Old No Limit News

10-24-98

The fact that Master P has enlisted a few more faces into his No Limit Records army isn't necessarily newsworthy, but the ages of the newest No Limit soldiers is the stuff headlines are made of. The rap duo Li'l Soldiers, who make their debut on the latest No Limit release "Mean Green Presents Major Players Compilation" with the track "Close To You," are just seven and eight years old. The camouflage-outfitted pair hail from New York, and will be recording their own album for No Limit in the coming months.

Look for some of the No Limit Soldiers to make some appearances on upcoming albums. Most notably, look for them to appear on the new album from Brotha Lynch Hung, which will be entitled Mid-Evil. No date yet on this release has been set.

The first magazine from Soldier Books entitled Tank World has been delayed. Due to pressure from other magazines that contain No Limit ads, Tank World is on hold until deals can be worked out.

It has been reported that Master P has beat out Sean "Puffy" Combs for the part in the upcoming Oliver Stone film. The movie was originally entitled NFL, but the National Football League has filed suit to make them change the name. The movie will star Al Pacino as a coach of a football team that contains actors such as Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, Master P, and Bill Bellamy. Master P will play a defensive back in the movie.

Where was Master P on South Park? For some reason he did not make an appearance. But he is still included on the Chef-Aid album. There is no word from Comedy Central on why there was no appearance.

After Detroit officials named Master P and Houston-based rapper Scarface in their call to ban rap concerts, Master P is finally commenting publicly on the potential crackdown on live hip-hop shows in the motor city. The city has considered the ban in response to the near riot that broke out during a Scarface and Master P concert at the Pontiac Silverdome on August 29, in which several fights broke out and three people were arrested. At th MTV Video Music Awards, Master P said that from what he heard about the Detroit incident, the show's problems were caused by the promoters lack of preparedness in handling the event -- and the presence of certain four-legged beasts. "I didn't even perform in Detroit," Master P said, "so I don't even know. That just goes to show you a lot of this stuff is hype. You know media hype and I think when people give [a concert] they need to know exactly [what is going to happen], to prepare and make sure everything is taken care of [in terms of] security." "I heard that the show had chairs in it," he continued, implying that the fights broke out in Detroit when members of the audience started throwing seats around. "And I think you can't do a performance with chairs anymore, you know, the times are changing. You got to realize if you're gonna give a big show like that you got to know what you (need in order to stage it)."

Master P has announced that the long awaited line of clothing, Soldier Gear, will be available in stores nationwide starting in January. Right now they are taking mail orders for the line of clothes, but only the shirts seen inside cd covers.

On Tuesday, October 20th, MTV will air the life story of Snoop Dogg. It will be a part of the new series called Biorythm. It will be aired at 10:30pm EST/PST.

In the episode of the irreverent TV show also dubbed "Chef Aid," the elementary school cafeterian voiced by Isaac Hayes gets caught up in a financial jam as the result of a legal judgment. The "South Park" kids -- Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny -- along with the rest of the townspeople, help to organize a benefit concert for their grilled cheese-flipping friend after discovering that Chef was the creative force behind some of the most important musical events in history. The first single from the record, Master P's "Kenny's Dead," will be released to radio on October 6. To hear a clip of "Kenny's Dead" go to South Park Online. The "Chef Aid: The South Park Album" is a compilation album of the artists appearing in the animated concert, and has been executive produced by "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with maverick producer Rick Rubin. "Chef Aid" is scheduled to air on October 7 at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central, while the "Chef Aid: The South Park Album" soundtrack will arrive in stores on October 20.

I know Cash Money Records has nothing to do with No Limit, but we felt due to its rising popularity the net needed a store where you can purchase its albums. And we have brought it to you: Cash Money Records Online Store. The site is up and complete!

Tuesday will mark the day for one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Snoop Dogg's first solo album since leaving Death Row Records and his third over all. Snoop returns to his old style of rapping found on Doggystyle and gets a little help from Beats By The Pound on this album. Again you can find most of the No Limit Soldiers on this album, but not as much Master PSnoop Dogg's second album on No Limit Records. The album entitled Top Dogg will be out in 1999. UPDATE!!!! - Many of you have already noticed that the song D.O.G.'s Get Lonely 2 is different on the CD from the one on the Real Audio we had. The reason is the U.S. album has the version featuring Jon B. and the European version has the one featuring Big Pokey, Master P, & Silkk.
