UPI News Service, 06/20/2006
Rap artist Master P is expanding his place in the U.S. entertainment industry, creating a new TV show and releasing films from his production company.
Allhiphop.com reports that Master P, whose real name is Percy Robert Miller, has plans to release the film "Repos" on July 4 from his HollyHood Cinema production company.
"Repos" will mark the first of 100 DVDs that the company has plans to release during 2006, and like all other future DVDs will include a complimentary CD of the film's soundtrack.
"If I had to compare any of my movies to any movies out there I would compare them to Uptown Saturday Night; it's funny, it has a great cast, and it's meaningful," the budding media mogul said on the Web site.
Not to limit himself, Miller also has helped create the new reality TV show "America's Next Hip-Hop Stars," which he also hosts.
On the program, celebrity judges will choose between six groups and 12 solo hip-hop artists who all are competing for the show's prize of a $50,000 recording deal.
