Son of legendary music mogul Master P and rapper Sonya C, entertainer Romeo has sometimes been known by the stage name Li'l Romeo. He began his own rap career in 2001 at the age of 12, with a self-titled album that featured the hit single "My Baby." He would continue his hip-hop career over the coming years, though he would eventually remove the "Li'l" from his name and simply go by the moniker "Romeo." Romeo would also embark on an acting career, making small appearances on TV, and soon made a stir with a role in the 2003 movie Honey. He would also star in his own show on Nickelodeon, Romeo!, from 2004 to 2006, and subsequently appear in films like 2007's Uncle P and 2011's Jumping the Broom.
