    THIS IS WHAT LIVESTEEZ SAYS:

    Rapper Lil Romeo has passed up a starring role in new movie “Sweetwater,” so he doesn’t lose his college basketball eligibility. The son of music mogul Percy “Master P” Miller, Romeo Miller, this year begins playing for the University of Southern California, where he’ll have to abide by strict college athlete rules.

    The school’s directives require that the 18-year-old has to be a full-time student and can not accept hand-outs or cash favours from potential sponsors, agents or professionals. In “Sweetwater” Miller was set to portray the first African American player signed by America’s National Basketball Association, according the WENN News.

    “Romeo has agreed to abide by all NCAA regulations, but I think a lot of their rules will need to be updated to take into account a person of his magnitude and his past accomplishments,” the rapper’s father said.

    “I couldn’t be more proud of my son’s decision to choose education and athletics over money. Being a student athlete takes a lot of hard work and discipline.”

    Lil’ Romeo says that Master P – his dad – always insisting that he learn as well as play in school: “Being raised in poverty-stricken New Orleans, I know first hand what it’s like to have nothing, and to see what my dad has done with his education, goals, and opportunities has really opened my eyes.

    “Now I’m grown up and I’m setting my own goals and with the right education, I know there’s no limit.”

    Sunset Pictures, the production company behind the new sports film, supports Miller’s decision and has committed to working with Miller on future projects once he completes college.

    now that I’ve read the story, this is real good news to hear about….turned down a movie role just to abide by NCAA rules….stay in college !!! It only goes uphill from there…:)

  • Tired

    Good for you Romeo!

  • I'm Just Me (GIVE ME A QUARTER AND I'LL TELL YOU YOUR FORTUNE)

    GO Romeo and Go Master P and Mrs. P for doing the dang thing and instilling this core value of responsibility in him.

  • Aunt Viv

    Good lookin’ I’m Just Me for the Livesteez reprint.

    I’m proud of Romeo. Good for him. Get that education, play that ball, and help your daddy with his finances…

  • Ms. T.

    Good choice. He’s going to do just fine.

  • I'm Just Me (JOSH ALLEN'S # 1 STAN!!! GO JOSHIE, GO JOSHIE)

    Um…so sad. A famous black young man is doing the righ thing and putting money aside for his previous education committments and we only get 10 postesr. SMDH😦

    Way to make your family proud. Much success.

  • Its6amHoGetOut

    Now doesnt this make all you deep south mofo’s happy?

    Master P sold ya’ll all those sh*tty albums, movies and phone service for 5 years took his $300 million then got the f*ck outta New Orleans and moved to Beverly Hills. Now his son gets to play for USC!

    See what can happen if you put down that weave, weed, 40’s, start using birth control, stop trying to be a rapper and get a job?

    You could move outta there too!

  • MusicLoveLife

    I’m really happy for him. For the first time a young, famous, black brother has chosen the wisest, most admirable choice. Now, if only others would follow in his footsteps…

  • Shan

    Good for him! Get that degree, THEN make those movies. Nice to see young men making something positive with their lives.

  • http://yahoo.com intuitivepisces

    @ K

    I second that. We need more “celebrity gossip” like this!

  • LoatheKim

    There are alot of rumors saying USC only signed him because his friend from Compton High some really rough looking guy and I forget his name but he would only sign if they signed Romeo too, the Compton guy is hyped up to be the next Kobe/LeBron -taking the one and done year thing – you’ll hear about him in next year’s draft.

    Congratulation Romeo and to his parents…uh, Mr. and Mrs. P (I guess)!!

    Though there would have been no condemnation if he had opted for the role, it is refreshing to see that he has made education his top priority.

    Hopefully, this will send a message to those who are planning to continue there education.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

  • me

    of course this story wont get much publicity because its about a young black male doing something positive and placing priority on education instead of money and fame. that is sooo refreshing to read. i hope more young black men follow in his footsteps. good job to p and his wife for raising their child right

    I WISH YOU WELL

    This goes out to you and you and you

    You know who you are

    Hmm hmm hmm

    When glory days turn to stormy nights

    You must have been so petrified

    Didn’t you, didn’t you feel so cold

    You against the world in a losing fight

    Captive of your demons inside

    So you sought an enemy

    (I’m not your enemy. He lives in you, you know it’s true)

    Like times before to mock ignorantly

    (But the Lord said love, love your enemy so just…)

    Take heed to the Word it’s time

    Check Proverbs 19:29

    Don’t cry

    I wish you well

    I wish you well

    I wish you well

    I truly wanted solidarity

    Still wearing my blinders back then

    (So much I didn’t see)

    I weep for what I dreamed we all could be

    I’ll keep you in prayer till the end

    Still bruised, still walk on eggshells

    Same frightened child, hide to protect myself

    (Can’t believe I still need to protect myself from you)

    But you can’t manipulate me like before

    Examine first John chapter 4 verse 4

    And

    I wish you well

    I wish you well

    I wish you well

    Be strong in the Lord and power of His might

    If my shows of gratitude are miniscule

    Inside your mind, sorry

    (I’m so sorry, please forgive me)

    There’s only so much I can do I love you and did all that I could

    Maybe when you’re cursing me

    You don’t feel so incomplete

    But we’ve all made mistakes

    Felt the guilt and self-hate

    I know you’ve been there for me plenty

    Maybe still got love for me

    But let him without sin cast the first stone brethren

    But who remains standing then

    Not you not I see Phillipians 4:9

    (Put it into practice and the God of Peace will be with you)

    So

    I wish you well

    I wish you well

    I wish you well

    (He who the Son sets free is free indeed)

    No weapon formed against me shall prosper

    Surely God is my salvation

    I will trust and not be afraid

    The Lord, the Lord is my salvation

    I will trust in Him

    Yes, I know that I know that I know that I know

    But I have had God’s help to this very day

    And so I stand here and testify

    To small and great alike

    So the more you curse me

    The more you’re blessing me

    The Word said it

    Love your enemies

    Do good to those who curse you

    Pray for those who mistreat you

    Psalms 129:2

    They have greatly oppressed me from my youth

    But they have not gained victory over me

    (In Jesus’ name)

    I wish you well BY MARIAH CAREY

    He that keeps his mind state on the Lord

    He will keep them in perfect peace

    The Importance of a father.

    The security a home has when a father is a vital part of a childs upbringing just shows how a young man/woman can see himself/herself and his/her future.

    A good look for them.

    we need our daddies

  • I am the light beyond the shadows

    The only limits one faces are the limits we put on our self’s.

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting the outcome to be different.

    Tough times don’t last, tough people do.

    Today is a blessing and a gift.

  • Elo

    Lil Romeo isn’t so little anymore…glad he has bigger goals.

  • Lauren

    Smart Move Romeo….

    This will be better for him in the long run, if he is that good of a basketeball player a check from the NBA will be much sweeter than a check from a movie….
