Also from The Source's 15th year anniversary issue comes this advert for P Miller Clothing as modelled by the grand imperial Percy Miller and prince Percy Romeo Miller Jr. What a pity their feet aren't visible because they were probably resplendent in the infamous Master P sneaker range forever immortalised in rhyme by Lloyd Banks. P's the Master - he won't let you forget, hoe; stompin' hard in silver plastic spaceshoes while your boyfriend tip-toe :
Remember that time I said how I'd hoped the new No Limit era had yielded at least one official song which features the talents of both C-Murder and Curren$y? Found this recently, although Mac has the best verse on it. I love the way $pitta says "whoa, whoa, whoa, hold up, man - I got $2 million cash!" with such conviction during his introduction almost as much as I love how C-Murder tells the C.O to "fuck the world, bitch!" during his :
C-Murder ft. Mac & Curren$y - Camouflage & Murder

I'm up for another Pilot Talk with Ski to round off the series as a trilogy and that proposed Curren$y & Fiend tape over Menahan Street Band samples would be a-okay with me, but I'm not too interested in ever hearing Convert Coup because where's the synergy in mixing Curren$y's rapping with Alchemist's beats? What's next - Big Noyd does a mixtape over Big K.R.I.T production with Big Syke playing the J-Love/DJ Drama role? What I need is some new $pitta music which bears traces of New Orleans in its DNA again, so it's time to sever all ties with Wiz Khalifa, burn the Billionaire Boys Club gear, give your big bro' a call and dig out the bandana, B :
I only stumbled upon the 24 carat nugget of rap-nerd trivia that Curren$y is Mr Marcelo's lil' brother recently but it makes total sense because I always thought Marcelo was such a randomly odd choice of former No Limit roster members to pop up on $pitta's mixtape cuts given that he was only involved with the label for one album and a notable verse on Whodi from the first 504 Boyz album a couple of years before Curren$y even signed on the dotted line with Percy in 2002. Whatcha gonna do?? Whatcha gonna do when the older Franklin brother, Magic, Mystikal, DJ Wild Wayne and the Miller brothers run wild on you, BROTHER??!!??
