While many see Eminem as the first Hip-Hop icon to take notice of 50 Cent, Master P has shared the he was actually the first to put money behind the Queens rapper-turned-television exec.
During a recent interview with WNBA champion Renee Montgomery on her Montgomery & Co podcast, The No Limit boss explained why he took a liking to the New Yorker before the masses caught on, bankrolling his first four shows.
“Ya know, the internet will take it and be like ‘Oh, you did this.’ No. I’m the first person to believe in him [50 Cent]. That’s basically what you heard. I think a lot of people when they interview people, they don’t say that.”
The exec born Percy Miller continued, “Nobody else believed in him. I seen the vision, like this guy’s a hard worker. He has a lot of talent. So, I’m going to put my money up to put him on tour — which is a blessing.
