One of the many rap stars who have successfully made the crossover into movies, Master P has managed to combine film work and music to winning effect. Born Percy Robert Miller in 1967, he is best known as the founder of No Limit Records, a hip-hop label which put out albums by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Mystikal and Lil Romeo among others, as well as being behind several films including 1998's "I Got The Hook Up." Although the label eventually went bankrupt in 2003, Master P later launched it as the New No Limit Records which, somewhat confusingly, has since been replaced by the No Limit Forever label. In his film work, he has proven himself to be a capable actor, appearing in almost 40 movies and TV shows, including 1998's "The Players Club," which was written and directed by fellow rapper Ice Cube. He also acted in the comedy "Hollywood Homicide," starring Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett, while eagle-eyed fans might have spotted him delivering an unbilled cameo in the Nicolas Cage/Angelina Jolie blockbuster "Gone in 60 Seconds" in 2000. His music, meanwhile, has been heard in a number of blockbusters, most notably the big screen version of "Scooby Doo" in 2002 and the horror sequel "Scream 2."
