No Limit Soldiers

Key Members: Master P, Silkk The Shocker, Fiend, C-Murder, Mystikal, E-A-Ski, Steady Mobb’N, Mia X, Kane & Abel, Tre-8, Young Bleed, Mac, Big Ed, Beats By The Pound & Mr. Serv-On.

Highlights: TRU Feat. Mia X – “Bout It, Bout It,” Master P Feat. Mystikal, Fiend, Mia X & Silkk Tha Shocker – “Make Em Say Uhh!,” TRU Feat. Mia X & Mo B. Dick – “I Always Feel Like” & Young Bleed Feat. C-Loc & Master P – “How Ya Do Dat”
