Hip hop fans and the Black community are excited about the possibility of hip hop mogul Percy “Master P” Miller potentially becoming an owner of the major sneaker brand, Reebok.
The $2.4 million dollar business move has fans on social media calling for an official biopic about P’s entire life. So what’s next for the rapper turned serial entrepreneur?
“The biopic will be coming next,” P tells ABC Audio. “I wanted people to know my story. So when you watch the biopic, you’re going to know this stuff is real. Then you’re gonna get a chance to go on a journey with the character and be like, ‘oh, I remember that story from the docu[-series]."”
“But being able to see it on a big screen and being able to know it, I think it’s just gonna make the biopic even bigger,” P continues. “So salute to all my fans for supporting the movement and thank you, guys.”
This past summer, BET gave fans a glimpse into Master P’s successful No Limit empire on the docu-series, No Limit Chronicles. The series documents his extraordinary journey from humble beginnings to rap pioneer, while building an empire that would change the scope of hip hop forever, starting with his independent label, No Limit Records. Since the nineties, the New Orleans emcee has expanded his empire into various business endeavors in fashion, sports and more, including Uncle P’s food products.
Casting for Master P’s biopic, Ice Cream Man: King of the South, began in 2017. But hopefully, fans will be able to see it come to fruition in 2021.
