Master P Hosting We Got Next Summit, Debuting Televised MC Competition

master-p11.jpgOn Saturday June 30, Master P will be hosting the We Got Next Summit at Howard University. The one day conference is described as “a means to enhance attention on Washington, D.C.’s array of talent and to promote music business knowledge among participants.” The gathering’s initial session will focus on artistic responsibility with regard to the content of the music they produce and perform. Other panel discussions planned for the day include sampling and other legal issues, producing hit records, and designing cohesive airplay strategies to building a buzz and reaching major labels. There will also be a fashion show, an artist showcase and an arena of vendors and exhibitors. Invited speakers include Chaka Zulu of Def Jam South, J. Prince of Rap-A-Lot Records, BET’s Mad Linx and producer Rich Harrison. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. on the day of the conference and admission is $25. On the preceding Friday (June 29), the Starz! Cable network will debut Master P’s America’s Next Hip-Hop Stars competition. In a continuation of the mission of P’s new record label, Take A Stand Records, contest participants will be expected to display a clean image and deliver inoffensive musical content. Master P’s son Romeo, rappers Snoop Dogg and Paul Wall and former BET host Free will serve as judges.

(Please note: The price of registration is $25 for those who register by June 25th. Late/door registrants will be subject to an increased admission price.)

    Much respect to the hommie P for stepping up and trying to help a fucked up situation with our music. Look man the dude is starting a positive label, he aint knocking no other artist for doing what they do. But for me personally I think that what he is doing IS some real STAND up shit like more of us need to be doing instead of following another man.
