Title: crazy shit about No Limit concerning thier sales
Post by: ABN on July 10, 2005, 06:26:02 AM
damn i was flipping through an old XXL from 99 and i saw something thatīs pretty crazy. i saw that No Limit had dropped close to 20 albums in 1 year that all went atleast gold(8 of them went platinum or better). now thatīs some of craziest shit iīve seen as far as sales is concerned for any company, and P had one of those deals Death Row almost landed with Sony that meant that he spent all of the money on the projects but it also means that he made 87% of the money. now i know why P calls himself the best hustler in the game coz thatīs crazy. No Limit=the biggest dynasty that hip hop has ever witnessed. No Limit=hardest fall off of a hip hop dynasty aswell.

regarding sales it was crazy but when it comes to quality Death Row is the biggest dynasty. Plus about WW sales Shady/Aftermath/G unit > No Limit without a doubt

Yep. Maybe not in terms of impact musically (although the 97-98 era had some amazingly dope shit), but in terms of business P had it locked. Gotta respect that.

^their musical impact as far as opening doors for people was prolly bigger then Death Rowīs and whatnot. people seem to forget that if you take away No Limit you can automatically take away 50% of the success that the south is enjoying coz radio stations didnīt play no rowdy southern music before P(and now itīs sellin like crazy)they didnīt sell no records before P etc etc. now i agree that No Limit produced a lot of weak music but without them we wouldnīt hear all of these southern rap acts on tv or radio(maybe we wouldīve been better off without it). i mean their roster was also crazy and yes a lot of their artists was indeed wack but they had some quality artists in Slim,MAC,Fiend,Mystikal,Magic(in his old days coz nowadays he sucks),Snoop,Mia X etc etc. now P dropped 2 great albums but very few people give him the props he deserves as far as opening doors and pimping the game harder then anyone has ever done. and he layed the blueprint that a lot of labels has tried to copy but most of the labels that has copied his model hasnīt done nearly as good as he did. if you canīt give it up for P and NL musically i can understand it but if you canīt give up for their hustle youīre a hater.

Shady/Aftermath/G Unit have massive marketing budgets, much higher than No Limit ever had, so of course they will sell more. For the money that P put into No Limit the return was much more than I expect even he ever expected it to be, he certainly opened doors for the whole southern explosion. Whatever you say about P as a rapper, you can't knock his instinct as a businessman, he saw gaps in the market and exploited them to the fullest.

to peeps comparing No Limit to Shady/Aftermath think about this. Interscope basically makes ALL OF THE MONEY of their sales so they put up a whole lot of money behind the projects they release. P was makin like i said over 80% of the money therefore Priority didnīt put up any money behind him. had they done that P wouldīve outsold Interscope as a whole. Dre,Em and 50 were all rich as shit when they started their record companies so they had money to play with, P started No Limit with 10k and made it into various things that at one point were valued at almost 1 billion dollars. and people say that Roc-A-Fella was a dynasty lmao No Limit has sold more then 30 million more units worldwide then the ROC has done and they(ROC) had one of hip hopīs biggest superstars on the label. man i highly doubt that we will ever see something like No Limit happen ever again.

I admire Master P for making millions of dollars on No Limit.  Awesome job for him.  This is especially crazy considering that the majority of the music was striaght garbage.  I've never understood the appeal of No Limit music, and I could never stomach an entire album by any artist on there, besides Snoop of course.

well P had one of those deals(iīve forgot what they are called)which basically kept No Limit an independet company as far as money making is concerned and all Priority did was press up the albums pretty much. most of the marketing and whatnot was done by Pīs personal marketing company. and he signed Beats By The Pound and Deadly Soundz as in-house producers meaning that he paid them to do a certain amount of songs for him and he signed them up for a whole bunch of songs and paid them for all of the tracks when he signed them. thus he made it impossible for them to demand more and more per beat once No Limit blew up so they produced all of NLīs early albums(on Pirority but they weren not No Limitīs fiirst albums) from front to back and P had already paid them so he made all of them money. and what made it possible for P to land a deal like that is that he had an album go gold 100% independently(the first TRU album with his brothers on it)and he sold hundreds of thousands of records indie therefor the major labels had to offer him an incredible deal and they hardly had to fund him coz he had all of the stones in place already.

This is what C-Murder said recently about the fall of No Limit and its association with Beats by the Pound

"I think the biggest mistake was when we let our production team, Beats By The Pound, go and leave. Talk about crucial. Man, Beats By The Pound was what kept the camp together. That music was what turned No Limit into a household name. Yeah, as rappers we all had something to do with the album and our appeal, but the music changed Hip Hop. BBTP was the sound of No Limit and we let them get away over some business and then the whole thing crumbled."

There u go. You cant let your in-house production team, which literally made No Limit into the dynasty it became, up and go.

One more thing though, could you elaborate a bit more on this:

P started No Limit with 10k and made it into various things that at one point were valued at almost 1 billion dollars.

What did he spend the 10k on? etc?

i dunno how much of the 15 dollers master p made on each copy sold
but deathrow used to get 5$ off the 15.. so they make 5 million for each platinum plaque
am pretty sure dre got atleast the same deal or maybe a lil better
so when eminem sells 8 mills
aftermath makes 40 mill
em prolly makes 1$ per copy
u got promo money cut off
so net profit is atleast 20 mill for dre
am pretty sure though P made much more than that cause its a print and distribute deal
and he prolly fucks his artists over too

thereīs no actual proof that DR got five dollars a pop it was only Suge who said "instead of a dollar we want 5". and Interscope owns 50% of Aftermath so Dre aint makin no 5$ a pop. and according to the people who negotiated Death Rowīs deal they took a slave deal and if you a have a slave deal thereīs no way in hell you gonna make 50% of the 10$ that the record company makes of each album. and thereīs no such thing as fucking your artists over coz itīs a business and for a business to be successful for your own good youīll need to do whatever to make you the most money. itīs the artists fault that they didnīt read the contracts they signed.

Master P comes from New Orleans and attended the University of Houston on a basketball scholarship. However, he soon dropped out of college and moved to Richmond, taking business class at Merritt Junior College. Using his grandfather's inheritance, Master P formed No Limit as a record store, then turned it into a label.

I HIGHLY doubt that they had 20 albums that at least went gold in 1998.  To even claim that is absurd...there is no way in hell that artists/groups such as Kane &Abel, Mr. Serv-on, Ghetto Commission, Prime Suspects, Skull Dugery, etc. etc. etc. all went gold.

No Limit went crazy in 1998, it seemed like they were releasing albums every week.

the shit no limit n p nem did went over alot of peoples heads

he turned the rap game into the dope game..

1st n the 15th of every month u got a new no limit album..n if u ever served work u know thats time to put work in fiends lives

the different colored album cases represented the dope game..n the colors represented the artist product..jus like the different color crack vials or weed baggies repped different dealers product

when the tank got to rollin everybody went gold or platinum..n they were all no names

Master P saved Snoop. if it wasn't for Percy miller, aint no tellin where the fuck Snoop Dogg -"the rapper that your grandma knows about", would be today..
snoop was off Death Row, broke, fucked-up with no future. and Master P scooped him up.
alota people tend to give credit to Dre & Suge for the creation of Snoop, but it was on No Limit that Snoop found himself.. he said so himself..

say what you say about Master P as a rapper, but as an entrerenur n businessman - this guy is bigger than Jay-Z, Russell Simmons, 50 cent and Puffy. his run was the american dream - and almost no one in the whole music business has been as succesful as him, during such a short period of time. he is also, still the richest rapper to this day..
Master P - the ultimate papergangster

Yeah, I was never much of a fan of No Limit but they got their hustle on. Can't knock Master P as a businessman.

Not entirely true. Snoop wasn't off of Death Row, he was stuck there. Suge was locked up and it was a bad time to be over there by most accounts so P cut a deal with Suge to bring him over to No Limit.

At that time Snoop was a bigger star than the entire No Limit roster. I fail to see how he was "saved."
