Master P Throws Party For New Orleans Neighborhood
Who says you can never go home again?
Certainly not rap mogul Master P, who threw a block party and shot a new video over the weekend in the New Orleans neighborhood where he grew up.
Master P joined his two younger brothers, C-Murder and Silkk the Shocker, to film the $1.5 million video for "Hoody Hoo," the new single from Tru, the No Limit rap group composed of the siblings. Tru's new album, "Da Crime Family," was released last week.
Aside from the business matters, Master P told the Associated Press that he always intended on giving something back to the people of New Orleans' B.W. Cooper housing project when he had a chance. The thousands of fans who gathered for the shoot were treated to a parade, food, free T-shirts, and toys, all courtesy of Master P's No Limit Records.
The event does not mark the first time that Master P has remembered his old hometown community, as earlier in the year the rapper donated an estimated $500,000 to keep several schools and churches in his neighborhood from closing (see "Master P Donates $500,000 To Keep His Old School Open").
