Ghetto D is the sixth studio album by American rapper Master P, released on September 2, 1997[5] on No Limit Records and Priority Records.

Background

Originally slated to be titled as Ghetto Dope, the name was shortened to the current title before the release due to the drug reference in the aforementioned title. The album would be one of Master P's biggest albums.

Controversy

The original album cover, which depicted a crack addict sitting on a curb and smoking from a glass pipe, was recalled from store shelves. It was promptly replaced by the collage style cover.

Chart performance

The album became the biggest-selling of Master P's career, peaking at #1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts with first-week sales of 260,000 copies.[6] It was mainly on the strength of the two singles released; "I Miss My Homies" (US #25), "Make 'Em Say Uhh!" (US #22) became hit singles in the years 1997 and 1998.[7] "Gangstas Need Love" samples Diana Ross's hit single "Missing You", while "I Miss My Homies" samples The O'Jays' song "Brandy" from the album So Full of Love. In 2008 "Make 'Em Say Uhh!" it ranked #26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. It ranked at #36 on Blender's list of the "50 Worst Songs Ever"[8] In 2008, it ranked #94 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. "Here We Go", featuring Fiend and Mystikal, was a b-side, released on the "I Miss My Homies" single. The album was certified 3x Platinum on August 4, 2006, with 3,185,221 copies sold, according to SoundScan.[9]
