Master P stays making major moves. From real estate to burger joints, the New Orleans rapper has his hands in many pots. Earlier this year, No Limit’s head honcho teamed up with Rap Snacks’ CEO, James Lindsay, to relaunch the snack brand. If you’re unfamiliar with Rap Snacks, they’re the bags of chips with your fave rappers on the front. Cardi B, Migos, and even Lil Romeo have been featured on the front of the bags of their tailored taste.
From jump, Master P knew that this move would be a good one. “It’s all about the blood, sweat, and tears and saying that we are entrepreneurs,” P said in an interview with ABC Audio. “So that’s my involvement in getting into this, because I say, ‘You know what? This [is an] entrepreneur, I’m an entrepreneur. Imagine what we could do together.'”
From his partnership with Lindsay, Master P also partnered with Walmart to bring 4,200 Rap Snacks to their stores nationwide. In an interview with MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari, the mogul spilled the deets on the Walmart deal. He also talked about the importance of ownership and giving back to our communities.
“When you talk about African Americans, do we own our businesses? Not really,” he said. “We go to school, we educate ourselves, but we don’t realize we can be owners of these types of companies.”
The business partners also introduced their next product: Rap Noodles. The cup of noodles will be available in two flavors, gumbo and chicken, and will be targeting college kids and our communities. “We eat a lot of this product but we don’t own any. So, we’re changing that,” Master P said at the end of the interview.
Now, that’s a smart move. Ramen noodles have been a part of our culture since we can remember. Whether you were eating them raw after school, or cooking them in the microwave for a late night snack in college, noodles have been a must-have. I mean, let’s be honest: they still are!
