Percy Miller, aka rapper Master P, has been cut from the Denver Nuggets' summer league team. The CEO of No Limit Records was among players trimmed from the squad before the basketball team's practice on Monday.

"[Miller] thanked me and was very respectful," summer league coach Scott Brooks told The Denver Post. "I was impressed. I heard some questionable stories from other teams. He worked hard. But he even knew it and said he wasn't in shape."

In the late 1990s, Miller made it all the way through training camp with the Toronto Raptors and Charlotte Hornets before being cut. He has also logged time with the Continental Basketball Association's Fort Wayne Fury.
