Veteran rapper Master P
has hit back at 50 Cent
, branding the In Da Club
star "immature" for criticizing his decision to stop using racist and sexist language in his music. 50, real name Curtis Jackson
, blasted Master P last week for bowing to public pressure to clean up rap lyrics.
He said, "Well Master P doesn't sell CDs anymore. You can tell him I said it." But the comments have only inspired the Step To This
hit maker to continue in his mission to censor his own music in an effort to "change lives".
Master P says, "Curtis Jackson's comment motivated me. There are a lot of immature people in the world. Oprah Winfrey
is absolutely right, we need to grow up and be responsible for our own actions. Most artists' mission is to sell records. My mission is to help save and change lives."
"There are four things that differentiate me from artists like Curtis Jackson. One, I can honestly admit that I was once part of the problem. Two, I don't want my son to grow up and be like me. I want him to be better and do better, and that is why he is taking the time to pursue a college degree. Three, money don't make me, I make money."
"My goal is to educate our people in building generational wealth and knowing how important it is to own real estate. Four, I'm a true entrepreneur; my boss is God not (Interscope boss) Jimmy Iovine
. From one brother to another, if you misunderstand my purpose you could always pick up the phone or talk to me in person. I'm trying to be part of the solution not the problem."
