There are many events in rap history that are either unknown or forgotten, from album releases to deaths to random ass events most of us can't even recall. As an attempt to remember those moments, Complex will share an event that helped shape hip-hop in a sometimes minor, sometimes major way. Join us as we look back on This Day in Rap History.

February 5, 2004

On February 5, 2004 Master P presented himself at a federal courthouse and pled guilty to tax evasion. In 1996, the No Limit co-founder failed to file a corporate tax return for one of his various companies—Bout It Incorporated—which led to him having to pay fines of up to $200,000. To make matters worse, Master P was served with court papers for an unrelated case before entering the Louisiana courtroom. That sucks but how awesome is it that Master P had a company called "Bout It Incorporated?"
