Hip hop and rap mogul Master P. has launched his own distribution company, Gutter Music Records and Distribution.
According to Miller, the new distribution company will also distribute releases from his No Limit label.
The first release to be distributed by Gutter Music Records and Distribution will be Hurricane Katrina by the 504 Boyz, which features group members Master P., Silkk the Shocker, Krazy, Hallelujah and Playa.
In addition to handling the distribution of the record, which hits stores Nov. 8, the New Orleans native said 100% of the records proceeds will be donated to the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
“Record companies are spending too much money and, as a result, the artists are barely surviving,” says Master P. “The whole industry is changing, radio stations are constantly firing DJ’s… the industry is all visual now. Gutter Music will start small of then build - the Independent way.”
The next release will be Young Ballers from Lil’ Romeo featuring The Rich Boyz, which hits stores on Nov. 22.
The Rich Boyz are a family group that features P’s other son Vercy Miller (Young V.) and cousins and group members C-Los, Big Doug and Lil' D.
“The Rich Boyz are the future of the streets, the way the 504 Boyz and TRU were the future when I was coming up,” Master P. said of the group.
Next through Gutter Music will be Master P.'s own Living Legends, the follow up to his album Ghetto Bill: The Best Hustler in the Game.
Ghetto Bill was recently released through a distribution deal with Koch and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s at #1 independent albums chart.
Living Legends by Master P. hits stores Nov. 29 and features P’s latest single, “Cookie Money.”
“The streets are ours and we ain’t going nowhere. You can’t beat us, [so] join us."
Master P. is also working on a new movie, titled “Get Money” which had no release date as of press time.
