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.

Cheers.

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?

Pac's notepad.  :)

Probably spent it on studio time and marketing.  Shit ain't free.

10k wont get you all that much studio time...

To create Mamas Bad Boy it was probably enough DOT DOT DOT

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

CLASSIC.... west is BACK

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.

naw he made $56.5 million in profits in 98 according to a VH1 documentary about him. at one point i know his various buisness deals were valued at over 550 million but that was back when he managed several athletes and had sooo many different buisness ventures goin on. but P is still cakin in coz he owns a whole bunch of shit thatīs not related to music and that Nickolodeon shit alone prolly takes care of his yearly expenses. and he still owns those sport centers and shit he built when he managed all of those athletes. that VH-1 documentary about him is pretty interesting and i have it on my comp and i might up it over night.

I'll assume Jordan quickly got on top after his comeback.  Jordan sales were through the roof.

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.

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..
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.
