Star magazine reports Lil’ Romeo was lectured about saving his money by a woman who saw him shopping at Saks in Beverly Hills all decked out in diamonds. The 13-year-old rapper responded, “Hey, I have $7 million in the bank, and my dad Master P has $900 million – look him up in Forbes.”
Adam Bernard of Hip Hop & Soul Online spoke with Lil’ Romeo about his latest album ‘Game Time’, which the pint-sized rapper had no idea people were going flock to the store and buy. “On this album I can talk about my fans, cuz I didn’t really know if I was gonna have a fan base,” he explained. “You know, how many fans I was gonna have last year, so I made a song for my fans, and I talk more about my fans on this album.” Read more.
Rolling Stone magazine has a photo of Master P getting his nails soaked, buffed and polished in Las Vegas before the Billboard Music Awards. He explained, “I gotta be rollin’ right and tight. It makes no sense for me to have all these millions of dollars and – when I shake hands with people – my nails ain’t shinin’ like my watch.” The rapper also invites his son Lil’ Romeo to the nail salons as well. “Me and Romeo play ball a lot, and our nails get dirty. We also get massages a to stay stress-free and feelin’ good.”

Lil’ Romeo commented to Vibe magazine on being a child star. “Being a child star is tough,” he admits. “Not everybody believes in you or thinks you can do a lot of stuff, ’cause you’re a kid. I wouldn’t be doing this if my dad weren’t doing it. It’s hard being away from my family, going on tour, but it’s also a lot of good times. It feels good to know the fans really care.”
