Real Name: Percy Romeo Miller Jr.

Lil' Romeo's Famous Father

It's no small wonder Lil' Romeo followed in the footsteps of his father, rapper Master P. Master P is also the CEO of No Limit Records - a successful independent hip hop label. At the age of four, Lil' Romeo began appearing on his dad's records. Lil' Romeo started his solo career at the age of 10 and he released his first CD, Lil' Romeo in July 2001. Master P realized his son's talent when he returned home from a business trip and discovered Lil' Romeo had written a rap.

Lil' Romeo's Got Game

One of Lil' Romeo's other passion, besides rap, is basketball. In 2000, Lil' Romeo went to the AAU national championships and impressed some of the NBA guards by snatching MVP at the Michael Jordan basketball camp. B-ball players, Stephon Marbury and Steve Francis have said he has incredible ball handling skills. And, despite his focus on music right now, Romeo still hasn't given up the dream to one day play in the NBA.

Lil' Romeo's Balancing Act

Over the past few years, Lil' Romeo has taken on a lot more than your average 15 year-old. He's made his mark in movies, starring opposite Jessica Alba in the 2003 flick, Honey and in a new flick with his dad called Unlce P that wrapped up filming in late 2004. He also has his own Nickelodeon show called Romeo! (which his dad also stars in). You would think that all that acting would keep Lil' Romeo too busy to make music, but in September 2004, he released a new disc called Romeoland.

Lil' Romeo - Did U Know?

  • In 1999, Lil' Romeo had a scare when he was in a car crash that killed his cousin Lance. Lance's death inspired Lil' Romeo to continue to pursue rap in Lance's memory.
  • Lil' Romeo was at a photo shoot two blocks away from the World Trade Center when the attacks occurred on September 11th, 2001, which inspired him to write the song We Can Make It Right.
  • Even with his busy schedule, Lil' Romeo manages to maintain straight A's in school!
Lil' Romeo Says...

"I still do regular things. I go to a regular private school and I have a tutor with me when I'm on the road, so I still try to do normal kid things. Walking through the mall is not as easy as it used to be, but I'm having a lotta fun making music. I guess not being able to walk through a mall without being stopped by fans for autographs is small price to pay for doing what you love."
