The son of rap mogul and No Limit Records founder Master P, 14-year-old Romeo broke through the hip-hop maze in 2001 with his self-titled debut which featured the smash single My Baby, a fun, rollicking track noted for its recreated loop from the Jackson Five's I Want You Back.
With his clean, crisp style and wholesome good looks, Romeo gave young fans something to scream about. And their screams registered loud and clear at record stores across the nation to the tune of some 1,000,000 albums to be exact. Those screams were also heard around the music industry as Lil' Romeo nabbed the 2001 Billboard Music Award for Rap Artist of the Year and Rap Single of the Year for My Baby. My Baby set records in 2001 when it entered the Billboard singles charts at Number One, making Romeo the youngest artist to ever do so on a solo project.
Like the Jackson Five before him, Lil' Romeo ushered in a sound that touted catchy, danceable beats for young adults topped by fun, lighthearted lyrics for his peers. Truly his father's son, Romeo shares P's passion for music and basketball and much to his parents' delight, he is a straight 'A' student. But that's not all. With his new Nickelodeon TV show, aptly named Romeo! (in which he stars with his dad), the young artist added acting to his list of talents, making him a truly well-rounded superstar destined for longevity. Lil' Romeo's sophomore album, Game Time, was released in December 2002.
