Rap mogul Master P is looking to become the NBA's first hip-hop coach.
With the head coach position for the New Orleans Pelicans currently open, the No Limit Records founder believes that he is the best man for the job, considering his impeccable business portfolio and time in the NBA.
"I think it's time," the 51-year-old told TMZ. "They gotta do something different, unique. You look at Tim Tebow. They brought him to play as a tight end because they looking at times is changing. The NBA is entertainment. I think it's time for me to be the first Hip Hop coach."
P went on to add that he has coached some of the league's brightest stars, including DeMar DeRozan, and has been instrumental in elevating his sons from high school athletes to potential NBA prospects. Being from New Orleans and understanding the culture, he says players such as Zion Williamson need someone coaching them who "understands them."
During the course of his illustrious career, Master P has played with the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors, in addition to having one of the most successful rap careers in history.
Do you think Master P could take the New Orleans Pelicans to the next level? Only time will tell.
