The recognition is awarded to the year’s outstanding trailblazer that implemented innovative change and positively impacted the world.
Under his company P. Miller Enterprises, Percy “Master P” Miller truly personified the meaning of Influencer in 2021. Percy launched new national food and beverage brand LA Great, Master Crunch Cereal and Soldier Snacks, all the while continuing to build the Rap Snacks empire through the expansion into Rap Noodles and Uncle P products. In the spirit of inclusion of all, he launched a diversity program We are One Family, to encourage leading grocery stores to include products on the shelves from people of all races and genders.

His passion for philanthropy brought Percy to sponsor a free basketball and life skills camp in Nashville for kindergarteners to third graders, open a grocery store in partnership with Rouses at Guste Homes, a senior center located in a food desert, and lead a water donation to the residents of New Orleans after Hurricane Ida devastated his hometown of New Orleans.
