Where Are They Now?: The No Limit Soldiers [PHOTOS]

 

Percy “Master P” Miller had one of the most historic runs in Hip-Hop with his No Limit Records enterprise. Beginning in the early 1990s, the New Orleans native dominated the landscape for much of the decade with a staggering amount of product. Although many associate P with The Big Easy, he established the No Limit brand in Northern California.

With his brothers Sillkk The Shocker (Vyshonn Miller) and C-Murder (Corey Miller), P formed the group TRU and signed a number of California acts such as Ea-Ski and Lil Ric. Shifting the label to New Orleans, P signed Mystikal, Kane & Abel, Mia-X, the late Soulja Slim and former Death Row artist Snoop Dogg among others.  Backed up by production squad Beats By The Pound, No Limit spawned a series of copycats hoping to mimic the label’s overwhelming success.

It wasn’t all music with Master P, as the mogul’s film company continues to release films independently in DVD format to this day. P has been engaged in several business ventures over the years and the introduction of the digital-only No Limit Forever record entity only solidifies he’s not going anywhere soon.

Hip-Hop Wired takes a look back at No Limit Records, focusing on what some of the act’s biggest names are up to today. Hit the next page to read more. With over 60 signed acts, it was tough to nail down which ones to focus upon. Let us know in the comments if we missed any of your favorites.

    Sonya C, Magic (RIP), Skull Duggery, Fiend, Mac etc..big fan of NoLimit period. I met Mr Percy and his immediate family as well as the Nolimit Records family numerous times on numerous occassions. The man is one of the most genuine brothers I ever came across in my life. E! needs to bring back Romeo and Sean Kingstons reality show! Anything Miller relate I’ll support.

    Honorable Mentions:
    Big ED The Assassin (Died of Cancer) he was one of the 1st No Limit artists and original member of TRU from the early 90′s.

    Soulja Slim: (Murdered) Originally signed to Cash Money as Magnolia Slim then signed to No Limit, released 2 albums. “Give It 2 Em Raw” being the 1st release and one of the better No Limit releases from the catalog.

    MAC: (In Prision). Mac was one of the few lyrical acts NL had. His 1st album “Shell Shocked” was a “no limit classic”. “World War III” was ok but “Shell Shocked” could not be left out of rotation.

    Keno of Deadly Sounds: Producer discovered by C-Murder and signed under TRU Records/No Limit Records. When C-Murder went to prison, Keno went on his own. Even produced an underground album for Turk of the HotBoy$ after Turk left Cash Money and right before he ended up in prison. Keno also dropped an album.
