Happy 17th Birthday to ‘Ghetto Postage’

Every single cat in the game knows Master P’s name. Straight out of New Orleans dishing out banger after banger that give the f-word a major workout over hypnotic hip-hop beats and ferociously fast lyrical jabs, Master P has made a name for himself collecting gold and platinum plaques through exploiting what simply needs to be said including real life experiences that tend to be looked over with ignorance. Over his 2000 ninth studio album , ‘Ghetto Postage’, released on the almighty ‘No Limit’s Records’, P does not water down the historic roots of gangsta rap and has no shame drilling his peers over pure, unadulterated tracks that straight up deliver the facts. The album houses 23 songs full of skits and interludes presenting the reality of a typical day in the hood when P and his boys are up to no good. Here’s 15 of the most outrageous verses that the mogul nonchalantly sheds over ‘Ghetto Postage’ with grace, wit, and a smile on his face.
