In a recent interview, Master P pondered on his background. He told a tale of how he helped prevent a potential tragedy involving Snoop Dogg. The CEO of No Limit provided more details on his Instagram. Master P also stressed that he played a role in defusing the conflict between Snoop and his old record company Death Row Records. He claimed that Snoop eventually salvaged the day with his humility and openness to listening.
In his interview, Master P referenced something Snoop said in his own interview with The Pivot podcast. The iconic West Coast rapper recounted the Death Row Records incident in that podcast. The rapper-producer acknowledged that he cautioned Snoop against releasing a diss record against his former label. Snoop had planned to release an album titled F*ck Death Row. However, Master P, recognizing the potential consequences, advised against it. He even recalled giving Snoop a significant sum of money. This demonstrated his support and respect. It also showed just how serious he was about trying to get Snoop not to release the diss album. Clearly, it would have meant serious repercussions for the rapper.
