Master P Replaces President Clinton
On July 11, former President Bill Clinton was scheduled to speak at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Mich. for an NAACP town-hall meeting, but at the last minute canceled his appearance. The NAACP brought in Master P as the replacement who came in addressed the controversy regarding hip-hop lyrics, strong Black leaders and placing value in education. More than 1,000 NAACP members attended the forum to address the new state of young Black American and the issues on poverty, education, and health.
â€œDonâ€™t be afraid to make a change,â€ Master P said. â€œI come from the ghetto. Iâ€™m a living witness that you can make it.â€
As far as hip-hop lyrics Master P stated, â€œI was once part of the problem,â€ P said. â€œBut I realized, by having kids, that if Iâ€™ve got to get in the car and turn down my own music, something is wrong and Iâ€™ve got to fix it.â€
