LIL' ROMEO SIGNS ON TO PLAY COLLEGE HOOPS AT USC........
April 14, 2007. Looks like Lil Romeo might have to put his rap career on hold for a while. That's because MediaTakeOut.com has learned that the 6 foot tall rapper has just received a full scholarship to join USC's basketball team.
And this isn't some king of publicity stunt either. Romeo averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists per game at Beverly Hills High as a junior this past season and was a stand out at the prestigious ABCD Basketball Camp last summer.
Demar Derozan, Romeo's future teammate and best friend explains, "He's no gimmick. He can play and is going to be one of the top point guards in the 2008 class."
And Romeo's father, Master P, seems to be glowing with pride. The rapper/producer tells, "USC is a great school and I felt like he made a great decision ... it's just great for [Romeo]."
