Bottom line: Master P is a pretty amazing American success story, skyrocketing to fame as a solo rap artist, member of the rap group TRU and founder of No Limit Records in the mid-1990s.
The New Orleans native's business acumen made him the richest rapper of all time for a brief period in the late 2000s, when his fortune skyrocketed to a reported $700 million.
Master P didn't just stick to rap when he first became famous. He also had a string of hit movies he was in, most of which he financed and produced himself.
His son, Lil' Romeo, also proved to be a moneymaker early on, charting two top 10 Billboard albums in the early 2000s.
