Rapper and actor Master P stops by 'Club Shay Shay'
On this week's episode of "Club Shay Shay," musician, actor and former NBA player Master P dropped by the club.
Percy Miller is founder of the record label No Limit Records and a former NBA player, known for dabbling in a little bit of everything from, creating music and movies to owning sports leagues.
And with such a wide range of interests and accomplishments, Master P learned early to always bet on himself.
"I named myself Master P because I’m a master at whatever I do ... and it's all about consistency and putting in the work. Even a failure to me is a lesson. ... I just gotta keep going, and I'll get there, and that's what I did in the music industry. ... I went from selling no records to 100 million independently."
Master P began his music career in 1990, opening a record store named "No Limit Records," which later became the foundation for his own record label. By 1998, Master P came in at No. 10 on Forbes magazine's list of America's 40 highest-paid entertainers, establishing himself as a business mogul in the music industry.
At the same time, Master P had brief stints with two NBA teams: the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors. But since he never made it past the preseason, he knew he wouldn't have reached the same heights in the game.
"This is a blessing for me because I wouldn’t be able to feed the people I feed now. I wouldn't be able to do the things if I was on an NBA salary. I can give more people opportunities. I can create more millionaires."
Speaking of Lillard, Master P believes 'Dame Dolla' is at the top of the list of athletes who can bust a rhyme.
"The guy in Portland has got to be the best. D-Lil got to be the best – from what I see."
