An astute businessman and No Limit soldier, Percy Miller, better known as Master P, recently revealed his intentions on entering higher education. In an Instagram video post titled I used to want to own an NBA team but now I want to own a HBCU,” the hip hop mogul expressed his desire to own an HBCU.

“More women graduate from HBCU’s than any other university and I love that. If we’re going to change the narrative, it has to start with the truth, education, and economic empowerment. I was shocked when I Googled who owned and founded HBCU’s. We can’t change the past but we can change the future by investing in the next generation. They going to have to sell some of these schools to us, or fund it the same way other major universities are funded #Godisgood Join the Movement!”

Earlier this year, the enterprising rapper announced a partnership with Richard Patterson, a former engineer who designed Tesla’s Model S car in addition to helping design the Boeing 777 and the Dodge minivan. The newly formed company, Trion SuperCars, is the first Black-owned company of its kind. He is the first Black-owned supercar manufacturer in the country.

“Richard Patterson is a genius,” Miller said in a statement to Rolling Out. “He has created the blueprint for the next era of supercars. It’s time for us to change the narrative for our culture by offering economic empowerment with this partnership…The Nemesis RR is about the superb performance, head-turning appearance, and technical innovation that creates the blueprint for the next era of supercars.”
