Master P Causes “Ruckus” at Book Signing in Chicago

Police were called to a Chicago bookstore last night (October 1) to quell a disturbance that broke out during a Master P book signing. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, cops arrived at the Barnes & Noble at 1441 W. Webster Ave. at around 8:15 p.m. in response to an unspecified incident. Chicago Police News Affairs Officer JoAnn Taylor told the paper that no arrests were made and described the problem as “some type of disturbance.” P was at the bookstore to sign copies of his new book Guaranteed Success, which was released on September 1.

    WHY????????????????????????????????????????????????????? MASTER P IS “NOT” NOTHING TO GET EXCITED OVER AND HAS NEVER BEEN TALENTED!!!! PEOPLE ARE JUST FUCKIN STARSTRUCK FOR NO REASON THESE DAYS!!!

  • Fire

    Master P may not hae been the most talented musically or lyrically (he even admits it himself), but he was a damn good businessman and entrepeneur, and that’s what got him where he is today. Co-sign The Notorious C.O.R.E.Y., though. People do get starstruck WAY too much over some small event.

    I’m not hating on Master P, I even said in my comment that he was a damn good businessman and entrepeneur and that’s why he should be respected. Plus, I respect him for trying to change and be a good example.

    The reason I brought up the not best musically or lyrically comment is because he did indeed admit it himself in a roundabout way. During the recent congressional hearings on hip hop (which I saw in its entirety), he said that he was only in hip hop to make money to get out of the hood. I respect that he can admit that, and I genuinely respect him as a man who’s trying to better himself and others in his own way. I just am not the biggest fan of his music, though I need to hear more. Plus, being a good person is more important than making good singles.

  • accurate

    Hypocrite?

  • DirtDoggy

    Ha, he’s getting his hood pass revoked for being a sell out hypocritical bitch, is what’s going on. He’s out there trying to make more money but not giving and of that guilty money back to the kids that he feels so bad about for his lyrics (if you can call them that).

  • Trickdd

    PEOPLE JUST STATRIN SHIT COUSE THEY SEE HOW HE IS DOING THE POSITIVE THING NOW SO THEY TRYING TO GET HIM IN TROUBLE. P IS A DOWN SOUTH LEGEND

  • UKNOW

    Master P is one of the pioneers of the hustle game. The same hustle game that some of his biggest haters are trying to imitate. He’s an excellent business man and not to mention, obviously a good father. Its good to come from one place but to realize when its time to grow up and go to the next level. Hats off to P.

  • youdontknow

  • JOJOBALL

    Master P is one of the first indie labels that was considered major. Only labels like def jam was already really established. P was in the south pushing 50,000 records out the trunk since 1990 by 94 he was worth 50 million and in 96 he was in his prime. The dude owns like 5 mcdonalds, some rims, carwashes, etc. Let’s be real the guy is a legend. He might not of been the best rappe but down south back in the 90′s P was the hottest around and him selling millions of records proves that. The book thing is crazy but evrybody doing books now so he decided to do one too. To me he still just as street to when he started he just matured and stepped out of the ignorance. I mean P got songs with 2Pac, E40, Snoop, Bone Thugs, shit P was the number one runner back then. Before diddy blew big, while suge was big, P was big down south….. Real Shit

    Yea you right They were before P but they all had major deals, P came up on an independant level when the south wasnt getting any attention and couldnt get deals. He was making DIDDY money independant dats un heard of. He was so rich that once he signed major he still owned all his masters. Ya favorite rapper aint even got that. Ice Cream man, UGH Ghetto Dope all P classics that sold millions P own the masters. He still getting paid off that.
    Say what ya wont about P not being the best rapper but he definatly brought that real ghetto classics.
