Master P Announces “Hip-Hop History” Album Release DateMay 30, 2007 at 3:14 pm | Posted in Hip Hop News/Press Releases | Leave a comment
Master P announced that the release
date of the first father-son hip-hop album titled “Hip-Hop History”
will be September 4, 2007. The date was not chosen to compete with
Curtis Jackson’s delayed release, but rather to create balance in the
marketplace and give kids a freedom of choice. Master P will be
mixing it up with Chamillionaire, Silkk The Shocker and other rappers
that want to continue making street music but without the explicit
lyrics. “Hip-Hop History” will be a collaboration between Master P
and his son, Romeo, and will be produced by platinum producer Mike
Diesel, Chip, and Hood Noise.”This record isn’t about making money, it’s about providing a choice,
changing, and hopefully saving lives,” said Master P. All proceeds
from this record will go towards a foundation and scholarships for
underprivileged kids that want to further their education by going to
“Guaranteed Success,” Master P’s book on how people can achieve and
maintain financial success, will also hit bookstores on the same date.
Master P is challenging to the media to devote their time and
airwaves to the positive side of hip-hop. It would make a difference.
“Before we condemn others for making a change, we should take a look
in the mirror and ask ourselves, ‘what are we doing? Are we a part of
the problem, or are we a part of the solution?'” said Master P. “Take
A Stand Records, the movement.”
From the song “Let The Kids Grow”
I heart you flipped stacks
Yeah I did that.
My brother’s dead; cousins, friends
Can’t get them back.
And since I changed,
I guess they think I got sauce.
I guess you hard when you’re dead
Or locked behind bars.
Let the kids grow,
Let the kids dream.
