Master P Plans to Feed One Million People This Holiday Season
New Orleans' original rap mogul Master P has announced an initiative to feed and clothe at least one million people this holiday season. Despite a rap repertoire that includes tracks like 'Ghetto D,' a crack recipe with beats, Master P publicly renounced his gangster lifestyle in 2006 to focus on more humanitarian goals. He is partnering with the One Million Gifts charity, an organization which helps provide resources for the homeless, mentally and physically disabled and people suffering from addictions.
P, born Percy Miller, founded No Limit Records in 1994 and has since sold over 75 million albums worldwide."Eight years ago, I realized that education saves lives and being charitable and helping those in need has given me a profound happiness in my life, as there is nothing more rewarding than bringing smiles to children who are less fortunate," Miller said, explaining his decision to pursue more charitable work. "OneMillionGifts.org specializes in these areas. Therefore, I'm honored to be a part of this team."
One Million Gifts describes itself as an organization of "ordinary people doing extraordinary things." To that end, Miller says he will leave no stone unturned in his quest to feed and clothe, reaching out to the many friends and contacts he's acquired over the years, ordinary or otherwise.
