aster P's open letter:

Curtis Jacksonís comment motivated me. There are a lot of immature people in the world. Oprah Winfrey is absolutely right, we need to grow up and be responsible for our own actions. I paid for Curtisís first rap tour through the south. He was such a humble guy at the time. Most artistsí mission is to sell records. My mission is to help save and change lives. Thereís a lack of knowledge and false information out there. I could actually say Little Jay and Rap-A-Lot Records inspired my successful career and I will always respect them no matter what. I wrote the blueprint for this generation. The only difference is thereís no more honor and respect in the game.

Think about it: people in jail are not writing letters proclaiming to come out and do the same thing that landed them there in the first place. People in the hood donít want to stay poor for the rest of their lives. They want to change. Parents that really love their kids would rather sacrifice their own lives so that their kids could make a change to have a better life and a better education. Iím glad that there are people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and organizations like the NAACP that are out there fighting for our rights and dignity. I have finally realized that EVERY person is either a part of the problem or part of the solution and that is why I have decided to take a stand! Iím reaching out to corporate America to form an alliance for the sake of putting the value back into our communities by rebuilding and developing schools and businesses.

First of all, itís simply disappointing to see people that are in a position to help make a change just sit back and entertain the negativity. Itís sad to see Steven Hill set all of these programming standards at BET, just to contradict himself for the sake of marketing dollars or artist performances in order to create the appearance of a successful award show. The record company with the biggest marketing check controls the music video stations so we need to go after the people who actually control these programming networks if we want real CHANGE.

I guess by taking a stand, my son and I will probably not be invited back to the BET Awards. But itís O.K. I got love for BET; there are a lot of good people there. Hopefully, this will help people to see the real changes that need to be made. My son and I will sacrifice our airtime because this is bigger than us, this issue desperately needed to be addressed a long time ago. There are four things that differentiate me from artists like Curtis Jackson. One, I can honestly admit that I was once part of the problem. Two, I donít want my son to grow up and be like me. I want him to be better and do better - and that is why he is taking the time to pursue a college degree.

Three, money donít make me, I make money. My goal is to educate our people in building generational wealth and knowing how important it is to own real estate.

Four, Iím a TRUE entrepreneur; my boss is God not Jimmy Iovine. From one brother to another, if you misunderstand my purpose you could always pick up the phone or talk to me in person. Iím trying to be part of the solution not the problem. The media thrives on entertaining, especially the negativity no matter what the cost. Iím praying for the brothers that are lost out there.

Throughout the years, I have lost so many relatives and friends. This year, Iíd like to focus on the comedy movies because we need to laugh more. The first movie that Iím producing is ďBlack SupamanĒ and thereafter will be ďThe Mail ManĒ starring Tony Cox and myself. Iím setting up a book tour for ďGuaranteed SuccessĒ and a Hip Hop Business class with financial expert Curtis Oakes for those seeking knowledge. I understand that I canít change the whole Hip Hop industry; Iím only trying to do my part. If youíre real, be a part of the positive movement with Take A Stand Records.com Look for the first single ďI Wanna Be Like YouĒ from the album ďHip Hop History.Ē Iím in negotiations with Wal-Mart and Target for direct distribution. Those are all examples of the positive difference I am trying to make in this industry.

Iím reaching out to my friends Shaquille OíNeal, Will Smith, Russell Simmons, Queen Latifah, Derek Anderson, Charles Barkley, Emmitt Smith, Beyonce, and Reverend Run to help contribute to this positive movement. I will also be holding a press conference with the president NAACP and will be able to answer any questions at that time. I am not asking any other hip-hop or gangsta rap artist change what they do; thatís how they make their money. Furthermore, I am not a preacher; Iím just telling the world what Iím doing and the changes that I am making because itís something I want to do. If thatís sending mixed signals to people then they need to deal with their own conscience first.

I've never been a big fan of P, I always felt that his music was hollow and as negative as anything else at that time. Don't get me wrong, Wu has it's negative moments too, but they've never strived for cred like No Limit did. As for his response to 50, I thought it was well put together and said. Even though I still feel that his change over to positivity is due to his lack of record sales, I'm glad he's made the change and I'm sure 50 will be doing the same thing when G-Unit is no longer a big deal.

That was a good speech by Master P. I'm glad to see he's gonna change his ways and stop doing negative music even though i like some of his albums from back in the day. He cracks me up when he says ughhhh. I'm also glad to hear his son Little Romeo is gonna go to college and get a education rather than just play basketball. Why ya'll dissing Al Sharpton? He's done a lot for blacks and he's a smart man. Ya'll are ignorant. If he ran for president, i'd vote for him because he would do more for blacks than a white president would.

It ain't that easy. When someone whose albums regularly go at least 6◊plat sons you, you know there gonna be on the streets some 6 millions of youngsters that are gonna agree with him completely. And if he responds, there is chances he'll turn some of them against 50... Not to mention that he stated his thought wit real hip-hop heads, to let them know that he thinks 50 is just a trash talk too.

Master P Responds To 50 Cent Diss, "My Boss Is God Not Jimmy Iovine"

Tuesday - May 22, 2007 by Anthony Roberts

http://sohh.com/images/artists/master_p_100x100_01.jpg In light of 50 Cent's (http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/11671#) recent comments directed toward Master P at a press conference for the upcoming BET Awards, P took time out to respond to the G-Unit (http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/11671#) boss' choice words.
As previously reported by SOHH, when a reporter in attendance at the press conference used Master P as an example of a hip-hop artist who is attempting to clean up his lyrics (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/11649), 50 responded by saying, "Well Master P doesn't sell CDs anymore. You can tell him I said it."
Now, the New Orleans- bred mogul (born Percy Miller) has a few words in return for 50.
"Curtis Jackson's comment motivated me. There are a lot of immature people in the world. Oprah Winfrey is absolutely right, we need to grow up and be responsible for our own actions," Miller said via a statement. "I paid for Curtis' first rap (http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/11671#) tour through the South. He was such a humble guy at the time. Most artists (http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/11671#)' mission is to sell records. My mission is to help save and change lives."
"There are four things that differentiate me from artists like Curtis Jackson. One, I can honestly admit that I was once part of the problem. Two, I don't want my son to grow up and be like me. I want him to be better and do better, and that is why he is taking the time to pursue a college degree. Three, money don't make me, I make money. My goal is to educate our people in building generational wealth and knowing how important it is to own real estate. Four, I'm a true entrepreneur; my boss is God not Jimmy Iovine. From one brother to another, if you misunderstand my purpose you could always pick up the phone or talk to me in person. I'm trying to be part of the solution not the problem."
In addition to directing his words at 50 Cent, P also took jabs at the media (http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/11671#) in general and BET specifically, for what he feels is their role in perpetuating the problem instead of taking steps to find positive images to portray.
"It's sad to see Stephen Hill set all of these programming standards at BET, just to contradict himself for the sake of marketing dollars or artist performances in order to create the appearance of a successful award show," P stated. "I guess by taking a stand, my son and I will probably not be invited back to the BET awards. But it's O.K. I got love for BET; there are a lot of good people there. Hopefully, this will help people to see the real changes that need to be made. My son and I will sacrifice our airtime because this is bigger than us, this issue desperately needed to be addressed a long time ago."
Undaunted by the criticism, P says that he will continue with his goal of cleaning up not just his own lyrical content and image but that of the entire hip hop (http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/11671#) community as a whole.
"I'm reaching out to my friends Shaquille O'Neal, Will Smith, Russell Simmons, Queen Latifah, Derek Anderson, Charles Barkley, Emmitt Smith, Beyonce, and Reverend Run to help contribute to this positive movement," he stated. "I am not asking any other hip-hop or gangsta rap artist change what they do; that's how they make their money. Furthermore, I am not a preacher; I'm just telling the world what I'm doing and the changes that I am making because it's something I want to do. If that's sending mixed signals to people then they need to deal with their own conscience first."

I remember when ďIm Bout ITí the movie came out, he had a record in the store every week, somebody from the camp. He realizes that business is business and money is money, but i respect the dude because he also realizes that there is a very, very thin line between exploitation and entertainment. I give him props. Regardless to what he has done, he is making a change, same for Russel Simmons, he ran Def Jam for years and now he realizes that changes need to be made, not because they aint makin money TRUST, they still gettin doe. But if u keep puttin on the gangsta image, u not hurtin nobody but your own people. Real RAp.

Now for 50 Cent, I donít like him and his music, and he too will fall in the face of the music business.

Once they start to make money, it starts to run their lives. There are a lot of people in need that dont have what we have, but others would like to go buy fancy cars, houses, and bling out to da fullest. That was real deep, and Iím behind Master P to da fullest. Always much luv for PÖ.4-sho

Now that heís trying to make a change for the better, I would definitely provide space for him. Everone has to make money to feed their family, why not choose a positive way. Donít down the brother for marketing his meal ticket, whatís yours? The key is to think positive, be positive and spread positivity. Last but definitely not least, keep GOD first in your life, obey his words, have faith in him and all things are possible!
Forever Blessed!

Man for real 50 needs to knock off all the shit talk. Sadly many young people look up to 50 cent, yet he only glamorizes violence and drugs, he is not a leader. That gorilla unit shit was all right for a month or so, but most of those G-Unit cats are corny as hell. Do your thing master P., fuck 50.

I commend P for taken action against $.48 and all in stance and furtha commend him as usuall for what he's doin for the communities - But I still can stand his music.

P's whole mission to censor hip hop is stupid artists should be able to say what they wat and stop gettin blamed for all the worlds problems.


word.

I REALLY respect P's approach to the problem tho im not for any type of censorship. I like how he's actually(and always has been) teaching kids the importance of business and making business cool. I was the first on this board to say that man's a genius and i was ATTTAACCKKKED for not thinking he's stupid because he doesn't rap about illuminati while working for white ppl.


as for Al Sharpton, my respect for him dwindles daily. He propagates himself as a leader in the black community and we're yet to see his contribution to anything, he, like almost all the black leaders today are more talk then action, and more negative then positive.



If the campaign he's waged against the media and Imus was as well funded and driven as a possible campaign for idk, lets say black land ownership, or business then i would consider him a leader.


as of now he's a media terrorist, scaring ppl into restricting speech.


what he doesn't realize is that ALL forms of black music have been viewed as "offense" out of simple racism. Dancing, African music, jazz, blues, rock and roll, disco, and now hip hop. In the end these forms always out do their white counterparts and become the dominate form of music that everything else comes from. Instead of celebrating that these "balck leaders" are completely denouncing what the younger generation has achieved...becoming the most influential single group in world wide pop culture.


In the end Sharpton needs to focus of ACTION and not just scaring people into saying nice stuff about black ppl. He didn't go after Jackson for his HimmyTown comment, and Sharpton as well as Farrakaun spew racist hate in a shocking majority of their speeches.

bascially, Sharpton needs to pull his skirt up.

its not even the worlds problems. P is right if your not part of the solution you are part of the problem. i agree with free speech and all that, but why wouldnt you want to help people out in general, let alone most rappers are black, and should/would want to help out other blacks.

glorifying murder, female abuse, drugs, ect. ect., these people are in a position to help everyone and especially the african american. instead of rapping about perpetuating the state of conditions step up and try and do something about it.

maybe 50 hastn grown up yet, and P has. in the end you can only have so much money and that shit gets old. if you can make a difference in your life, why not? im sure a lot of people on here wish that someone would have in theirs.

because remember, wu-tang is for the children.

Whitey you have to remember that most rappers aren't intelligent so that's why they continue to make ignorant songs because ignorance is all they know. Most rappers are from the ghetto and they see ignorance around them all the time so they don't wanna change and become positive people because they think if they become positive that their ignorant friends will laugh at them and diss them and they're afraid of that. Master P is a man because he finally decided that he needed to change and i'm glad he decided to stop being a negative rapper. 50 Cent will probably be ignorant until the day he dies. The only reason he became successful is because of beefing with other rappers and i think it's ignorant that a rapper thinks the only way he or she can be a successful artist is by dissing other rappers.
