Master P has high expectations of young men, so he’s helping one former thug turn his life around on a VH1 special.
We can’t knock Percy Miller’s hustle: He went from hustling to hip-hop, and over the years he’s become something of a mogul. Now he’s pushing Torrie Jackson, to straighten up his act to on “No Excuses.” The half-hour special airs October 26 on VH1.
So who’s Torrie? He’s a former gang banger who just won’t step up and do what he needs to in order to be a good father and provider. His constant excuses are have his girlfriend at her wit’s end. If he can’t get himself together and find a job to support his son, she’s leaving him.
On his own, Torrie is easily knocked down by the slightest obstacles, but Master P is stepping in to give him that nudge in the right direction through a series of activities. Every task, including handing out fliers in a lobster suit, is geared at showing Torrie what he can really do if he’s willing to put in the effort.
To find out if is able to be responsible and save his family, watch “No Excuses” when it airs Monday, October 26, at 10:30 p.m. on VH1.
