Luxurious Bradbury mansion is for sale at $78 million

With the global recession having been more or less, a thing of the past, the real estate market in America seems to creeping towards its glory days again. It’s a mansion in Bradbury, named the ‘Bradbury Estate’, which is on the market for a price tag of $78 million. However, for a mansion estate to be of this size and of such grandeur, the price tag seems just about right: not all properties make you feel like a member of the royalty, or a true business tycoon like this one does. Yester years’ matured aesthetics, with minimalistic yet state-of-the-art modernity blend together to create this mansion that also boasts of some of the best views of nature and the city skyline.

How Master P Turned $10,000 Into A $350 Million Business Empire

Master P was raised in the Calliope housing projects, one of the most violent and drug infested areas of New Orleans. P planned to get his family out of the ghetto by playing in the NBA. After high school, he won a basketball scholarship to the University of Houston. Unfortunately P’s NBA dreams were dashed after he suffered a severe knee injury during the first few months of freshman year. After the injury, Master P left Houston and transferred to Merritt Junior College in Oakland to be closer to his family which had recently moved to the nearby city of Richmond. Determined to make something of himself and help his family live a better life, he soaked up as many business classes as he could at Merritt. In 1990, tragedy struck when P’s grandfather was killed in a work related accident. The one bright side of the accident was that it left Percy with a $10,000 malpractice insurance settlement check.

Armed with $10,000 and two years worth of junior college business classes, Master P decided to open a record store. He found a dilapidated building and struck a deal with the owner that gave him the first three months rent free in exchange for cleaning and renovating the storefront. The 21 year old future mogul soon launched “No Limit Records & Tapes” on San Pablo Avenue in Richmond, California. To reduce costs in those early days, Master P lived in a tiny storage room in the back of the shop with his wife Sonya and their one year old son, Percy Romeo Miller, Jr (AKA the future Lil Romeo). No Limit Records & Tapes mainly sold West Coast gangster rap albums with an emphasis on local East Bay artists like Tupac, Too Short, Rappin 4 Tay and E-40. Within a few months, the store was a hit in the community and in 1991 Master P began selling his own self produced album “Get Away Clean” through the newly launched “No Limit Records” label. To support the album, Master P set out on a West Coast tour as the opening act for Tupac and Too Short. Along the way, P connected with as many promoters and DJs that he could find. In 1992, after Master P’s second album “Mama’s Bad Boy” sold more than 150,000 album independently, he decided to move No Limit Records back to New Orleans in order to make a real run at the label business. By 1994, his third album “The Ghettos Tryin to Kill Me!” sold an unheard of 250,000 units independently and No Limit Records grossed more than $900,000!
