LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Rapper and entrepreneur Master P came to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby but made time to give back to the community.
He held a free basketball clinic at the downtown branch of the YMCA.
The goal was to give inner city children the skills to succeed in life.
He says they’re not just learning the basics of basketball but learning life lessons too.
“I’m glad to be a part of this. We’re talking about compassion [and] talking about the game of life, you know his is for real. This is our families, this is for our kids because education is so important,” he said. “The kids are not only learning basketball up in the classroom, they’re learning the important game of life.”
The No Limit Forever Compassion Basketball Camp is for children ages 6 to 14.
