A lot of people told me not to get involved with him but I’m about helping the next generation and I looked at him as just misunderstood,” Master P said. “I treated him like a son. I never asked him for a dime, I never took any money from him. I only went into my pocket and spent money. I paid for plane tickets for him and his guys. I went to the government to get him cleared. My intention was to help him build a positive image from the perception that he had out there already.”
