Master P is tired of his former artists speaking negatively about him after departing his label – and it seems the fatigue stems from recent comments made by Fat Trel.
The No Limit mogul was a guest on the latest episode of The Gauds Show, posted on Thursday (February 16). During the conversation, P jokingly proposed a statute of limitations being imposed after seven years of leaving his label – and made some thinly-veiled swipes while doing so.
“I think people wanna do and say what they wanna do after time go by. Like another guy said, ‘Oh P said he was gonna do [a sequel to] Menace II Society,’ he began – referencing Trel’s recent conversation on No Jumper. “How could I do Menace II Society? Go check have I ever said that in anything. You can’t find me saying it. So what I did say was I was going to do a movie like Menace II Society.”
He continued: “Back then I had a movie in mind. It was called Get Money. But at the time, Gucci Mane kept going to jail. So I was thinking on him, putting a couple people in the movie with him – some other young boys with him. But he kept going to jail. It’s crazy how this generation will act like you just said that yesterday but that was 12 or 15 years ago. Why is that a topic? That don’t even make sense, but that let me know, oh, they scared of you.”
He continued on, adding that he always tore up a contract the minute an artist said they wanted to leave him.
“I’m like, ‘How could an artist be mad with me?’” P asked. “Let me tell y’all – and I want all y’all to know this – this what my motto was: If you don’t wanna be with me, I don’t wanna be with you. It’s almost like in a relationship. I ain’t trying to hold you back.”
“That’s what I call ungratefulness. If you moved on 10 or 15 or 20 years after me, why is you talking about me? I forgot about y’all! For real. I’m the only thing you can talk about?”
“It should be a law. After seven years, you shouldn’t be allowed to go on no podcast and talk about nobody. Think about it! It’s a statute of limitations. If you ain’t been around that person in over seven years, please, you don’t deserve to talk about them.”

Trel’s appearance on No Jumper arrived last month. During the sit-down, the DMV-based rapper said he left Master P’s fold early in his career after being promised a role in a Menace II Society sequel that never came to fruition.
Instead, Trel accused P of making him record for a group that he never agreed to be a part of and said he even started selling the music online without giving him a contract.
“I felt like we was recording too much music because I’m like, ‘We here for the movie, bruh,'” Trel said. “I been living here for about seven months, I haven’t started an acting class, we no longer spoke about the scripts, the movie never ever came up. You know we doing video shoots and photo shoots and we got shirts pressed up that say Louie V Mob and he calling us the Louie V Mob and outside of the money that he was paying me monthly, I was receiving nothing for all of the music I’m putting out!”
Eventually he quit and never looked back, and Trel went on to explain that he never bothered to talk to Master P about it afterward because he didn’t have any respect for him.
One of Menace II Society‘s directors, Allen Hughes, later confirmed to HipHopDX that neither he nor his brother were ever approached by Master P or anyone from his camp in relation to doing a Menace II Society sequel.
“This is the first I’m hearing of this,” Hughes told DX. “I respect P tremendously but would never approve a sequel to Menace, never.”
