Lil Romeo, Rap Snacks CEO, has proven that he’s got his head squarely on his shoulders.
Click HERE to read about a golden opportunity he passed on to focus on his education.
You better make yo Daddy some money….
Go ahead lil romeo….he’s been doin big things! I can seem him takin basketball far….
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…:)
Good for you Romeo!
GO Romeo and Go Master P and Mrs. P for doing the dang thing and instilling this core value of responsibility in him.
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…
Good choice. He’s going to do just fine.
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 :(
@ I’m Just Me (GIVE ME A QUARTER AND I’LL TELL YOU YOUR FORTUNE)
Dats how we do it.
Lil Romeo is handlin his the right way, all dat other stuff will fade away, but his education will always be there.
I wish this story would get more coverage – it sets a great example.
Way to make your family proud. Much success.
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!
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…
Good for him! Get that degree, THEN make those movies. Nice to see young men making something positive with their lives.
