Arguably the greatest hustler in Hip Hop history, Master P revealed to HipHopDX yesterday (January 31st) that, had it happened, his most impressive score would have been adding the legendary Tupac Shakur to his once mighty No Limit Records roster.

“To be honest wit’chu, at one time, I was thinking about signing Tupac,” replied P when asked by DX if there were any other big-name free agents, in addition to Snoop Dogg, that The Colonel tried to bring over to Hip Hop’s most successful label of the 1990s.

According to Master P, he attempted to sign the Oakland-based Tupac several years before No Limit’s commercial explosion, when the label had yet to center its operations in P’s native New Orleans, Louisiana and was still headquartered in Richmond, California as one of several up-and-coming Bay Area independent labels.

“[Tupac] was liking the movement of what we was doing,” explained P, “but we wasn’t fully there yet. … That was one little piece that I was looking at like, ‘You know what? This could be alright.’”

While there is no known video footage or photos of Master P and Tupac together, the head honcho of the rechristened No Limit Forever label revealed that he and his currently incarcerated brother C-murder were once opening acts for the future icon of Reality Rap, and additionally confirmed to DX that he subsequently spoke to Tupac directly regarding Interscope Records’ then biggest Hip Hop signee possibly joining “the tank.”

“Everybody was interested in No Limit,” replied P when asked if ‘Pac personally expressed interest in enlisting as a No Limit soldier. “I don’t think there was one person in the music business that wasn’t interested in being a part of that movement.”

Stay tuned to HipHopDX for Master P’s full feature interview, in which The Colonel explains the stray shots at dress-wearing, skateboard-riding youth culture included on his just-released Al Capone mixtape, his parental relationship to Chief Keef and why he “can’t change” who he is and was forced to abandon his attempt at curse-free, positive Rap. The man who was once responsible for over 75 million albums sold also revisits No Limit Records' past – including if P’s hoop dreams destroyed the tank, why he refused to negotiate with Beats By The Pound and what the real origins of “Bout It” are, contrary to Mannie Fresh’s version of events.

Pac was going to leave DR by the end of 1997, he would have been a free agent, i dont think he would have signed to anyone after that because of his experience being signed to DR. Pac already had his own imprint and publishing company, away from DR.

Although i think Pac would have rolled with P, cuz P was Pacs biggest stan, ask e40 and CBo, dude was beggin them to hook him up with Pac in 95, so i am sure he did meet him. Pac always showed luv to anyone fu*kin with the Bay and he luved dudes with independent hustles...

Once Pac wud have left DR, he wud need protection from Suge, i dont think it wud be safe for him to be on the west, so he wud have gone to the South, he was already spending most of his tme in ATL.

Jimmy I wud have given the same deal he gave to Dre. Makaveli records wud have been one of the rawest labels ever, with Pacs work ethic u know everyone wud be forced to work.

Yep, that is where the theory that Suge had Pac k!lled cause he was gonna leave DR for sure. Pac talked about doing that One Nation album right before his death.

I understand the theory, but Suge didnt know Pac was wanting to leave DR, hell Pac never knew he wanted to leave DR

Pac however was about to uncover some serious foul sh*t after he fired his (DR lawyer) David Kenner, thats when sh*t between Pac and Suge wud have hit the fan. Although Suge might have played it differently and tried to blame Kenner and play innocent...

Suge however didnt have Pac k!lled, you don't sit in a car while 14 random shots are pumped in to the side of ur car..The chances of you ctaching a stray are high.

Also dude shooting had a terrible aim, he riddled the car with bulliets but only caught Pac with 3.

If Suge wanted Pac dead he cud do it anywhere without a single witness and him not being there...
