Fred Schruers, Rolling Stone, 29 October 1998
MASTER P is hip-hop's man of the year, and then some. It seems hardly a week goes by without a new release from his No Limit Records factory or the expansion of his empire. He's now a recording star, a label mogul, a film writer-director-producer, an actor (this past spring he co-starred in his own Miramax-distributed production, I Got the Hook-Up!, directed by Michael Martin), a sports agent (Derek Anderson of the Cleveland Cavaliers is one notable client) and an author (a book-length collection of social diatribes, Animal Cruelty, is in the works).
