
They say a young ghetto life wasted every minute/
Never find the killer but a friend probably did it/
Pour a little liquor with the homies just to ease the pain/
I see mothers outside in the freezing rain/
It’s a cold world but we in it/
Try to kill my dreams but I told em No Limit” – Master P
