From Thug to HUD: Percy Miller Rebuilds Housing Projects in the NO

Awwww, Percy now joins the list of colored rappers talkin the talk minus the crip walk.  He is working with HUD to help restore housing projects in New Orleans.


Entrepreneur P.Miller recently joined HUD secretary Shaun Donovan to break ground on the newly rebuilt B.W. Cooper Housing Projects in New Orleans.

The refurnished mixed-income development represents a goal Miller had to bring development money into his community. Initially, Miller’s goal was inspired by observing mogul Donald Trump and then working with business banking and financial management specialist Keith Mays.

As always, Miller hopes his work will be an example to his old colleagues in the music industry and those throughout his native New Orleans community.

"I want to be able to show these guys look at me. I changed my image, I changed my life and I had to grow up,” Miller explained. “I’m honored to be a part of the ground breaking alongside President Obama’s right hand man Secretary Shaun Donovan who shares the same goal as me, which is to help B.W. Cooper residents get back into their new homes.”
