Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, rapper, Master P made a heartwarming gesture towards older people. He gifted them with hand sanitizers and groceries.

While speaking about the relief materials, Master P revealed that anyone over 60 years could get them as long as they provide an identity card showing their age. He also said:

"We are probably the only ones in New Orleans that have it, so we want to make sure that the elderly have it."

Master P was born Percy Robert Miller in 1969. He grew up in New Orleans, a city associated with rich musical tradition and an underdeveloped hip hop culture.

After the death of Master P's grandfather, he inherited ten thousand dollars, which was eventually invested into his record label, "No Limits Records."

The record label initially started as a store where the legendary rapper worked. While working at the store, Master P discovered his love for gangsta rap, which he eventually delved into full time.
