Rap Mogul Master P Wants Pelicans Head Coaching Gig

Rap legend Master P wants to be the next head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans.

The team just fired Stan Van Gundy after one season and there are reports Zion Williamson's family isn't too happy with the franchise.

Master P things he's the man for the job, saying, "They gotta do something different, unique."

Percy played preseason ball with the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors in the '90s, and previously coached San Antonio Spurs star DeMar DeRozan at the AAU level.

He tells TMZ, "I played in the NBA, I done coached a lot of great players that are in the league. I done took my sons from being high school athletes to maybe they'll be the next future big-time pro athletes."

"If they bring me in as a head coach or assistant coach, I think I can change the game!"

As for the reports regarding Zion, P says, "We'll win and Zion will be happy. Everything! I feel like it's motivating the players and understanding them, that's the most important thing."

P added, "The NBA is entertainment. I think it's time for me to be the first hip-hop coach."
