Music mogul Master P is making some less than friendly headlines this weekend as reports claim he owes over $200,000 to the state of California.
According to reports, Percy Miller’s debt dates back to the late 1990’s.
Master P will be doing his part to resolve California’s debt crisis … he just got hit with a giant tax bill. P — aka Percy Miller — was slapped with liens for unpaid California taxes in 1999 and 2000 … according to docs filed by the state tax board. The documents show he owes $237,027.41. The rapper/entrepreneur scored his biggest hit with “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” in 1998. (TMZ)
Last year, Master described himself as the best “hustler” in the hip-hop game.
“What’s up y’all, it’s the boss of all bosses, on a private plane right now,” Master P said in a video. “No Limit film, coming from the projects to be able to do what we do, it’s definitely a blessing. I thank the man up above. It’s my life, it’s a nice life, it’s a beautiful life. … I know a lot of y’all thought it was over for me. I just had to dig up the little money I had, take over this sh*t again. Never count me out. I am the best hustler in the game and I am the boss of all bosses.” (No Limit)

A few months back, Memphis rapper Lil Wyte named the music mogul in his SOHH Top 5 Dead or Alive list.
“Master P. Definitely. Master P hustled and grinded. His No Limit Records was dropping like two albums a month. At least I know for a fact that south of the Mason-Dixon line, everyone was saying, ‘Uhhhh, uhhhhh. Naaaa naaa naaaaa.’ They had Silkk the Shocker, Mia X, Mystikal and everyone. He’s one of the godfathers to how Southern rappers do it these days.” (SOHH Top 5 Dead Or Alive)
