Description

Ice Cream Man is the fifth studio album by Master P—rapper, entrepreneur, and label chief of No Limit Records. By this point in his canon, fans already knew what to expect from his work—hard, slumping beats anchored by rappers with hood rhymes and big personalities. Sultry hooks and at times, R&B vocals, helped the album reach No. 6 on the Billboard's R&B Albums chart. Ice Cream Man hit No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart and would eventually be the first No Limit album to go Platinum.

The album features a slew of MCs who were making waves at the time, most notably Southern stalwarts like UGK and Silkk The Shocker, the No Limit MC who furthered his career by dropping guest verses on six songs off the album.

Sonically, Ice Cream Man fuses Southern Rap with driving bass, slangy guitars, and quite a random sample palette featuring Simply Red, the Dramatics, and even a traditional children's song. The cover art bookends the whole album with imagery that would go onto to define the No Limit aesthetic, something that would be copied for years thereafter. Ice Cream Man has been reissued on 2LP vinyl.
