No Limit Reunion Tour w/ Master P, Silkk the Shocker, Mystikal, Mia X, Fiend

The NFL, not possessing a strong track record of being “Bout It, Bout It,” will probably never deem these southern survivors worthy of a Super Bowl Halftime Show. But as far as label-centric Nineties rap nostalgia is concerned, this reunion tour promises to be a welcome antidote to Dre Day’s self-congratulatory gangsta pageantry. The generous economy of Master P’s value-minded release model – epic length albums dropping monthly, rappers styled as Brand X knockoffs of superstars – has survived its contemporary dismissal only to age seamlessly into today’s unceasing hip-hop pipeline. Unburdened by Aftermath ego, the No Limit soldiers – including Silkk the Shocker, Mystikal, Mia X, and Fiend – remain active combatants. Notable exception: C-Murder, jailed for a killing he probably didn’t commit, and sure to receive the night’s second loudest shout-out once P has made everyone say “UHH.” – Julian Towers
