Is Master P Dead? Master P is best known for being one of the most successful rap artists in history. He has been active since 1989, and he is a pioneer of the “Mafioso Rap” genre.
Master P is the latest celebrity to have a death hoax spread on social media. Rumors of his death started when he was hospitalized for a seizure, and many people thought that meant he died. This is not true! Master P is alive and well.
How the rumor Spread?

“Damn I lost one of my people, RIP to my Uncle and friend” (@DrizzyDoggs)
“[In memory] Rest In Peace My Uncles Brother,” tweeted by Twitter User @KylieDollars.
It is not clear who started these rumors, but it may have been in response to the recent shooting death at his son Romeo’s birthday party on Sunday evening.
It seems no one else has confirmed or denied their account being true so far and there are conflicting reports.
It’s easy to spread any kind of rumor quickly especially online. But as the internet is not a credible source, news outlets will typically only publish rumors if they’re backed up by multiple sources with solid evidence to back them up.
You might have seen on Twitter that Master P was found dead in his home this morning. The article you shared from an unknown user says “Master P” and then it links to another website about hip-hop artists who died in 2017.
There are many reasons why this is a fake news article.
Firstly, the other website that it links to doesn’t mention Master P at all in its post Secondly, you might have noticed on Twitter that every time there is a “RIP” tweet about someone who has died recently, trolls like to use some variation of his name for their own amusement.
