P starts off his list with his former No Limit artist, Snoop Dogg. Earlier in the conversation, P reminisced on saving Snoop from Death Row.
"What I liked about the whole situation with Snoop, Snoop wasn't afraid to change his life and listen," he said at the 5:40 mark. "I was there for him, but when he started figuring out who God was and I started figuring out who God was, we never been afraid of a man."
He added after detailing his experiences working with Suge Knight and Death Row, "And Snoop, he got a heart of gold that I'm like, 'You know what? He deserve this. I was a fan of his at the time. I'm like, 'Nah, Snoop ain't done.'"
P followed his Snoop pick with 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. before adding Scarface. Master P then offered a surprising answer when he rounded out his top five with Lil Wayne. "I got to be able to give credit to the people from where I come from that really went hard," P said at the 18-minute mark when explaining why he chose Weezy.
Although they're both from New Orleans, Master P's No Limit Records and Cash Money Records never collaborated when the two companies were at their peaks. During an appearance on the Drink Champs podcast, Cash Money CEO, Birdman, explained that their disconnect was deeper than rap. "That shit was real. They ain’t fuck with us, we ain’t fuck with them," Birdman said 42 minutes into the conversation. "We didn’t fuck with each other, so [the artists] couldn’t fuck with each other."
Despite their differences, Master P was able to see past his previous issues with Baby and recognize Wayne's talent. "It ain't about me," P told Cannon. "I ain't even in my top five. I don't care."
