Master P’s son is cashing in big on the new era of college sports.
The rapper’s son, Hercy Miller, is capitalizing on the new rules allowing NCAA athletes to make money off their name, image and likeness beginning this month. Headed to Tennessee State to play college basketball as a freshman next season, Miller inked a deal with technology company Web Apps America that is worth $2 million over four years, he and his father told TMZ Sports.
“It’s incredible,” Master P said. “This is going to change the way college athletes want to stay in school. … This is like playing in the pros now.”
Web Apps America has committed to supporting Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Miller, 19, reportedly had scholarship offers from Power Five programs including USC, UCLA, LSU and Missouri before choosing the path less-traveled by promising recruits.
“I learned from my dad,” Miller said. “I’m going to start off by giving back to the community and everyone around me. I have a camp July 21. I’m giving back to the kids, giving school supplies.”
The one splurge? The point guard plans to get his first car by leasing a Tesla.
Master P — whose real name is Percy Miller — played two preseasons in the NBA in the late 1990s. The next generation is carrying the torch on the court.
“He worked so hard,” the rapper said. “This is a blessing. They say when you do right, blessings will keep coming to you. He’s an ‘A’ student and that’s why this company did this, because they wanted to deal with a student-athlete from an HBCU.”
