Master P is providing aid to his hometown of New Orleans after it was hit by Hurricane Ida, the second most intense hurricane in Louisiana history causing multiple deaths and leaving over a million people without power. Through his water company, LA Great, the No Limit Records founder told TMZ he’s helping the community with not only water, but also food.
“Well, you know what? It’s gon’ take a lot of prayers,” he began. “Also, I got a water company called LA Great water. If you need some help or need some assistance, we gonna make sure our people get water. Make sure we’re able to feed our people and help them get back. Hurricane Katrina was a tough one, this one even tougher for us. The lights been out for a while, no phone access, so we definitely trying to figure it out, man. And it’s gonna take all of us coming together.”
He continued, “I’m just praying for my people at home and we’re on our way down there now. And it’s really just trying to make sure we can get the elderly, get them in safe environments. A lot of people’s roofs have blown off, so it’s gon’ take a little time, man. Hopefully the government come through, but we gonna do our part, whatever we can do.
“People just hanging in there, man. New Orleans, there’s a lot of love in that city. Even though we go through a lot of devestations and tragedy, there’s a lot of love with the people coming together. So we gon’ overcome it.”
In August, LA Great CEO Master P teamed up with his sons Romeo, Hercy and Mercy to explain the water company’s “the more we make, the more we give” policy, which has allowed them to help those struggling from the Haiti earthquake, give back to inner city kids for education and feed the elderly.
