The two met during Essence Fest and P says the “energy wasn’t there.” He was expecting a more welcoming interaction with Tyler Perry during their first time meeting. Master P said, “I bumped into Tyler Perry…but it was awkward. I thought we was going to embrace each other. I think that people are afraid when they see me, because they know I’m so independent. And I’m doing this, so I don’t know, am I threatening to them or whatever. I’m ready to embrace him, like a Black man from New Orleans. Like, I’m happy for you brother…but the energy wasn’t there.” P shaded Tyler Perry for building his career off playing a man in drag as the beloved Medea. “I wouldn’t put on a dress to be in a movie. My morals are different. I don’t care how much money, I just wouldn’t do it,” says Master P. Master P was hoping Tyler Perry would acknowledge his efforts as a filmmaker. “I woulda thought he’d be happy, another brother from New Orleans…it wasn’t a bad thing but it wasn’t what I expected.”
