Lil Wayne will appear on a track with Master P, according to allhiphop.com.
The song is called “Power” and AllHipHop calls it a “historic collaboration.” There has long been a feud between Master P’s No Limit label and Cash Money, which has featured Lil Wayne as a marquee artist since its inception.
On the website, Master P gives an explanation of the song and then previews a few bars for the bass-heavy track.
“Me and Lil Wayne about to go crazy,” he says, “and it’s about to be a magical 2015.”
“Power” will be part of Master P’s new mixtape We All We Got, slated to drop January 5 on livemixtapes. The mixtape will feature No Limit’s newest group, Money Mafia.
In 2011, former Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh spoke with HipHopDX and said that in the mid-1990s, Master P stole the saying “Bout It” from Cash Money group U.N.L.V.
“This is where all the beef started at,” Fresh said at the time, but added that the feud was mostly between Cash Money CEO Baby and the No Limit founder. “The crazy thing is everybody that was artists from Cash Money [Records] to No Limit [Records] knew each other. We grew up in the same circle of doing music. The two heads of those labels was the people that was beefin’. The artists were never beefin’. But it was just that ‘cause that was your side you had to go with your side.”
A year later, Silkk the Shocker, part of No Limit group Tru, in an interview with HipHopDX, agreed with Mannie Fresh.
“I never thought it was a problem,” he says. “I’m on [Master] P’s side and he never explained [how his beef with Birdman started]. I’m sure he maybe had like a few words about [Birdman] … but they grew up together, so I don’t know how that [relationship between them] was. But as far as the artists on the labels amongst each other, I don’t think it ever was a problem.”
