September 23 [7:55 EDT] -- Besides rapping his way to the number two spot on this week's pop albums chart ["I Miss My Homies" Video Clip, 1.1MB QuickTime QuickTime] , Master P is also a hip-hop businessman with his own production company called No Limit.
In addition to producing his home video best seller "I'm 'Bout It" earlier this year, Master P and No Limit are also shooting another movie called "I Got The Hookup," a comedy about scamming free cellular phone calls.
Master P s two-pronged success as both a rapper and video producer may be unusual, but it's no surprise to the man in the middle of it all.
"Basically what I did was I prepared myself, constantly moving," he told MTV News. "In business you gotta have a strategy, you gotta have a plan, and you gotta organize yourself for growing, and that's what I did. I knew '97 was going to be the year that we were gonna grow, and how far we grew, that didn't matter
Master P's "I Got The Hookup" is expected to hit theaters this winter, and you can also catch him this Thursday night on MTV's "Yo" at 10 p.m.
