Album Review

Another of Master P's early albums released in association with In-a-Minute Records, Mama's Bad Boy documents the Richmond, CA, era, before No Limit moved its operations to New Orleans. The album is billed to Master P and the Real Untouchables, a collective that evidently featured Calli G, Markest Bank, Daniel Fry, Silk (i.e., Silkk the Shocker), Sonya C, King George, C-Murder, Fonzo, and Big Ed. Many of these rappers would fall off the No Limit bandwagon in time, as eventually did all non-sibling members of the collective. Hardcore fans of No Limit will find this short-lived — and little-documented — lineup to be curiously different from the down-South roster. These are West Coast rappers, Master P included, and Mama's Bad Boy is clearly inspired by the California gangsta rap of the time, chiefly N.W.A. "I'm Going Big Time" and "Trust No Body" were released as singles.

He wasn't a great rapper, nor was...
