Master P’s biopic is scheduled to begin shooting this summer. The No Limit Records founder has enlisted Queen Latifah and The Wire’s Wendell Pierce for his film titled King of the South.

“The timing is right for me to tell my story,” Master P said. “It was tough back then especially being from the South, New Orleans was the murder capital at the time. I want others to learn from my mistakes and understand my work ethic of never giving up, no matter what it may look like. If you believe in yourself, keep your faith in God strong and stay close to your family, you can accomplish anything. Life is about choices, there’s no limit to your success if you work hard.”

Latifah’s role in the film is currently unknown. The rapper/actress is excited to be part of the cast though as she gets a chance to help tell the story of one of hip-hop’s biggest success stories.

“We have so much respect for what P has done in the game, we want to help make sure that his story is told authentically with A-list talent,” Latifah’s partner Shakim Compere said. “This is a great role for Queen Latifah. Master P had an amazing story and has broken a lot of barriers in hip-hop, paving the way for artists to make real money. King of the South is a real rags to riches story where moviegoers will leave the theaters inspired.

Master P plans to cast many actors from his hometown in an effort to keep it authentic. The CP3 Film Group will hold an open casting call for New Orleans natives on Tues. April 4 in Gretna, La from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The movie will begin shooting this summer.
