Before signing with his favorite rapper, Rick Ross, over at Maybach Music, Washington D.C. spitter Fat Trel was linked to veteran music mogul Master P. While many assumed Trel (along with Alley Boy) would join P's newly incarnated No Limit Forever label, Trel told MTV News last week that the business between the two wasn't properly taken care of.
"It didn't go right. Things weren't done correctly on the business tip, so me and Master P have no relationship," he told us.
Well, there are two sides to every story, and now, Mr. "Make 'Em Say Uhh" is giving his side.
"What didn't go right? I didn't have any business deal with Trel: We only did a mixtape," P told AllHipHop.com. "We had no there [sic] business but, I wish him the best of luck on MMG."
P is referring to the New World Order mixtape that he, Trel and Alley Boy dropped last year as a trio, which they dubbed the Louie V Mob. In promotion for that tape, Master P crowned the group "the next generation of No Limit Forever," but after Trel signed with MMG in November, it appeared that his No Limit days were over.
"Fat Trel is a good rap artist, but the No Limit Forever brand is about building entrepreneurs and business partners," P said. "When I was around Fat Trel, he was in a rush to getting a check and a record deal versus being patient and building his own to be a true boss.
"I went above and beyond for Fat Trel," the mogul continued. "I took him out a negative environment, got him a safe place to stay in Los Angeles, transportation, put money in his pocket, paid for plane tickets and hotels for him and his team, got him exposure, put him on music with me and all without a contract just because I believed in the little homey."
Ultimately, P believes Maybach Music Group is a better fit for Trel, who dropped his Gleesh mixtape last week. "I admit I was surprised when I heard that he did a deal with Wale, because I thought they didn't like each other," he said about Trel's Maybach labelmate. "But I wish him the best with MMG; I think it's a better fit for him as an artist."
