Master P, also known as Louisville guard Hercy Miller’s father, is most famous for his hip-hop career in both releasing music and producing music. But, he also has some other ventures on his resume that would solidify him as more of a renaissance man, or a jack-of-all-trades. Not only did he write, release, and produce music. He also had his own record company in Richmond, California entitled No Limit Records, and eventually re-located it back his hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Perhaps the most well-known artist on that label was Snoop Dogg, who signed with the label in March 1998 and remained there for the releases of three albums: Da Game is to be SoldNot to Be Told (1998), No Limit Top Dogg (1999), and lastly Tha Last Meal (2000). Snoop Dogg’s contract was not renewed after those three releases and he would later move on to Priority Records, the same label that housed NWA and Jay-Z.

No Limit Records would later file for bankruptcy in 2003 due to several lawsuits, but that did not stop Master P from continuing to succeed. In 2020, he released a five-part docuseries on BET entitled No Limit Chronicles. It was a series that followed his career at No Limit Records and shed light on their impressive distribution deal with Priority Records.

Around the same time as his music career was taking off, he attempted a career in professional basketball as well. He made it to the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors training camp rosters in 1999, but could not materialize a successful NBA career.

Now, his son, Hercy Miller, is pursuing a career in basketball as he is currently a member of the University of Louisville basketball team. The 6-foot-3, 160-pound Miller began his collegiate basketball journey at Tennessee State, a Historically Black College & University. But, quickly entered the transfer portal following a medical misdiagnosis of a hip injury he suffered on November 9, 2021.

Following his availability in the portal, Miller committed to Xavier University as a walk-on under then-Head Coach Travis Steele. Unbeknownst to both of them, Steele was let go from Xavier just two weeks later. Then, the university announced the hiring, or re-hiring, of Sean Miller as their Head Men’s Basketball Coach.

After a lackluster season in Cincinnati without ever touching the floor, he decided to enter his name into the transfer portal again, and this time decided to come to the University of Louisville, yet again as a walk-on. However, according to The State of Louisville’s Jacob Lane, the Louisville basketball program put Miller on scholarship for this season, but will likely return to a walk-on next season, barring another transfer.

It is highly unlikely that he will enter his name into the transfer portal again because of the most recent announcement made by his father, in which he announced he will be hosting a new sports television show entitled The Truth alongside Card Chronicle’s Mike Rutherford.

The program will be aired on WBNA-21, which is an independently owned television station in Louisville owned by Evangel World Prayer Center. But, it will also be available on YouTube for anyone who misses it live. It’s debut episode was last time from 7-8 PM. Here is the YouTube link for the episode.

Master P had this to say about his latest business venture,

"“We will discuss UofL and national sports in a sophisticated, educational but honest way. This will be the realist sports show on the planet.”"

Very excited to see where this thing goes. Louisville just received a co-sign from one of hip-hop’s most famous entertainers.

Next. Dennis Evans projected to come to Louisville. dark
