Formed in 2011 by Frankie Prada, New York City’s Money Mafia is speaking out towards hip hop mogul Master P about his recent use of their copyrighted name. In the video clip seen below, Money Mafia member Setic One opens up to the underground show Down In the Dungeon about his point of view and feeling on the subject, In a direct email to NHWWW Setic one states, “I, My founder Frankie Prada, along with Siin Citi, B Cereus and Sky feel highly motivated to get the answers and respect we deserve for the blatant disrespect Master P & No Limit Forever have demonstrated through the action of this situation.”
Not only claiming that their name has been used by the founder of the No Limit movement, Money Mafia has also claimed to reach out to Master P’s camp but received no response. Frankie Prada, founder of New York’s Money Mafia has gone on the record to say, “Master P knew exactly who we were and didn’t care because they had financial backing figuring that they will be able to make us irrelevant but little did he know the team was copy written and cosigned by other groups, such as Coke Boys, Universal and IMF Recordings.”
If the claims from Prada, Setic One, and the Money Mafia are beefy enough to be held up in a courtroom, it looks like Master P may have to cough up a couple of those bags from the Money Mafia logo. Setic One closes with, “As an artist I think many will think they have the upper hand because of the financial backing they uphold but it gives no excuse to use shady tactics and steal a brand already establish just to advance your leap back into the game. Hopefully this won’t only help come to an agreement but also place an example to others that not everyone will stand for this type of disrespect.”

Well known and highly regarded in the online hip hop community, the loss of Praverb was a definite shock. Earl Patrick McNease, also known as P the Wyse, was popular not only for his truth-telling rhymes but for his graciousness, honesty, kindness and humility. Long-time Praverb affiliates AWKWORD, Kev Turner, DJ Grazzhoppa and LX Beats join Praverb for his last song “All A Dream”, a tribute to P featuring the man himself, with all proceeds going to benefit his widow and their young son.
When I first opened up NHWWW to submissions it was difficult to get the word out until I found Praverb’s Ultimate Hip-Hop Blog Directory. After leaving a comment asking if I could be added to the list, Praverb almost instantly added me to the directory; the day that NHWWW took off. This was the first memory that popped into my mind after I heard the news of Praverb’s passing, as I will always be thankful for what he has done for myself, but the hip hop culture in general.
