Master P: CEO of New "Better Black TV"...

Via Black Voices

After finding much success with his bawdy brew of southern fried hip-hop, Percy Miller – who officially changed his name from Master P last week – is making waves in the television arena, promising something "better."

On Aug. 15, the former No Limits Records rap sensation announced the launch of Better Black Television (BBTV), described as a family friendly network that will provide positive content for a black and brown culture that will appeal to all races with a goal to bring people of color a choice when turning on their television.

According to a statement the content on the channel will contain a wide arrangement from health and fitness, animation, financial planning, reality TV, sitcoms, dramas, movies, responsible hip-hop music and videos, politics, sports and entertainment news, educational children's shows as well as teen and family programming.

"Better Black Television has been a vision of mine for some years," said Miller, who assumes the position of the channel's Chairman & CEO. "I've done a lot to promote and change the way messages are relayed to our children and our families over the last few years."

  1. It's definitely an idea in the right direction. And it sure has a wide range of t.v. shows on its list. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out. I hope it goes well- b/c it's much needed.
