Only God Can Judge Me is the eighth studio album by American hip hop recording artist Master P, released in October, 1999, by No Limit Records and Priority Records.It was considered a "comeback album" for the established rapper, as 1998's MP Da Last Don was slated to be his final release. It was produced by Master P and Carlos Stephens as well as Jermaine Dupri, and features several guest contributions from fellow artist such as Nas, Jermaine Dupri, Mac, Silkk the Shocker, Mystikal and Magic.
