Master P has been accused of stiffing comedian Jess Hilarious out of money for her participation in the film I Got The Hook-Up 2.
During a visit to The Breakfast Club on Tuesday (February 21), the comedian revealed the No Limit founder never paid her for the scenes she was featured in the 2019 film. According to Hilarious, Master P is a great talker, but the same can’t be said regarding his business dealings.
“That man will talk a good game to you, like even with me, I Got The Hook-Up, I’m still owed some bread for that, I’m not gonna lie to you,” Hilarious said before explaining she got paid for one of the scenes she was featured in. “I did two scenes. He thought you used one scene, you don’t gotta pay for both of them. No, I stayed there 13 hours to do two scenes.”
Charlamagne Tha God figured people got paid per movie, but Jess Hilarious explained the film was just a bunch of skits put together, so that rule didn’t apply. She also revealed she charges “$15,000 per skit” when it comes to her appearing in films or television.

I Got The Hook-Up 2 was released in July 2019, with Master P and actor A.J. Johnson reprising their roles from the first film which came out in 1998. It was released on streaming services with a very limited theatrical release.
Jess Hilarious isn’t the first person to speak on Master P’s alleged poor business practices. The Lousiana native’s son Romeo accused him of withholding earnings from the family’s Rap Snacks brand during their very public feud last year.
The two have since patched things up, but Romeo had made it his mission to expose his father and claim he was never rightfully paid for his involvement in the brand for over a decade. Romeo explained that he was able to make the situation with the company right with no help from his dad.
“I would like to thank James and Taylor of Rap Snacks for seeking the truth and doing proper business. This year I will get my first Rap Snacks check and finally start receiving my earnings from my bags,” he wrote. “I was told as a kid that we owned Rap Snacks, and that my payday would come after we put in work and sold the company, silly me!
“I promoted a company for free for 15+ years based on the word of my pops, without being allowed to see any contracts or even meet with the team, and I stayed loyal…but I’m entitled and ungrateful now?”
He added: “Only addressing this here because my father is trying to gaslight and break me instead of taking accountability of his mistakes/greed, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
