Is that Master P’s son? Romeo is all grown up and it looks like the older he get, the more shirtless pictures he takes. He is on his grown man and all about his business. The successful rapper, actor and ball player gets shirtless and shows his chest, six-pack and abs in the latest issue of Rolling Out. For his fashion shoot and spread, Romeo was styled by Chris Mannor. Romeo was just 12-year-old when he came into the entertainment industry. The pressure of being in this industry can be insurmountable, but somehow Romeo overcame the pressure, conquered and reached the top. He released platinum-selling albums and starred in some of the biggest movies. In the cover story, Romeo talks about coming in the industry at a young age, how he remains relevant, his acting and music career and how he makes a woman feels sexy. Below are some excerpts:
We’ve all seen how cruel the entertainment industry can be when it comes to child stars as they get older. How have you been able to remain relevant without losing focus or becoming a joke?
I think a lot of artists don’t understand the concept of change. It’s just like, life because as a kid growing up in the business, I saw my father evolve every few years. Just knowing that everything is going to change with time and nothing stays the same. I remember I used to wear baggy jeans and everybody used to have their throwback jerseys. There’s no way I would wear those kind of clothes now. But just like fashion changes, your body, mind and life change as well.
What are three things that make every woman sexy?
Education; gotta be a smart woman and independent. Good heart; everyone loves a woman who loves kids and their outlook on life is positive. You gotta know how to cook. If you don’t know how to cook then that’s a problem, especially if you’re from the South like me. And give good massages. I could keep going.
What can we expect from you as far as music is concerned?
I’m the president of the company. We’ve already sold 80 plus million records and we want to triple that. We want to make good music. When I sign somebody I look for somebody with a good heart and who wants to make a change, not necessarily perfect, but somebody like my dad, who’s not from the best neighborhood, but who wants to make a difference for their family and has that hunger. I may drop a mixtape on Twitter right before my movie opens, but y’all stay posted on that.
