No Limit Records head Master P has shared his thoughts on late music icon Prince’s legacy following his shocking death last week.
The Louisiana native acknowledged the amount of respect Prince did not receive prior to his passing.
“Prince the man,” Master P said in an interview. “Definitely sad to see him go so soon – I’m just gonna keep it 100. A lot of people called Prince ‘weirdo’ and all that other stuff even though he’s one of the greatest entertainers in the world but it took him to die for everybody to talk about how great he is. I think there’s a lot of genuine stuff but I also think people, once somebody’s gone, everybody – it’s like Michael Jackson. Everybody talks about how great he was. I know Prince is probably up there playing music with Michael Jackson. But a lot of people don’t keep it real and say the truth.” (TMZ)
Hollywood actor Will Smith spoke out on the music mogul’s shocking death on Facebook a few days ago.

R&B singer Alicia Keys remembered the iconic crooner on her IG page last week.
Prince was a gift, a genius and a reminder that we have no limits. Perhaps the most tremendous thing Prince showed us is how music can be the closest expression of freedom. His songs defied all the rules and taught us to let go of boundaries placed on us by the world and by each other. The only person who can keep chains around us and box us up is ourselves. He never gave in. I'm grateful for his example. I'm that much more free because of Prince. I hope he's found his place where he can create endless magic, mystery and music forever. The power in his songs moved me always. His music left me changed forever. I've said this before and I'll say it again, there is only one Prince. AliciaKeys.com/prince (link in bio)
