Master P was born under the zodiac sign of Taurus on 29 April 1970, in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he was raised by his parents alongside his four siblings. He has a sister, Germaine, and brothers, Kevin, Corey and Vyshonne. Corey is also a rapper, perhaps known better by his stage name ‘C-Murder’, and Vyshone, also a rapper, goes by the name ‘Slikk the Shocker’.
Master P rose to prominence in the mid-’90s with his hip hop group TRU, but before his music career, he played basketball for the University of Houston on an athletic scholarship. In his freshman year, he transferred to Merritt College, in California, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business administration.
After he inherited $10,000 as part of a malpractice settlement following his grandfather’s death, Master P opened a record store called No Limit Records and Tapes, in Richmond, California. In 1990, he released the cassette tape “A Mind Of A Psychopath”, and launched his music career.
His debut album “Get Away Clean“ was released on 12 February 1991, followed by his album “Mama’s Bad Boy“ in April 1992, while his first collaboration album with the TRU, “Who’s da Killer?”, was released in 1993.

Speaking of his personal life, from 1989 until 2014, he was married to Hercy’s mother, Sonya, who filed for divorce asking for 40% of their assets.
This certainly wasn’t a small amount of money, considering the fact that in 1998, Master P was ranked 10th on Forbes magazine’s list of the US’s 40 highest paid entertainers, with a net worth estimated at over $55 million. In 2013, his net worth was estimated at $200 million, making him one of the wealthiest figures in the American hip-hop scene at that time.
After the divorce, Master P is said to have dated Simin Hashemizadeh, who presents herself as an entrepreneur and philanthropist on her social media platforms. According to sources, this turned out to be the truth, and the two are still dating.
Master P is also known for his philanthropy, and in May 2022, he and Hercy threw a birthday party for two-year-old Ocean Robertson, a Louisville shooting victim who was recovering in the local hospital. He shared a photo on his Instagram featuring Hercy holding the baby in his lap, and the photo has amassed over 15,000 likes.
Judging by Master P’s Instagram posts, he seems to be very proud of his son, Hercy, and his success as a college basketball player, since he daily shares photos featuring Hercy’s workout routine and games.
