Master P Reunites The Highest Ranking No Limit Soldiers For Essence Fest (Video)
Master P calls Southern California home. However, New Orleans, Louisiana has always been the source of inspiration to the founder of No Limit Records. This weekend, P returned to the city that raised him for Essence Fest. One of the headlining acts, P brought out some of the past No Limit stars to the stage, including Snoop Dogg, Mystikal, and P’s younger brother Silkk The Shocker. Additionally, the Beats By The Pound (aka Medicine Men) collective (dominant during No Limit’s pinnacle) also took the stage, thanks to KLC and Mo B. Dick.
Other former NL acts including Mia X, Mr. Serv-On, Fiend, Mercedes, Sons Of Funk, Gambino Family, and Krazy, as witnessed by Ambrosia For Heads. The reunited troop performed a medley of songs that included several hits from P’s Ghetto D, which turns 20 years old this September.
A full marching band took the stage as P played the Bounce hits. Snoop and Mystikal each played solo tracks, as did other No Limit soldiers of years past. Notably, Mystikal previously spent a 2010s tenure with former NL rival Cash Money. He has not released a solo album in more than 15 years.
P also brought out his daughter Cymphonique. She is one of No Limit’s current flagship acts. The imprint is believed to be predominantly run by P’s son, Romeo Miller (fka Lil Romeo).
In the last year, Puff Daddy reunited much of his 1990s and early 2000s Bad Boy roster for an American tour. DMX, Eve, and The LOX are soon leading a Ruff Ryders tour, following an April reunion homecoming.
