Master P gets slapped with substantial punitive damages for using woman’s voice without her permission:
- Rapper and producer Master P was ordered to pay $105,000 in punitive damages to a grandmother whose voice was secretly recorded and used to introduce a cut on artist Magic’s album “Sky’s the Limit.”
Superior Court Judge R. Bruce Minto said 80-year- old Geneva Burger of Pomona should receive the money from Master P because she suffered embarrassment and anxiety when she heard her voice on a “crude gangsta rap CD.”
Burger asked a friend of her grandson during a 1997 phone call, “When people get hooked on pot, can they get sick if they don’t get it?” She didn’t know the call was taped and distributed to various people. [NY Post]
