What, you thought just 'cause C-Murder is locked up that the UK chapter of the No Limit soldiers would let you get away with this gaffe the other day?
You can try and play this off as a standard Grauniad typo if you like, but da streetz know this is yet another example of a faux-pas by Petridis (a man who Dom P once recalled had the clammiest hand he'd ever shaken) admidst one of his rapper jokes which even Jonathan Ross would've fact-checked more thoroughly. One expects such bloopers from dumb NME hacks blogging about "Gucci Man" but you're a music editor on a national newspaper, son, so step your game up.
Still, it does mean that we've finally been befallen with a convient excuse to pay tribute to Master P's The Ghetto's Tryin' To Kill Me cover and its classic title track which features none other than Silkk himself before he affixed 'The Shocker' to his moniker. Percy may have had album covers which were more elaborate or more amusing, but sometimes a perfectly executed simple photograph trumps any kind of extravegant Pen N' Pixel alchemy :
Master P ft. Silkk - The Ghetto's Tryin' To Kill Me
Although P' blatantly pillaged song concepts, rap personas, and rhyme styles from the likes of Eazy/MC Ren, Geto Boys/Scarface, 2pac, Dru Down, and The Luniz during the early Richmond era of his career he always imbued the results of his pilfering with enough of his own eccentricities to make them distinct, thus The Ghetto's Tryin' To Kill Me was his weird emo G-Funk remodelling of My Mind's Playing Tricks On Me.

For those who've only ever seen the scene where Louis meets Shaun Brauch at the Pen N' Pixel studio, here he is visiting Master P at the No Limit mansion too.
