Master P Talks Lack Of Respect For Black Businessmen

Master P wasn’t on Forbes recent list of wealthiest rappers, but make no mistake — Percy Miller got BANK. And, just before his new movie The Hook Up 2 drops July 12, he’s talking about building wealth as an artist and being a Black businessman.

From Page Six:

“We have to look at each other for expertise,” he told Page Six. “But instead we just sign on the dotted line when a man you never met in a suit appears.”

He’s even happy to act as an adviser, but, “When you come ask me for some help . . . I will say, ‘If I get this deal closed for you, I want 10%,’ and then you say, ‘No.’ But if [it’s just a guy in a suit] . . . they sign right off.”

As far as his business outlook: “Some stock markets go up, then go down — but if you have the knowledge, you will survive it and bounce back,” he said. “I’m like instant grits . . . just add water.”

Master P then made a comment about how race affects business.

“If I was white, I think people would respect me more. People are not afraid to give those other cultures a percentage,” he told the publication.

Do you think he makes a fair point?
