Fresh off walking away from the reality show he created, Growing Up Hip-Hop, Percy “Master P” Miller teams up with BET on a new docuseries, No Limit Chronicles, which depicts the story behind No Limit Records.
The five-part docuseries will recount the remarkable journey of the label, from its extraordinary rise to decline and rebirth to prominence. The series features candid sit-down interviews from No Limit insiders like Miller, his son Romeo Miller, Snoop Dogg, Silkk The Shocker, Mia X, Mystikal, Fiend, and Mr. Serv-On, in tandem with rare archival footage and dramatic recreations of pivotal events. Viewers will get an in-depth look into the saga of this iconic entity which hasn’t been told definitively, until now.
“I did this project to inspire the next generation. I want to show the younger people coming behind me the good things I’ve done but also the bad things as a blueprint for them to learn from,” Miller says in an exclusive statement to Black Enterprise. “If you put your trust and faith in God you will be around for a long time and have sustainability in this industry like I have 25 years later.”
Miller rose from humble beginnings to become a pioneer in the rap game and leave an indelible mark on the industry. With entrepreneurial aspirations in the pursuit of Black ownership, his hard work and perseverance drove him to start No Limit Records and ultimately build an empire that would become one of the most successful hip-hop brands in history. Throughout the ’90s, label productivity reflected a work ethic unlike any previous consortium, as No Limit Records released an astonishing 66 albums and amassed a collection of platinum plaques, generating nearly half a billion dollars in one decade, making millions and millionaires during that time.
Part 1 of No Limit Chronicles premiered Wednesday, July 29, at 9 PM ET/PT on BET, with new episodes coming every subsequent Wednesday on BET.
