The HipHop Mogul Master P's Career, Wealth
Percy Miller was raised in the poverty of Calliope Housing Projects- a neighborhood in New Orleans, that gained notoriety for its extremely high violent crime rate.
Despite his circumstances, young Percy was determined to get his family out of the ghetto. Initially, his goal was to play at the NBA; he even got a basketball scholarship to the University of Houston. But unfortunately, his dreams shattered when he succumbed to a severe knee injury during his freshman year.
After that, he transferred to Merritt Junior College in Oakland, where he attended many business classes. Later, another tragedy struck him when his grandfather died in an accident at work. But his grandfather's death left him with a $10K insurance settlement check.
It was with that insurance claim money that Percy started a record store named- No Limit Records & Tapes. Soon he started to work as a producer for local artists like Tupac, Too Short, Rappin 4 Tay, and E-40.
