Master P is most known for his music and business savvy mentality. While the younger generation may view Jay Z as the successful rapper to business man story, it was the New Orleans native that helped create that trend. Two weeks after the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton dominated the box office, Master P is preparing for his own biopic, King of the South. Partnering with is oldest son, Romeo Miller, the rapper is working on bringing his inspiration and interesting story to theaters. He stopped by 105.1’s The Breakfast Club to introduce his new energy drink, talk about his biopic, and critique NWA which he says portrayed Eazy-E in the wrong light.

Charlamagne in His Biopic:
What’s good about this. When you make movies, it has to have the right character. The character that Charlamagne is playing is the guy that saved my life when I was five years old.
