Master P is looking to ease some of the financial load for the family of Trinity Randolph, a 3-year-old girl from Louisville, Kentucky, who was shot and killed at her home with her father on Friday, Aug. 14.
The rapper and business mogul said he would pay for Randolph’s funeral expenses, and found it tragic that she’ll never get the chance to discover her talents or professional calling.
“This a 3-year-old innocent girl that’s gone from her family, from her future, somebody who could have come out of the community and be the next president, doctor, lawyer, teacher,” P told the Courier-Journal on Sunday. “This is sad.”
Louisville Police have yet to name any suspects or provide any details about the shooting. Trinity’s grandfather Tyronn Howlett, however, said Trinity was playing in her “Frozen” dollhouse before she and her 21-year-old father Brandon Waddles were killed.
On Sunday, 10 of Trinity’s family members spoke about the tragedy at a library in downtown Louisville and expressed disbelief that someone would take the life of someone so young.
“She was just 3 years old,” said Trinity’s great-grandmother Valerie Randolph. “It takes a mean, cold, selfish-hearted person to take a little 3-year-old’s life.”
The family also said that Trinity’s mother, Tynekia Randolph, will most likely not be able to return to work for some time, so a GoFundMe page was set up to assist her.
Master P has been involved in philanthropy and community work in Louisville, Kentucky, for well over a decade. In 2015, for example, at a film screening and panel discussion for “Brotherly Love,” which co-stars his son Romeo Miller, P talked about the city’s gun violence.
The No Limit Records founder covered funeral costs for Ki’ Anthony Tyus as well, a 13-year-old male who was killed in a car crash in December 2019.
