Percy “Master P” Miller:No Limit Records (Kandy Paint Records Synopsis)

  

Master P (aka Percy Miller) was born on April 29, 1970 in New Orleans. He used money from a malpractice settlement to open No Limit Records, a store which became a label. His artists crowded the hip-hop charts in the late 90s and Master P expanded his empire into film, sports management, and socially conscious rap. In 1998, Forbes ranked him 10th on its list of highest-grossing entertainers.

Young Entrepreneur

Rapper and hip-hop mogul Master P was born Percy Miller on April 29, 1970, in New Orleans, Louisiana. His parents divorced when he was very young, and Miller and his four siblings were raised by their father in New Orleans’ Calliope Projects, a neighborhood infamous for its high crime rate. “We had a house full of people and an empty refrigerator,” Master P recalls.

“I was so hungry that my stomach was literally cramping.” He says that the turning point in his childhood came at age 16, when he saw a former resident of the Calliope Projects, who had left to become an insurance salesman, return to the neighborhood in a Mercedes-Benz. Determined to become a legitimate businessman, Master P began his first entrepreneurial venture as a high-school senior, selling early-model cell phones throughout New Orleans. “No one in my family could find a job at the time,” he remembers. “I couldn’t find one either, so I created my own.”

Master P attended Warren Easton High School in New Orleans, starring as a point guard on the basketball team. After graduating in 1987, he briefly enrolled at the University of Houston to play basketball. However, he dropped out just months into his freshman year and transferred to Merritt Junior College in Oakland, California. He was studying business at Merritt when his grandfather passed away, and Master P received $10,000 as part of a malpractice settlement awarded his family due to the circumstances of the death. Armed with nothing but the settlement money and two years of business classes, Master P opened his own record store, No Limit Records, in nearby Richmond, California.

Record Label

Master P used his record store to scope out sales trends in the hip-hop industry. After perceiving an unfulfilled demand for more hard-edged gangster rap music, he expanded No Limit into a record label and self-produced his own debut album, Get Away Clean, in 1991. Neither Get Away Clean nor Master P’s 1992 release, Mama’s Bad Boy, sold well, and he decided to move No Limit Records back to his hometown of New Orleans.

There Master P achieved his first real success with the 1994 album, The Ghettos Tryin’ to Kill Me, and its 1995 follow-up, 99 Ways to Die. Operating without a national distribution deal, Master P promoted the albums via word-of-mouth to independent music stores, managing to sell some 250,000 copies.

Spurred on by the success of these early releases, Master P signed a distribution contract with Priority Records in 1996. He released his next album, Ice Cream Man, later that year and it peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard album charts.

For the next several years, No Limit Records dominated the hip-hop industry, churning out a slew of hit records.

By 1997, No Limit Records had expanded to include a bevy of prominent hip-hop stars, including C-Murder, Silkk the Shocker, Mia X and Snoop Dogg. During its most productive years (1997-99), No Limit released 46 albums that frequently crowded the top of the Billboard charts. Asked to explain this massive outpouring of music, Master P answered,

“It’s a business to me. I’m in it to make money. It’s work. It’s how I get paid.”

Business Empire

Master P capitalized on the success of No Limit Records to expand into a host of other ventures. He explained his business model: “You spread out because you never know when it’s going to end. Business is like a seesaw going up and down. When one goes down, I have the other one going up. You have to think like that if you want to survive.”

Master P’s first new enterprise was No Limit Films. In 1997, he personally funded and produced a low-budget docudrama called I’m Bout It, earning an enormous profit when the film proved a surprise hit. This success landed No Limit Films a national distribution deal with Miramax.

In another surprising extension of his entertainment empire, Master P founded No Limit Sports Management in 1997. His marquee client was running back Ricky Williams, a highly touted University of Texas football star drafted by Master P’s hometown New Orleans Saints in 1999. Represented by No Limit, Williams signed an incentive-laden contract worth far less than his market value.

The contract was harshly criticized by other sports management agencies, with one agent calling it “a mockery of the business.” As many predicted, Williams failed to achieve his most lucrative incentives and fired No Limit in favor of new representation.

At the same time as he entered the sports management business, Master P also plunged into the pro sports world as a basketball player. In 1998, he publicly announced his goal of playing in the NBA. As a first stepping-stone, he joined the Fort Wayne Fury, a team in the minor-league Continental Basketball Association. He later earned tryouts with the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors, greatly exceeding most expectations but ultimately failing to land on an NBA roster.

Despite these setbacks, at the close of the 1990s Master P sat atop a self-made entertainment empire of grand scale. No Limit Records sold 75 million albums during the decade, and in 1998 Forbes magazine ranked Master P 10th on its list of highest-grossing entertainers, estimating his annual income at $57 million. Rapper and friend Ice Cube called Master P “one of the best businessmen I’ve ever run across,” and record executive Tony Draper declared him “a young successful black C.E.O. who has the intelligence to take the rap business to the next level.”

New Directions

But in the early years of the 21st century, Master P suddenly reversed the course of his career, abandoning gangster rap in favor of social activism.

He says that his son, Percy Romeo Miller Jr., born in 1989 and known by the stage name Romeo, inspired his sudden career turnabout. Master P remembers driving with his son one afternoon when one of his own songs came over the car stereo, and he felt compelled to turn down the volume so that his son would not hear the inappropriate lyrics.

“I make so much money off of hip-hop that, you know, I was once the part of the problem,” he says. “And now, I want to be a part of the solution.” In 2007,

Master P and Romeo co-founded a new record label, Take a Stand Records, to promote hip-hop music with no profanity and a positive message. Master P has also established a series of P. Miller Youth Centers to counsel and educate underprivileged youth in cities throughout America. He released his first book, Guaranteed Success When You Never Give Up, in 2007.

To describe a life that has seen him change from impoverished child, to gangster rap hero, to entertainment mogul, to urban youth activist, the metaphor Master P prefers is that of a soldier. “I’ll fight,” he says. “I would die for this: it’s all I’ve got. If I don’t have this, I’m going back to the ghetto. And I don’t want to go back because I didn’t want to be there in the first place.”

Music career

Music beginnings & Ghetty Green

Houston’s debut studio album Ghetty Green did not propel him to superstar status, it did establish him within the growing southern hip hop community.

2000-01 Mista Don’t Play: Everythangs Workin’

After serving 4 years for a gun charge Houston broke onto the mainstream hip hop scene after providing the hook for Three 6 Mafia’s hit single “Sippin’ on Some Syrup” in 2000. Houston released his breakthrough second studio album Mista Don’t Play: Everythangs Workin’, the most successful album ever for an independent artist on the Hypnotize Minds label. The album went to sell over 900,000 copies making it certified platinum.

2007-11: Walkin’ Bank Roll, Real Recognize Real & Loud Pack

The lead single from the album was “Don’t Call Me No Mo'” featuring Three 6 Mafia. His 6th studio album Real Recognize Real was his first major release for the label Asylum Records. The album featured the hit single “Keep It Hood” with special guest OJ da Juiceman. It debuted at #8 on the Top Rap Albums Chart, with about 8,800 copies sold in the first week of release.

Legal issues

In 2001, he was arrested for parole violation after a pair of revolvers were discovered in his vehicle during a traffic stop. That March, he was sentenced to four years in prison on two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm.

 

White Rappers Are Dominating In The Social Media Arena Says Social Media

 

Nineteen-year-old Wiz Khalifa protégé Mac Miller drops his debut Blue Slide Park today and what’s more notable than the young Pittsburgh natives’ swift ascent to notoriety is his place as the latest white rapper to make a run with a social media onslaught.

Prevailing opinion may be he’s the latest to sprout from Eminem’s hip-hop tree but closer examination will tell you a story of a door, undoubtedly opened up by the prolific hip-hop icon, but not necessarily the influence you’d imagine.

Miller, for one, carved out his lane by being a social media dynamo instead of an underground rapper building buzz behind epic battles in seedy venues.

From Facebook to YouTube to Twitter, Miller has conquered them all. Building a certifiably deep fan base with high-energy, easy to digest music that can easily be boxed and sold as “frat rap” but a flow that can be just as spot on when the beat and occasion call for it.

The honesty of his sound really sticks out, while admittedly not being nearly as stirring and deep as his counterparts are. He’s the kid who rocked the ‘burbs first and slowly won over the streets mixtape after mixtape.

In his current Billboard cover story, the rapper wasn’t ashamed to admit reaching for something soul stirring and emotional wasn’t his lane, telling the magazine, “I’ll never pretend I have an inspiring story like certain people. There are people here to tell inspiring stories, people like Kendrick Lamar or Big K.R.I.T. who have deep messages about things that…I can’t say. It’s not my place to say,” Miller said.

“I just make music that’s hip-hop. I’m not here to be a teenybopper sensation. I make music because I love making music. So whoever wants to love it, that’s who I want as my fans.”

I don’t know if the same can be said about some of his ‘white’ rapper peers. While the likes of Kreayshawn, Yelawolf, Asher Roth and Machine Gun Kelly have all piqued mainstream ears, and artists like Aesop Rock and El-P have owned underground circles. None have gotten 40-second video responses from people like Donald Trump declaring them “the next Eminem”, the way Miller did.

If anything, all have ran into the wall of being ‘the white rapper’ when most would’ve assumed the coincidence of race would’ve been advantageous.

For Kreayshawn, the n-word that derailed her onslaught on the mainstream after “Gucci Gucci” blew up virally.

Yelawolf, whose backstory is probably the closest of the bunch to Eminem’s, has had to leap hurdles of credibility and being so Southern, despite his deal with Eminem’s Shady/Aftermath imprint.

Asher Roth saw the heights of “I Love College” earn him the “frat rap” label despite a Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama and Don Cannon and really lyrical side projects with artists like Lupe Fiasco but that initial success has made some shy away from his dope, newer releases (like the Chuck Inglish produced “In The Kitchen”) because they can only see him one way.

Miller hasn’t hit that snag and his entrepreneurial spirit in the lead up to his release today has been masterful.

By releasing tracks when he hit certain social media milestones, Miller grew his fan base while keeping long-time fans engaged because of the new music that was at stake. He pretty much had them do the work for him because they were so hungry to hear more. And even if that doesn’t translate into sales, an active following of over 1 million on Twitter and 1.4 million of Facebook but him in a social media strata of movie stars and TMZ regulars.

His energy is totally Beastie Boys minus a lot of the edge. Sure, he raps about weed but at the core, his music is harmless, his shows are teen-friendly and major labels – who’ve tried to get in on the hype — are watching to see what comes from this.

What is encouraging and noteworthy is the current crop of white rappers seems cognoscente but not caught up in the gimmick that can grow from being in their shoes. They’re constructing their own projects and may poke fun from time-to-time about just how different they are from the bulk of their peers in the game but they aren’t so consumed by it. And as far as having a leg up on the competition, that’s minimal but they’ve certainly figured out how to milk their social media presence better than most.

They Cant Keep A Real Nigga Down! Kandy Paint Records Give A Insight On Rapper Gucci Mane

 

Gucci Mane has enjoyed writing poem since he was in elementary school but did not begin rapping until he was 14. In 2005, he released an indie album “Trap House” which featured “Icy”, a successful duet with Young Jeezy. Despite the success of the song, the two didn’t follow up their collaboration with another duet as they were involved in disputes over the rights to the single, which eventually caused a rift between the two artists.

In that same year, Gucci was charged with murder after one of her companions fired at a group of men who were trying to steal his trademark “So Icey” chain. He pleaded not guilty, reasoning only having a self defense. While the case, which was eventually dropped in January 2006 due to insufficient evidence, was still on investigation, he was hit by another legal issue, cited of assaulting a nightclub promoter and granted a six-month prison sentence for the assault. He was released from jail in the same month of his murder case was dismissed.

Nine months after being a free man, Gucci returned to the studio to make new music for his second studio album “Hard to Kill” which was dropped in October. …

The album peaked at No. 4 on Billboard Top Independent Albums chart and cracked Billboard Hot 200, climbing to No. 76. The selling number of the album slightly surpassed its predecessor with 165,000 copies.

2007 saw Gucci releasing two studio albums, one is a major-label release under Atlantic Record and the other is an indie effort. He brought forward the indie album “Trap-A-Thon” in October and followed it up with a major-label record “Back to the Trap House” two months later. In “Back to the Trap House”, he collaborated with Lil’ Kim, Ludacris, The Game, Trey Songz, LoToya Luckett and Shawnna.

In November 2009 during when he planned to release another studio album, Gucci was sentenced to 12 months in jail for violating probation which was stemmed from the 2006 assault case. However, he thought there was nothing to worry about saying, “It was a challenge for me. I’m just happy my team kept my music going strong for me. And I’m happy I recorded so many records so people could hear me.”

His second major release, “The State vs. Radric Davis”, is released across U.S. on December 8. He gets support from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Keyshia Cole, Plies

Cam’ron and Soulja Boy among others as featured guests. “Murder Was the Case”, his fourth indie album, meanwhile, arrived in May in the same year.

I’m Kendrick Lamar aka A Benz Is To Me Just A Car (Don’t Kill My Vibe Premiere)

Kendrick Lamar 2012.jpg

Kendrick Lamar Duckworth[1] (born June 17, 1987), simply known as Kendrick Lamar, is an American hip hop recording artist from Compton, California. Initially signed to independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment, in 2012 Lamar and the label signed a joint venture deal with Aftermath and Interscope Records. Lamar is also a member of West Coast hip hop supergroup, Black Hippy, along with fellow California-based rappers and label-mates Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul.[3]

He first gained major attention after the release of his fourth mixtape, Overly Dedicated, in 2010. The next year, he released his first independent album to critical acclaim, Section.80 (2011), released exclusively through iTunes and instantly ranked as one of the top digital hip hop releases of the year.[4] Early in his career, before releasing his major label debut, Lamar amassed a large internet following, and had already worked with Dr. Dre, Game, Drake, Young Jeezy, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, E-40, Warren G and Lil Wayne, among other popular artists.

His major label debut studio album good kid, m.A.A.d city, was released October 22, 2012 to universal acclaim. The album spawned the Top 40 hits “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and “Poetic Justice”. The album was later certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In early 2013, MTV crowned Lamar the No. 1 Hottest MC in the Game, on their well known annual list.[5]

Life and career

1987–2009: Early life and musical beginnings

Kendrick Lamar was born in Compton, California, to parents from Chicago, Illinois.[6] In 1995, at the age of eight, Lamar witnessed his idols Tupac Shakur and Dr. Dre, film the music video for their hit single “California Love”, a very significant moment in Lamar’s life.[7] As a teenager Lamar attended Centennial High School in Compton, where he was a straight A student.[6][8]

In 2003, at the age of sixteen, Lamar released his first mixtape, Youngest Head Nigga In Charge, under the moniker K-Dot.[9] The mixtape garnered enough local attention for Lamar to get a record deal with Carson-based independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment.[9] He then released a twenty-six track mixtape two years later titled Training Day (2005).[10] From 2006 through 2007, Lamar, alongside other young West Coast rappers such as Jay Rock and Ya Boy, had opened for fellow West Coast rapper Game. Lamar, under his pseudonym K-Dot, was also featured on Game’s songs “The Cypha” and “Cali Niggaz”.[11][12]

In 2008, Lamar made a brief cameo appearance in the music video for Top Dawg label-mate Jay Rock’s debut single, “All My Life (In the Ghetto)”. More recognition came Lamar’s way after a video of a Charles Hamilton show surfaced, where Hamilton went in the crowd to battle fellow rappers in attendance. Lamar did not hesitate and began rapping a verse over Miilkbone’s “Keep It Real”, that would later appear on a track titled “West Coast Wu-Tang”.[7]

After receiving a co-sign from American hip hop superstar Lil Wayne, Lamar released his third mixtape in 2009 titled C4, heavily themed around Wayne’s Tha Carter III LP.[13] Soon after, Lamar decided to drop K-Dot as his stage name and go by his birth name. This resulted in him releasing a self-titled EP, Kendrick Lamar, in late 2009.[14] In 2009, Lamar also formed Black Hippy, a supergroup with label-mates and fellow California-based rappers Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q.

2010–2011: Overly Dedicated

In 2010, he toured with Tech N9ne and Jay Rock on The Independent Grind tour.[9] On September 4, 2010 Lamar unveiled the cover art for Overly Dedicated, designed by RedefineCreativity.[15] On September 14, 2010 he released the visuals for “P&P 1.5”, a song taken from Overly Dedicated, featuring his Black Hippy cohort Ab-Soul.[16] On September 14, 2010, Lamar released Overly Dedicated to digital retailers under Top Dawg Entertainment, and later on September 23, released it for free online.[17][18] The highly acclaimed mixtape includes a song titled “Ignorance Is Bliss”, in which Lamar glorifies gangsta rap and street crime, but ends each verse with “ignorance is bliss”, giving the message “we know not what we do;”[19][20] it was this song specifically that made legendary hip hop producer Dr. Dre want to work with Lamar, after watching the song’s music video on YouTube.[21] This led to Lamar working with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg on Dre’s Detox album and him considering signing to Dre’s label, Aftermath Entertainment.[9][22][23] In December 2010, Complex spotlighted Lamar in an edition of their “Indie Intro” series.[24]

2011–2012: Section.80

In January 2011, Lamar stated his next project was 90% finished.[9] In early 2011, Lamar was included in XXL Magazine’s annual Freshman Class, and was featured on the cover alongside fellow up and coming rappers CyHi the Prynce, Meek Mill, Mac Miller, Yelawolf, Lil B, Big K.R.I.T. and Diggy Simmons, among others.[25] On April 11, 2011 Lamar announced the title of his next full-length project to be Section.80, and revealed he would release it’s lead single the following day.[26] As promised, on April 12, 2011 Lamar released “HiiiPoWeR”, the album’s first promotional single, of which the concept was to further explain the HiiiPoWeR movement.[27] The song was produced by fellow American rapper J. Cole, with whom Lamar began closely working with at the time; the song marked their first of many collaborations to come.[27]

On the topic of whether his next project would be an album or a mixtape, Lamar answered: “I treat every project like it’s an album anyway. It’s not gonna be nothing leftover. I never do nothing like that. These are my leftover songs y’all can have ’em, nah. I’m gonna put my best out. My best effort. I’m tryna look for an album in 2012.”[28] In June 2011, Lamar released “Ronald Reagan Era (His Evils)”, acut from Section.80, featuring Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA.[29] On July 2, 2011, Lamar released Section.80, his first independent album, to critical acclaim.

The video was directed by Vashtie Kola who had this to say of the video: “Inspired by “A.D.H.D”s dark beat and melancholy lyrics which explore a generation in conflict, we find Kendrick Lamar in a video that illustrates the songs universal and age-old theme of apathetic youth. Shot in New York City during the sweltering July Summer heat, “A.D.H.D” is the third video to be released from Kendrick Lamar’s album Section.80.[32] In October 2011, Lamar appeared alongside rappers B.o.B, Tech N9ne, MGK and Big K.R.I.T., in a hip hop cypher at the BET Awards.[33] In October, Lamar also partnered with Windows Phone, and crafted an original song, titled “Cloud 10”, with producer Nosaj Thing, to promote their new product.[34] In the second half of 2011, Lamar appeared on several high-profile albums including Game’s The R.E.D.

Mississippi Sipp- Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Black Dog Puna- Da President
Big Mook- Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Before anyone in the Universe becomes confused,misled,angry or at a disbelief at anyone on the planet outside of Mississippi Sipp aka Sipp Ward which is the same person claiming to be the founder of “Kandy Paint Records” and/or “Candy Paint Records” as a company/independent record label. See due to certain laws per say and certain STATE and some FEDERAL restrictions when holding a Trademark or a LLC it has to be one spelling or the other but in my Life since May 2005 of creating this brand and record label all based off of a Kandy Coated Crown Victoria that I had customized which is where the label name originated from due to almost 90% of the women I would meet would instantly nickname me “Kandy Paint” so as a up and coming Rap Artist,Main Artist on the label and C.E.O. I decided to run with the modern day brand name “Kandy Paint Records” hence “Candy Paint Records” since it represents an entire culture in the south and not just Mississippi. The entire Southern Hip-Hop and Street culture period! Since May 2005 the company has grown and is gaining tons of global,international and internet Notoriety! As of today I vow to become the “ambassador” for Leland,Mississippi so that myself, my hometown culture,language(slang),traditions and personalities wont get confused or misled in the world. So far I Mississippi Sipp have represented for Leland,Mississippi my hometown to the fullest and more to come. Kandy Paint Records Terry Terell Brisco, aka Mississippi Sipp, began his career by distributing his records through a small Leland,Ms Area record label. He started out in Arlington,Virginia where his mother resided. Despite being on the East Coast, Mississippi Sipp maintained his connections to the South through his Grandmother and Uncles who remained in Leland,Mississippi. Terry “Mississippi Sipp” Brisco partnered up with his lifetime friends and family Big Mook(Chief Financial Officer) Black Dog Puna (Da President),Reign (his half cousin) & Marchello “Clak” Wright. Later he and Big Mook (along with his uncle Iceburg) went on to form the group KPR. During the early 2000′s, Mississippi Sipp released a few solo albums Cadillac Dope Boy & Tawk Real Da Album, with very much success. However, Mississippi Sipp was able to garner notoriety for himself and Kandy Paint Records in the South by collaborating with various mississippi artists and through his compilation albums One Percenters,Pimp Tendency & Kandy Paint Records 5 Stars. Following his success on the East Coast in May 2005, Mississippi Sipp decided the time was right to expand his label. After signing several digital online deals and a Internet buzz thats so big. Mississippi Sipp moved Kandy Paint Records and set up shop in Leland,Mississippi. He brought his sister,management and entourage. In 2014, Kandy Paint Records plan to sign a huge digital distribution deal with Apple to distribute Kandy Paint Records music. Mississippi Sipp will maintain ownership of all of his master recordings,publishing and his studio. He also became the label’s main artist, and also will releasing the album “Pimp Tendencies” later this year. By 2014, Kandy Paint Records will grow to consist of Mississippi Sipp, Big Mook, Black Dog Puna,Reign,& Clake. Mississippi Sipp also writes,produce,direct,act and screen write. This started his movie career which will lead to films such as Rise 2 Fame & Welcome 2 Leland. Big Mook, Golden Boy, debuted at Number One in the streets.Many of the Kandy Paint Records artists will reach longevity and complete other projects. By 2014 it appears that the focus of Kandy Paint Records was unlimited to the Leland Mississippi family. This notion was further strengthened with the release of his artist, Black Dog Puna self titled debut album. On January 12,2014, the company buzz was so large that they literally had the Internet going buzzing. Mississippi Sipp realized it is more sensible to continue to run Kandy Paint Records and organize and finance the company with profits from Digital Downloads & Club Appearance sales plus the assistance from a few private investors. He named his publishing company Kandy Paint Content”. By 2015, the organized label has full ownership. Kandy Paint Records look forward to developing its very own distribution company, Black Dog Entertainment.
