CAN MASTER P PULL THIS OFF


A few months ago a blog friend of mine called NATIVE SON wrote a piece about Master P going clean that is how I first got wind of this story. In his post was a link to letter that Master P had wrote in response to some ignorant a@s comments Fitty cent had made.


In the letter Master P took apart Fitty referring to him as Curtis Jackson and pointing out that he had been the one to finance fittys first tour. Here is a statement from Fitty and Master P's response courtesy of my man the NATIVE SON .



"Well Master P doesn’t sell CDs anymore,” 50 said calmly, which caused the room full of reporters to burst out laughing. “You can tell him I said it. Cameras is rollin’ right? …‘Curtis,’ June 26.”




"There are four things that differentiate me from artists like Curtis Jackson.


One, I can honestly admit that I was once part of the problem.


Two, I don’t want my son to grow up and be like me. I want him to be better and do better - and that is why he is taking the time to pursue a college degree.

Three, money don’t make me, I make money. My goal is to educate our people in building generational wealth and knowing how important it is to own real estate.



Four, I’m a TRUE entrepreneur; my boss is God not Jimmy Iovine. From one brother to another, if you misunderstand my purpose you could always pick up the phone or talk to me in person. I’m trying to be part of the solution not the problem. The media thrives on entertaining, especially the negativity no matter what the cost. I’m praying for the brothers that are lost out there."



Then tonight I came across this NPR STORY FEATURING MASTER P. P was spitting some truly profound game. This brotha needs to be acknowledged and supported. Major, Major kudos to Master P he just might change the world. He could possibly blow up to baby Oprah status.

I am happy that Master P is putting this down! I heard the NPR interview & saw a glimmer of hope for change. "50 no sense" needs to sit his pimped out ass down!

I used to hate Master P big time but over the last few years I have seen a progression in him & his entrepreneurial spirit that I wish was contagious!

Master P is making things happen.
