From the rap game to Nickelodeon TV shows to basketball leagues, Master P has touched just about everything there is to touch during his legendary career as a rapper/music mogul.
It’s not too surprising to see he’s tried his hand at the burgeoning legal cannabis business. Unfortunately, the equity firm he aligned himself with for the venture apparently hasn’t lived up to their end of the deal, so now the New Orleans-bred rap legend is hitting them with a lawsuit.
The No Limit boss claims the firm agreed to produce and distribute his Master P’s Trees brand of weed in a one-year deal. For his part of the arrangement, P agreed to promote the brand and cover half of the production costs. The product was supposed to debut around the time of a music festival P was performing at.
Unfortunately, that didn’t happen because Privateer Holdings allegedly backed out of their agreement that same month.
What’s Next for Master P?
Now, Master P is claiming that Privateer Holdings never actually intended to collab with him and that they simply wanted “an inside look into the urban and hip-hop demographic of cannabis users” to use for their own purposes. The rapper/mogul is now suing Privateer Holdings for fraud and breach of contract. He wants $25 million in lost profits and damages.
Do you think Master P will be successful in his pursuit of $25 million dollars against Privateer Holdings? Is it any coincidence their name refers to piracy?
