Master P is set to help a former gang banger reform his life in the half-hour special No Excuses, premiering Monday, Oct. 26 at 10:30/9:30c on VH1. Details are in the press release:
Hip-Hop artist and entrepreneur Percy Miller – aka Master P – teams up with VH1 in a half hour special to turn one former gang member’s life around.
After growing up in the projects of New Orleans, Master P is no stranger to the dangerous life of a hustler. Having overcome various obstacles, he reached his dreams by selling millions of CDs and establishing his successful music label No Limit. Master P is now on VH1 to implement his “work hard and never make excuses” philosophy to help others achieve their goals.
No Excuses, a 30-minute special airing Monday, October 26th at 10:30PM* on VH1, features Master P’s intervention of Torrie Jackson – a former gang banger in Los Angeles. Torrie won’t step up, get a legitimate job and be a role model for his son as his excuses have held him back. His complaints of having no money, no car, and no way of getting to job interviews have led girlfriend Keisha to make a desperate plea to Master P for help. Keisha fears that Torrie’s unemployment and lack of motivation will leave them broke and homeless. If Torrie can’t get his act together, Keisha will be through with him for good.
Enter Master P, Torrie’s only hope to improve his life and learn how to make something of himself. After completing various activities, from handing out fliers in a lobster suit to cleaning kitchens, Master P begins to show Torrie the amazing things you can do when you stop making excuses. Master P proves that anyone can succeed with hard work and that nobody can hold you back but yourself.
Will Torrie be able to leave his gang life behind and start a new life with Keisha and his family? Tune in to No Excuses on Monday, October 26th at 10:30PM on VH1 to find out.
This is but one of Master P’s charitable initiatives. Check below for info on his work with OneMillionGifts.org…
Businessman BBTV Chairman, P. Miller, teams up with OneMillionGifts.org by donating his money and volunteering his time to help accomplish the great mission for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season, which will be to feed and clothe at least 1 million of our world’s less fortunate.
OneMillionGifts.org is a hands-on organization that sincerely cares about the community; ordinary people doing extraordinary things by connecting with families in need across the world. A large number of those being assisted are children and their parents who lack education, are homeless, have mental or physical disabilities, have life threatening illnesses, have parents facing addiction or come from single family homes or the foster care system.
P. Miller states, “Growing up in poverty made me realize that most crimes are committed during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not only will we feed and clothe one million but also we can help prevent a lot of those in need from committing crimes like robbing and stealing the food or gifts they can’t afford during the holidays. Our mission is to bring hope to families by offering programs that help educate and rehabilitate families back into society. My personal goal is to get everybody involved. Even with the current downfall of the economy, each one of us can help make a difference by volunteering or donating. I’m also reaching out personally to corporations, entrepreneurs, pro-athletes, entertainers, churches, foundations, radio stations, online media, TV stations, Oprah, Dr.Phil, and others that can help bring awareness to this great cause. Eight years ago, I realized that education saves lives and being charitable and helping those in need has given me a profound happiness in my life, as there is nothing more rewarding than bringing smiles to children who are less fortunate. OneMillionGifts.org specializes in these areas. Therefore, I’m honored to be a part of this team.”
