*New Orleans native Master P is weighing in on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, calling the nation’s worst environmental disaster “a tragedy” that will have massive repercussions for the rest of the country.

“It’s definitely something that’s another tragedy for our community,” he told Allhiphop.com. “You have to realize we have to prepare for this but you never know when something like the oil spill will happen.

“It’s out of control and it’s killing the animals and the business (for) people that do fishing in that area. People don’t realize how this is going to affect the entire country.”

The BP rig off the state’s coast ruptured in April, sending a massive slick drifting towards the shoreline. Experts are still attempting to find a way to stem the leak.
