SOLANGE SAYS HER DAD 'LOOKED UP' TO MASTER P.
'Make 'em say uuuungh!' That's right, Matthew Knowles, the man responsible for grooming two of the best artists in the music game right now (Beyonce' and Solange), had tremendous admiration for No Limit Records mogul, Master P.:
Solange: “I...remember my father really looking up to Master P because he was a Black man who entered this music industry and this landscape completely independent, and he held on to his independence, and that was important for my father who was someone who was transitioning as someone who was a music executive and learning the business,” she shared. “He had a great deal of respect for Master P and I would hear about that.”Solange also revealed that her dad is a lot like Master P.:
“I see a lot of similarities between my father and him,” [...] “the empowerment of being a self-made black man and navigating through that.”In case you didn't know, Master P. and the Knowles fam' go back to the early 90's when P. was on top and did the then little known group, Destiny's Child, a favor by featuring on their song.
Solange: “I think Master P is incredibly regal, and there was a thread of regality I wanted to connect to the album and the visuals,” she told the “Questlove Supreme” crew. “I really wanted to present Black people as, you know, [the] regal, stately beings that we are. I think that regality that can be expressed in so many different ways. [...] I remember, and this might be generational, seeing MTV Cribs with Master P on it and him having, like, a gold toilet seat, all gold everything, and being incredibly ornate.”IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD ANY OF SOLANGE'S NEW MUSIC LATELY, YOU ARE TRULY MISSING OUT. IT'S FIRE AND SHE TOOK IT BACK TO THE DAYS OF REAL MUSIC>>>
