Percy Romeo Miller, son of rapper Percy Miller a.k.a Master P, is putting education over fame. The 19-year-oldĀ teen star has done what many other teen entertainers haven’t done: go to college, play basketball, and win the PAC championship. The teen superstar credits his dad for his success.

“I love to party and have fun just like any other teen. I’m not perfect, my dad’s not perfect, and although our family comes from the ghetto, we are not afraid to follow our dreams. We don’t let negative people or negative media shadow our vision. My dad always told me that if you wanted to be good in basketball, you need to go to the gym and practice; if you want to be a good student, you need to pick up a book and study. And that’s what I did.”

Romeo adds, “When people tell me that I can’t do something, it just makes me work harder at it. I started in the music business, but I’m not afraid of change,” said Romeo of making the choice to go to college. “I realize that if I further my education, and work even harder in the gym, I could have the best of both worlds. One day, I could be a pro-athlete and one day I could own a Fortune 500 company.”

  3. Thank you Jesus for blessing us with a wealthy youth who has respectable goals and not just running around like an heir-head.

  4. WOW…I almost missed this post. I am so proud of Lil Romeo. Everything he said is 100% true! College isn’t easy even if you’re wealthy so hopefully he will stick it out. He’s an definitely an inspiration.

  5. Someone said it perfectly earlier….how REFREASHING it is to see a young BLACK man putting his education FIRST: and seeing that reaching for CEO of a Fortune 500 company is just as prestigious (if not MORE so) than reaching for a shot at the NBA. Great job,parents!!

  6. As a teacher, I feel 10 feet tall after reading this story. Of the few kids I’ve encountered who see education as important, only view it as a means to the end – lots of money. It is very refreshing to see that Lil Romeo and his parents see the BIG picture.

  7. This young man said it best, He is not perfect his Dad is not perfect, but when you work at somehting good it will pay off. I am so glad to see this story. I wish him well, the Music business is Music and BUSINESS, hIS EDUCATION WILL DO HIM WELL.
