The story of Master P and No Limit Records will be told on BET’s airwaves.
No Limit Chronicles, a five-part documentary series about the Hip Hop mogul and his label, has landed on the ViacomCBS-owned channel. The upcoming show is scheduled to premiere on July 29 with subsequent episodes airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. Eastern.
“BET is the perfect outlet for the NL Chronicles,” P told Billboard. “I want to continue to inspire and educate my fans and introduce my journey to a new generation. Many will relate to my humble beginnings and realize there are No Limits to what you can accomplish with hard work and determination.”
No Limit Chronicles will feature interviews with P and past members of his label’s roster. Notable interviewees include Snoop Dogg, Romeo Miller, Silkk The Shocker, Mia X, Mystikal and Fiend.
“Percy ‘Master P’ Miller rose from humble beginnings to become a pioneer in the rap game and leave an indelible mark on the industry,” BET announced in a press release. “With entrepreneurial aspirations in the pursuit of Black ownership, Master P’s hard work and perseverance drove him to start No Limit Records and ultimately build an empire that would become one of the most successful Hip Hop brands in history.
“Throughout the ’90s, label productivity reflected a work ethic unlike any previous consortium, as No Limit Records released an astonishing 66 albums and amassed a collection of platinum plaques, generating nearly half a billion dollars in one decade, making millions and millionaires during that time.”
BET continued, “As is common in many rags-to-riches stories, with their success and money came problems. Between infighting over a contract disputes, an artist exodus and business deals gone awry, No Limit suffered tough times. Years later, following in his father’s footsteps, Master P’s son Romeo resurrected the company as New No Limit Forever Records, giving new life to the label and preserving the family business.”
No Limit Chronicles is produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Creature Films. P and Romeo serve as executive producers along with reps from eOne and Creature Films.
