Master P Says Black People ‘Didn’t Benefit’ From The Success Of ‘Black Panther’
While stopping by The Breakfast Club to promote his and his son Romeo Miller‘s new film, ‘I Got The Hook Up 2,’ Master P talks entrepreneurship, Black Hollywood, plus the success and affect ‘Black Panther‘ had on the culture.
P explains, “You got to realize why it’s so important. When we do a project like ‘Black Panther,’ we didn’t benefit off that man … Like black people was in the movie and we were happy and excited, but it wasn’t us.”
In addition, the 50-year-old mogul says his upcoming film is the start of Blacks controlling what they create, sharing, “We did this for the budget, we did it more, and we did it for millions of dollars, but imagine if we had hundreds of millions of dollars to make a project? How would it look? This is the growth. This is why this is important because we’re coming back into the community, putting money back into the community. But it’s a process. We got to grow with this. Just like I did with music.”
P also says, “I showed y’all a couple of trailers and y’all said ‘Oh, this can’t be bigger than ‘Black Panther,’‘ why not? And if it’s close to ‘Black Panther’ it’s successful. We didn’t create ‘Black Panther.’ We definitely didn’t own ‘Black Panther.'”
