The collaboration isn't as random as it might seem—one of the album's primary interests is in the Knowles family's roots, which stem from P's own Louisiana.
We hopped on the phone with Master P to learn how it all came about, his thoughts on the Black community's current status in America, and what he's up to now. I'm spinning a lot of the Drake, I'm spinning a lot of the new Gucci Mane, Chance The Rapper... I'm a fan of the new generation of music because I feel like everybody got their verse and their time.
My Album, A Seat At The Table, will be released digitally this Friday • September 30th.
“Not many music festivals last, have a 10-year run, or hold such validity and stay consistently good and getting better.” ) will join The Roots, along with additional headliners such as nu-soul songstress Solange (Beyoncé’s sister), producer/bassist Thundercat, old-school rap legend Pete Rock, and British acid jazz DJ Gilles Petersen.
Two of the Roots Picnic events involve Black Thought alone.
The annual Roots Picnic turns 10 this spring, and organizers are bringing Pharrell, Solange, and Lil Wayne to Festival Pier on June 3 to celebrate. For a decade, the annual picnic has driven local and national crowds to Philly to hear the best and brightest, old- and new-school hip-hop artists, some of whom (Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy, Usher in the past) get the rare opportunity to team with one of America’s finest, most dynamic live bands: The Roots.
“This definitely speaks to the staying power of The Roots and the uniqueness of the picnic as a good festival,” says Roots cofounder Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter.
With a biopic, a video game, and music both from himself and artists he's mentoring coming soon, Master Percy shows no signs of slowing down.. Also my new album will be coming out in a couple months, it's called Who have you been working with for that? Maybe people didn't understand us in our time and we was able to make history and sell 75 million records but this generation, man, I feel like they're creative, they're finding ways to make money off of social media, so I'm a fan of a lot of what I'm hearing. How do you feel about what's going on between Wayne and Birdman? They did so much for the culture of music, I think they need to figure that out because I think they're hurting each other.
That's my biopic that'll be coming next year so you can look out for that. Man...everyone from Lil Wayne to the No Limit Boys to Jeremih. What's your overall opinion on the music game today? You turn the radio on and there's so many good songs. They both did something to help build that brand and Lil Wayne is so talented and Birdman created a mega brand, I think they just need to figure it out, figure out how to end the relationship on a good note so they can always be friends.
