Master P is among the first rappers who discovered the potential in the music industry. He established No Limit Records (now known as No Limit Forever Records), a record store in California, which later became the tiny bubble that snowballed into a multi-faceted business empire.
Bursting out of the confines of the music booth, Robert Miller intuitively diversified his wealth into other industries ranging from music, sports, telecommunication, jewelry, clothing, real estate, and more. He launched P. Miller Enterprises, a conglomerate of several businesses under his portfolio.
