Master P is helping a child blinded by gun violence achieve a dream to become a published author … with the announcement of his new line of books.
The No Limit Records colonel tells TMZ Hip Hop he was directly inspired by the perseverance of Malachi Roberts … a Kentucky-born kid who tragically lost his sight at age 5. Malachi and his mother were innocent bystanders, shot in a December 2002 drive-by while they were in their own home.
Now, 7 years old … the prodigy’s launching his own series of children’s books in collaboration with Master P and Snoop Dogg’s developing Snoop Loopz cereal brand. The pioneering rapper recently made the trek to Louisville for the grand announcement … the first book, “Adventures with Malachi: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work” will feature characters from Snoop’s cereal.
P says the goal of Snoop’s Broadus Family Foods is to help all kids like Malachi be able to overcome adversity … especially those rooted in issues impacting their neighborhoods.
He’s confident that planting seeds of diversity in the children’s minds — and grocery stores — will help them go on to become future leaders in society.P says the books will be dropping in 2023 and, naturally, they will be available in braille.Go, Malachi!!!
