The wealth of Master P has been put somewhere between $100 to $200 million. While he became known as a rapper, his money grew when he expanded to other entertainment related ventures.
Early Life and Career
Master P was born Percy Miller in New Orleans in 1969. After going to Houston University, he departed to the West Coast. He set up a record store called No Limit Records. The money came from a medical malpractice suit which killed his grandfather.

While he continued to release million selling albums, his label also produced several well known rappers. Among them were Snoop Dogg, Soulja Slim and UGK. Miller’s brothers also worked under his label. His offspring Romeo and Young V also release albums under the company.
The Rapper / Entrepreneur
His 1994 album The Ghettos are Tryin to Kill Me! was one of the biggest sellers of his No Limit record label. However, he also went into the movies. His debut was I’m Bout It. It was a success, topping the Billboard Video charts.
The accompanying soundtrack also made it to the top of the Billboard R&B. One of the reasons why the wealth of Master P continued to grow were his singles. Even though he was into other businesses, his songs kept making the charts.
His No Limit Record became No Limit Entertainment. Apart from records, his company ventured into clothing, movies and sports. The company also went into real estate and travel. Miller also created a new label, Take a Stand. The label is noteworthy for signing up artists only if they use clean lyrics.
