Master P

Percy Miller, a.k.a. Master P, was born on April 29, 1967 in New Orleans. He was raised in the city’s Calliope projects with siblings Corey, Kevin, Vyshonn, and Germany. His parents divorced in the late ‘70s and the five siblings divided time between Nola and Richmond, CA. Miller earned a basketball scholarship to University of Houston, but a knee injury squashed his athletic dreams. He relocated to California after his brother Kevin was robbed and killed in New Orleans. He enrolled at Oakland’s Merritt Junior College to study business and got involved in the rap scene. Miller opened a record store called No Limit Records using money from a malpractice lawsuit regarding his grandfather’s death. Besides making a name for himself in rap and hip-hop, Miller is also involved in movies, real estate, Foot Locker, gas station, phone-sex company, and a sports management firm that represents basketball players. He competed on Season 2 of “Dancing With the Stars” with pro partner Ashly DelGrosso. The entrepreneur and philanthropist announced in September 2017 the creation of the Global Mixed Gender Basketball league for men and women to play the sport together. Miller was married to ex-wife Sonya for over 20 years. Their marriage ended in a bitter divorce and custody battle. They had seven children together, including son Romeo Miller, a.k.a. Lil’ Romeo. Miller and his children appeared on the reality show “Master P's Family Empire.”
