Speaking to some 800 cheering students, Master P discussed the importance of education, becoming financially literate and developing a vision for success. "Y'all know I started off on the wrong track," so he told students in the gym. "The most important thing I've done with my life is clean my act up. I'm sorry for making the music that I made without thinking about y'all."
At the end of the meeting, Master P made the students a promise, "If the principal tells me y'all have a good year, I'm going to bring Romeo back to do a concert."
