When Master P Ruled the World

         What ever happened to Master P? I saw his son Lil Romeo on a commercial for “Dancing with the Stars” the other day and I was deeply saddened. It almost completely ruined my day to see the heir to the once mighty No Limit Empire ballroom dancing on a show for B rate celebrities. It sounds crazy now but by the time I got to high school I thought the dynasty would never crumble. Boy was I wrong.

            It’s hard to imagine a man that was once so “Bout It, Bout It” disappear from the scene the way Master P did. Not after being at a house party the summer of the 9th grade and watching everybody go ballistic when “How you Do Dat Dere” came on, not after coming home on the bus after a varsity football game in the 10th grade listening to that Ghetto Dope album on a boom box and hearing the whole bus scream “Pass me them thangs! Let’s Get em!” in unison. Ahhh, my No Limit memories are endless. Back then I never would have believed that the dream team of Mystical, Snoop Dogg, C-Murda, and Master P would ever be disassembled but I guess things change. And in the end even a gold plated tank isn’t indestructible.

            Thanks for the memories P. The late 90’s wouldn’t have been the same without you.
