Master P Talks The Power Of Possession: 'Ownership Is One Thing, But Control Is The Most Important Thing'

It’s no secret that the legendary Master P has the knowledge for days when it comes to lessons of owning your own. Among many things, the rapper turned entrepreneur — born Percy Miller — is an icon.
