Master P - The Ghetto's Tryin To Kill Me!
I’m not sure what’s more iconic: the cover image of Master P getting ridden something nice, or the unforgiving rawness of this album’s sound. The Ghetto’s Tryin To Kill Me! finds the Ice Cream Man boasting about giggety giggety nines and fucking your girlfriend after leaving flowers at your gravesite (just so no one is mistaken about how real Percy keeps it on here).
The West Coast influence is apparent (he’s sipping gin and juice from the jump) but this was the project that began to bridge his California inspirations and his down south aspirations. Later albums Ice Cream Man and Ghetto D solidified Miller’s legacy as the Tank Colonel of No Limit Records’ army, but this marked the beginning of his outstanding run.
