He is the founder of the popular label No Limit Records, which went bankrupt and was relaunched as New No Limit Records through Universal Records & Koch Records, followed by Guttar Music Entertainment, & currently now No Limit Forever Records. He is the founder and CEO of P. Miller Enterprises, an entertainment and financial conglomerate and Better Black Television.

Miller gained fame in the late 1990s with the success of his group TRU and his fifth album Ice Cream Man, which contained his first single “Mr. Ice Cream Man“. In 1997, after the success of one his biggest singles to date, “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!,” went 2x platinum, Miller grew further in popularity. Then Miller released his second platinum album Ghetto D. Miller also starred in his own street film, mostly based on his life, I’m Bout It which was very successful.[citation needed]

In 1998, P. Miller released his most successful album to date MP Da Last Don. The album was also based on a film that Miller produced, which came out earlier that year with the same name. The album hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts, selling over 400,000 copies in a week. The album was certified 4x platinum, with over four million copies sold, making it Miller’s highest selling album. In 1999, Miller released his eighth album, Only God Can Judge Me. It was not as successful as his previous album, though it still managed to reach a gold certification. Miller also starred in the movie, I Got the Hook Up, with A.J. Johnson, along with the soundtrack of the same name. On November 28, 2000, he released his ninth album, Ghetto Postage with found success selling 500,000 copies, but it did not compare to his earlier more successful releases.

In the early 2000s, as No Limit Records popularity was slowly declining, so was Miller’s. Miller would then re-launch No Limit Records as New No Limit Records. In 2001 Miller would released his tenth album entitledGame Face. In 2003, Miller starred in the film Lockdown. In 2004, Miller released his eleventh album, Good Side, Bad Side it charted number 1 on the Independent Billboards and sold 300,000 copies. The same year Miller released his first independent album Living Legend: Certified D-Boy on his new label Guttar Music, and the album only sold 75,000 copies.

In 2013 Forbes estimated Miller’s net worth at $350 million, which put him at #3 on the world’s richest hip hop figures. On December 6, 2013 Miller released his thirteenth studio album The Gift on his newly founded label No Limit Forever Records.

Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis (born 29 April 1957) is an English actor.[3] He holds both British and Irish citizenship. Born and raised in London, he is the son of Poet Laureate Cecil Day-Lewis and actress Jill Balcon. Despite his traditional actor training at the Bristol Old Vic, he is considered to be a method actor, known for his constant devotion to and research of his roles.[4][5] He often remains completely in character for the duration of the shooting schedules of his films, even to the point of adversely affecting his health.[6] He is known as being one of the most selective actors in the film industry, having starred in only five films since 1998, with as many as five years between each role.[6]

Day-Lewis is one of the most acclaimed actors of his generation and has earned numerous awards, including three Academy Awards for Best Actor, for his portrayals of Christy Brown in My Left Foot (1989), Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood (2007), and Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln (2012), a feat that makes him to date one of three male actors to win three Oscars (the other two being Walter Brennan and Jack Nicholson), and the only male actor in history to garner three wins in the lead actor category.[7] Day-Lewis has also won four BAFTA Awards for Best Actor, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, and two Golden Globe Awards.
