Master P hopes to remind the youth they can overcome any adversity that comes their way through a new children’s book.
“Adventures with Malakai” is inspired by Kentucky native Malakai Roberts. WAVE 3 News reports he is the survivor of a violent gun attack that left him permanently blind in 2020. Since the incident, Roberts has dedicated his life to becoming an advocate against gun violence through Christopher 2X’s Future Healers program.
Roberts is a testament that people can overcome any obstacles that come their way. Proving this, he has joined Master P, as a published author, for the book in collaboration with Snoop Loopz cereal.
“This book is going to be special because Malakai is special,” said Master P, according to WLKY. “I mean, this kid has never given up with all the adversity he went through so this book is gonna be special. And it’s all about kids, so we’re gonna be able to teach kids and help Malakai keep his adventures going.”

The pair debuted “Adventures with Malakai” at a Kentucky YMCA on Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 5). The book is set to be available for purchase by next year.
“It’s going to be incredible for the kids,” Master P said, according to WLKY News. “I mean, cause we want kids to know how to overcome adversity and by him losing his eyesight with the tragedies he’s been through, this has been incredible to be able to write a book with Malakai.”
Students in attendance were also able to get a taste of Snoop Loopz cereal, which is expected to hit store shelves nationwide by 2023. As AfroTech previously told you, Snoop Dogg and Master P joined forces to create the cereal through Broadus Foods, which also expanded their vertical to include instant grits, oatmeal, maple syrup, and pancake mix.
