Lil’ Romeo

Lil' Romeo

Percy Romeo Miller Jr, or more commonly referred to as Lil’ Romeo, is a celebrated American personality. Born on August 19, 1989 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Miller is the son of Hip Hop star Master P.  He is not only an outstanding singer and rapper, but has become a successful actor, basketball player and entrepreneur at the mere age of 25. While Miller has been affiliated with a host of signing records, most notably No Limit Records, The New No Limit and Guttar Music, he has consistently released popular albums since the early 2000s. What sets this great rapper apart from others in the field is the fact that he is the youngest musician to hold the #1 slot on the Billboard 200 list, a feat previously held by the Michael Jackson.

Belonging to a well-acknowledged family of rappers and musicians, Miller rose to prominence in the early 2000s when he signed with No Limit Records and released a single by the name of “My Baby”. Such was the reception of this single that he landed at #1 on the Billboard 200, while also subsequently achieving Platinum status. This single was part of Miller’s first album, Lil’ Romeo (2001). The album landed the No. 6 slot on the Billboard 200 as well as acquiring the No. 5 place on another rating list, the Top R&B &Hip-Hop Albums. Miller’s debut album also managed to sell more than 200,000 copies in the first few weeks, eventually gaining Gold status. After signing on with another record label called New No Limit, Miller set out to release another spectacularly received album in 2002, called Game Time. While not coming close to the sales made by the previous album, Game Time charted at no. 33 on the Billboard 200 and No. 10 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. It also featured two songs, “2-way” and “True Love”, the former charting at no. 66 and the latter taking no.16 on the Hot Singles list. The same year, he also began his own TV show called Romeo!, which successively aired for 3 seasons. In 2003, Miller made his acting debut with a role in Honey, a dance film with lead roles taken by Jessica Alba and Mekhi Phifer.

The period post 2004 was a little bumpy for the Hip Hop star. With the release of his first independent album, Romeoland, only 300,000 copies were sold throughout the United States. In 2005, Miller considered working in a group with his brothers and cousins, naming it Rich Boyz. Their first collaborative album was called Young Ballers: The Hood Been Good to Us, but unfortunately managed to sell only 10,000 copies worldwide. Working now with Guttar Music, the record label he found along with his father, Miller released two albums called Lottery and God’s Gift in 2006. The latter became the sound track for a film of the same name, selling over 100,000 copies. A year later, he worked on his first project with his father, Master P, on what was to become an album by the name of Hip Hop History. After 2008, Miller struggled with releasing his fourth studio album, which was eventually released as a mix tape titled I Am No Limit, in 2011. Miller’s most recent project was on a new mixtape, Rome Everything, set to have been released in 2014.
