Why Did No Limit Records Breakup?


In 2004, the reorganized label had moved to Koch Records for distribution. From 2004 to 2005, The New No Limit Records issued new albums by Master P, Silkk the Shocker, C-Murder, Lil' Romeo and the reformed TRU.

These are just a few events that happened during the rise of No Limit Records. Percy “Master P” Miller had one of the most historic runs in Hip-Hop with his No Limit Records enterprise. Beginning in the early 1990s.

In 1999, Kane & Abel left from No Limit Records and started their own label entitled, Most Wanted Empire, later securing a new label deal with Elektra Records. On September 21, 1999, Kane & Abel released their fourth album, Rise to Power.

The Truth Behind Cash Money Vs No Limit Records Beef


Cash Money Records and No Limit Records were both two of the largest hip-hop powerhouses in New Orleans. What people don’t know is that the beef started before both camps really started blowing up.

Anybody that been a follower of deep dirty south music knows about the history or the turf rivalry that been going on between Cash Money and No Limit Records.

Artists such as U.N.L.V., and BG started off the war by going at Mystikal on songs like Drag Em in the River and Fuck Big Boy. The beef would take a turn for the worst on the street level when one of the artists was killed sitting in his car.

How Master P Survived A Decade Of Music

Mystikal waited until he released his 2nd album Mind of Mysikal to retaliate to the Cash Money disses and he did in a major way putting out one of the best songs of his career with Beware: The track not only showed that Mysikal wasn’t a punk but he can also get down and dirty with the best of them as well.

The Mind of Mystikal ended up opening up doors for Mystikal and his career as he would go on to find bigger success by signing to Master P and No Limit Records in 1997. Cash Money meanwhile would continue to build their underground following with releases from B.G, The Hot Boys, and Juvenile.

The beef would die down briefly but 1998 was the breaking year for both camps. Master P after all of the hard work that he’s put in with his consistent releases from himself and his camp would finally catch the big break as he released Ghetto D with his smash Make Em Say Uggh.

Cash Money Records signed a deal with Universal worth 30 million records along with keeping 85 % of their royalties and 50% of their ownership and publishing. This was the big break Cash Money needed and now with the big financial backing, They could finally compete with Master P and No Limit.

The rivalry started heating up once again starting with Juvenile’s album as they would take subliminal shots at No Limit on Rich Niggaz, UPT, and Welcome 2 the Nolia. No Limit artist retaliated with the songs Beef and The Empire where he speaks on the Industry and other labels hating on No Limit for their success.

1999 was the year Cash Money truly reached their peak and No Limit started to lose steam. P was focusing more on doing movies, managing athletes, and trying out for the NBA while in the meanwhile Cash Money was continue to steamroll into 1999 developed from the previous year.


Cash Money continued to crank out the hits while the No Limit sound was starting to fade away. P has never been the type to really battle on wax. He was more of a street type of guy or the type of guy that would send his soldiers to handle his dirty work like a mob boss.

The beef took a very controversial turn when this group called Da Wild Boyz released a diss song/Video on the whole Cash Money camp. Its been said that these guys were affiliated with No Limit and the song ended making some local noise.

TWUM Talks Lil Wayne


The beef would take more violent turn as there have been rumors of physical altercations between both camps. There have been instances where the beef went violent as C-Murder stuck a gun in juvenile’s mouth and had Cash Money artists tuck in their chains.

Both Mystikal and B.G. would end up having personal issues with P and Baby respectively. Mystikal got caught slipping and started sleeping with C-Murders girlfriend at the time Monica. Master P heard about it and sent his goon squad to stomp Mystikal out thus leading to his exit. B.G and juvenile on the other hand left Cash Money claiming that Baby stole royalty checks and tour money.

As for who won the overall rivalry, Many would say Cash Money since their still around but nevertheless this rivalry would go down in hip hop history as one of the most violent in hip hop.

CMR was responsible for launching the careers of Lil Wayne, Juvenile, B.G., Drake, Nicki Minaj, among others and NLR was responsible for catapulting the 504 Boyz, C-Murder, Fiend, Kane & Abel, Master P, Mia X, Mystikal, and Silkk the Shocker to stardom.

Turk was quick to state that no tensions existed between the artists on the respective labels, instead pointing the blame to label heads Master P and Bryan “Birdman” Williams.

Cash Money vs No Limit! How did Bird make his artists last longer than P's Nolimit artists? Some say Bird and some artists were heroin users and heavily caught up in the street life while still keeping secure hood and industry connections 1hunnid.

Now others say Master P was a ball playing finesser that went to the Bay area and learned some things about independent rap sheets and came back home and secured the start of the New Orleans major rap scene.

Who Is Your Favorite No Limit Soldier Rapper?


The No Limit Soldiers were the hardest rap group to hit music stores in the late 1990's. With Master P as the captain of the tank, who could knock off a group of warriors who released albums months after months?

New Orleans label No Limit Records dominated the 1990s. A no limit soldier is a guy/gal who can hold his/her own with the liquor and party all night. They don't give up until the floor claims them for the night.

Let's keep things pumping by naming your favorite rapper of al time from the rap group No Limit Soldiers. There is so many to choose from, so many that some may not even know the name of the artist. For those of us who were there back then to follow and see the legends to grow into who they are now, we know who made the hits and who didn't.


Other performers such as 6 Piece, Short Circuit, former Gambino Family members D.I.G. and Young Gunz, Popeye, Baby Soulja, Black Felon, Afficial, Samm, Currensy, Choppa and Krazy were brought aboard from 1999 to 2000, but some failed to create interest in themselves or in No Limit Records.

Master P” Miller had one of the most historic runs in Hip-Hop with his No Limit Records enterprise. With his brothers Sillkk The Shocker and C-Murder, P formed the group TRU and signed a number of California acts such as Ea-Ski and Lil Ric.

No Limit Records Responds To Young Junns Rant

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Pittsburgh’s local artist Junne has brought the worst of behavior to hip hop with his social media post that many have called a “clearly negative and desperate attack” for fame. Here’s the truth, Junne was found by No Limit Forever A&R Mr. Ross and was invited to come record music with the No Limit forever family and see if he would be a good f1t for them there at No Limit Forever. First of all P had nothing to do with this. Junne, like many independent artists showed up with many financial burdens.

Upon his arrival, while recording We provided him with money for meals, clothing, gas, countless flights to Seattle, Pittsburgh and money for many other endeavors of Junne’s with no contract. Junne was and is relatively unknown to the hip hop consumers. Burning up a No Limit Contract is like burning money, we only do 50/50 partnerships with artists while most labels only offer three sixty deals.

All P has ever asked of any artist was to invest their time. So if you call the studio a prison and prefer to party more than you put in work you can’t be serious about your career. Its funny how just last week he was posting all of this No Limit stuff up, but when mysteriously he posts up a video which was not authorized by No Limit Video director, he desperately turned it into his own video, and then he goes on a social media rant.

No Limit Forever A&R Director Mr. Bursh said “Junne was never signed to No Limit Forever Records and it’s truly disappointing that Junne has made it obviously clear that he is ungrateful for the opportunities that were offered him. The fact of the matter is Master P doesn’t benefit from working with unknown artists being he has already built a label that has sold over seventy five million records and he has dropped multiple mixtapes this year alone which makes him the hardest working artist on our label plus he’s the BOSS!

How Master P Survived A Decade Of Music


When Master P first entered the music industry, it was never about music. Percy Miller is a business man all the way around the board.

The No Limit Soldiers kept the music industry on lock by releasing new content every month. Upon arrival with his debut album "Bout It Bout It" Master P had the largest movie and soundtrack surfacing during that time.

Back in 2014, in an interview with VladTV, Master P recently claimed to have sold as many as 75 million albums during his tenure with No Limit Records. Having gained immense popularity in his musical career, Master P is also the CEO of P. Miller Enterprises. As of 2018, Master P's net worth is roughly $250 million.

Master P and the No Limit Soldiers was the hottest rap group until Cash Money records hit the scene to slow down their record sales. Master P created a hip-hop empire without registering on any mainstream radar. For several years, he operated solely in the rap underground.

Beginning in the early 1990s, the New Orleans native dominated the landscape for much of the decade with a staggering amount of product. Although many associate P with The Big Easy, he established the No Limit brand in Northern California.

Shifting the label to New Orleans, P signed Mystikal, Kane & Abel, Mia-X, the late Soulja Slim and former Death Row artist Snoop Dogg.

It wasn’t all music with Master P, as the mogul’s film company continues to release films independently in DVD format to this day. P has been engaged in several business ventures over the years and the introduction of the digital-only No Limit Forever record entity only solidifies he’s not going anywhere soon.

Young Junne Talks Master P And No Limit Records

Rapper Young Junne burns his No Limit record contract and blasts Master P for allegedly mistreating his artists and stealing his music on Instagram. Saturday, Young Junne posted an Instagram video of him addressing his issues with the 48-year-old then burning the pages.

June then wrote captioned his reasoning to back out of NoLimit saying that he has turned down the contract twice before, "I am not with NoLimit anymore. I am sorry to all the NoLimit fans who supported me, but I got tired of Master P taking/Stealing my music and using it for himself to attempt to become relevant again. This man called me yesterday asking me to sign a contract that I obviously turned down...twice. Master P tried to have me sign for 7 years! We all know my style of music and it already does not fit the NoLimit persona." he said.

The rapper then went on to address the mistreatment of his signed artists and claims that they were allegedly housed in his studio's basement, "One thing you should know about P is he surrounds himself around a bunch of "yes men" who are trained to not speak unless spoken to.

You got all the money in the world, but yet your artists and NoLimit affiliates are living like straight s***; all of the artist live in the basement of P's studio in what feels like prison cells with paper thin walls and no privacy," he wrote, "I thought when you work for someone you get paid for it and that was NOT the case, n***** were hungry, sleeping on floors, couldn't take showers, but yet P would walk in with his thousand dollar outfits & say alright let's do a video while we all looked f***** up!"

How much is Master P worth?

 


While most of Master P's work in the music industry has been behind the scenes in recent years, he's often considered one of the richest rappers, surpassing even Snoop Dogg in his reported net worth.


To understand how Master P became so wealthy, you have to look at his long career, beyond what he's done with music. He founded his first record label, No Limit Records, in 1991, signing big names like Snoop Dogg and Mystikal.


His music group, TRU, then took off that decade, releasing his own music outside of TRU and continuing work for his record label. In that same 10-year span, he also played for two professional basketball teams.

#CelebrityMatchUp Gucci Mane or Master P?


For our next debate in Celebrity Match Up, Who would you consider to be the best producer, rapper, or performer out of Gucci Mane or Master P? Many say this puts Gucci Mane on a higher pedestal than he should be on. What do you think. What are you thoughts on the match up?

Recent Article: Gucci Mane Rated The Best MC Of Our Time

Gucci Mane has a penchant for reeling in new talent. With budding acts such as Young Dolph, Ralo and Hoodrich Pablo Juan bubbling under his tutelage, Gucci is hoping to expand his 1017 Brick Squad roster by signing Lil Pump.

The charts reveal half a dozen No Limit acts almost completely unknown outside the rap world -- Silkk the Shocker and C-Murder (Master P's brothers), Sons of Funk, Young Bleed, Mystikal, Master P himself and Fiend.

 Gucci Mane is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and founder of 1017 Records. He played a big part in bringing trap music to a mainstream audience, along with T.I and Young Jeezy. As of 2019, Gucci Mane's net worth is roughly $12 million.

 From the mid to the late 1990s Master P and his No Limit Soldiers dominated the rap industry. Fortunately for Master P, he had a keen sense when it came to business and investing, because when he decided to focus on his basketball career again, a dream unfulfilled, the label and its record sales began to dwindle.

"It's certain people that could be leaders, and I think P is one of them." Slikk The Shocker explained about his brother, Master P. "He is a level-headed person, the kind of person you probably want to be a coach or lead the team."
