Master P (born Percy Miller on April 29, 1970) is a rapper, known for his work as the head of No Limit and the rappers signed to it. He comes from New Orleans and attended the University of Houston on a basketball scholarship. However, he soon dropped out of college and moved to Richmond, taking business class at Merritt Junior College. Using his grandfather's inheritance, Master P formed No Limit as a record store, then turned it into a label.
Master P's debut album was The Ghetto Is Trying to Kill Me; it was followed by a compilation of No Limit artists called West Coast Bad Boyz. No Limit launched a string of hits, popular among mainstream audiences in spite of critical cries of a watered-down sound. Master P's own solo albums include 99 Ways to Die, Ice Cream Man, Ghetto Dope and Da Last Don. Miller then financed two films, I'm Bout It and I Got the Hook Up before trying to return to basketball. He returned to music with 1999's Only God Can Judge Me, followed by Ghetto Postage and Game Face. In April 2004, Master P released a 2-disk album Good Side Bad Side, which in a sense marked a return to the gangsta rap genre of the early days of No Limit Records. This 2-disk album was released under the New No Limit Records banner, distributed by Koch Records.
Miller, the father of Lil' Romeo, is also the brother of his labelmates C-Murder and Silkk Tha Shocker.
Master P has since gone on to have his own flavor of rapsnacks potato chips: platinum barbecue.
As well as rapping, Master P played a supporting role in Hollywood Homicide as the owner of a nightclub, and has appeared in several other films.
In 2003, Master P was cast in the Nickelodeon series Romeo!, with Lil' Romeo.
In July, 2004, Miller was cut from the summer roster of the Denver Nuggets basketball team.

Miller, the father of Lil' Romeo, is also the brother of his labelmates C-Murder and Silkk Tha Shocker. In 2005 Moby released "Lift Me Up", a single from his album Hotel, which featured, in addition to numerous remixes, UK company's Digimpro software. This 2-disk album was released under the New No Limit Records banner, distributed by Koch Records. He owns a small restaurant and coffee shop called TeaNY, where he occasionally waits tables. In April 2004, Master P released a 2-disk album Good Side Bad Side, which in a sense marked a return to the gangsta rap genre of the early days of No Limit Records. As of June 2004, Moby, a vegan non-denominational Christian and self-proclaimed simpleton (for his often sincere and idealistic political assessments), lives in New York City's Little Italy, where he's lived for a decade in a small apartment in a five-story building across the street from David Bowie. He returned to music with 1999's Only God Can Judge Me, followed by Ghetto Postage and Game Face. In 2002, Moby briefly had a television show on MTV, Seņor Moby's House of Music, which focused mostly on more obscure electronic music.
Miller then financed two films, I'm Bout It and I Got the Hook Up before trying to return to basketball. In 2001 Moby also earned the ire of Eminem after calling his music misogynist and homophobic; Eminem later satirized Moby in "Without Me," calling him a "fag" and questioning his relevance with the claim, "Nobody listens to techno!" The two were in a confrontation at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, though Moby expresses respect for Eminem's musical talents. Master P's own solo albums include 99 Ways to Die, Ice Cream Man, Ghetto Dope and Da Last Don. A second tour was organized for the following year. No Limit launched a string of hits, popular among mainstream audiences in spite of critical cries of a watered-down sound. It was a popular touring rock festival that featured an eclectic range of musical genres . Master P's debut album was The Ghetto Is Trying to Kill Me; it was followed by a compilation of No Limit artists called West Coast Bad Boyz. In 2001, Moby founded the Area:One Festival.
Using his grandfather's inheritance, Master P formed No Limit as a record store, then turned it into a label. In a 2005 posting on his web site, Moby theorized that his eagerness to license his music is a result of "growing up in poverty."  (http://www.moby.com/cms/viewdiary.asp?Diary_ID=2186&ViewType=Current). However, he soon dropped out of college and moved to Richmond, taking business class at Merritt Junior College. In addition to fame garnered through its licensing, Play is also notable for its extensive sampling of old blues recordings conducted by Alan Lomax. He comes from New Orleans and attended the University of Houston on a basketball scholarship. The album's tracks eventually were accepted in various radio formats, but because of Play's extensive licensing, the album could have been financially successful even without radio play. Master P (born Percy Miller on April 29, 1970) is a rapper, known for his work as the head of No Limit and the rappers signed to it. Mainstream reviewers raved about his talents on the album (released on the much smaller V2 Records) though some early fans were let down. The album has 18 tracks on it and was the first album in history to have all of its tracks commercially licensed: "Porcelain," for instance, appeared on a TV commercial for Bailey's Irish Cream and Nordstrom; "Find My Baby" was on a commercial for American Express featuring golfer Tiger Woods.
After a decade's worth of music, Moby's breakthrough album was 1999's Play. However, both Animal Rights and I Like to Score were commercially unsuccessful and Moby and Elektra parted company. Among those tracks was an updated version of the James Bond theme. In 1997, he released I Like to Score, a collection of music included in movies.
He followed that up with a hard rock/electronic album called Animal Rights in 1996. His first album for Elektra Records was Everything Is Wrong, which earned early critical praise and minor notoriety. He used to be in a punk band the Vatican Commandos, but abandoned punk in 1989 for electronic music. Moby plays keyboard, guitar, and bass guitar, and expresses mild irritation at the assumption that everything on his newer albums is a sample.
Several of his songs have also found their way into major motion pictures, most notably the ambient piece "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters," which was featured in the 1995 motion picture Heat. Most recently, his song "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" was used in the climax of the documentary film Peaceable Kingdom. Indeed, in 1997 Moby released a compilation of tracks used in and inspired by the cinema called I Like to Score. Arguably most famous among his peers for the track "Go," a progressive track using the string line from "Laura Palmer's Theme" from the TV show Twin Peaks, Moby is also well known for the singles "Next is the E," "South Side" with Gwen Stefani, and "We Are All Made of Stars." Moby has released singles under the names Voodoo Child, Barracuda, UHF, The Brotherhood, DJ Cake, Lopez, and Brainstorm/Mindstorm. Moby's real name is Richard Melville Hall (born September 11, 1965 in Harlem, New York City) - he takes his performing name from his relative Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick. Moby is an American electronic musician.
