50 Cent says P knew he was going to be big and finessed him
50 Cent went on his first tour in 2002 thanks to No Limit leader Master P. In an interview with the Big Boy podcast earlier this month, the Queens native recounted how P saw his success coming and used it to his advantage.
“What I'll say about P is he was slick,” 50 said. “He came, he gave me the money for the eight shows, right? We did four of them. He said, ‘Aw man, something happened we gonna have to take a break. We'll just come back and do the other four later.' When I came back to do the other four, I had already sold two million records. He had already paid me so I had to do the shows. He knew! He was like, ‘This muthafucka's on fire! This is gonna go off.'”
