Lil Romeo Music Career
Romeo’s career got off to an early start when, at the age of five, he was signed to Soulja Music Entertainment, a subsidiary company of No Limit Records. The signing came about as a result of Romeo writing a rhyme for his father, Master P. After another seven years, in 2001, he made his breakthrough with the publication of the album “Lil’ Romeo” with No Limit. The album featured the number one hit “My Baby.”
The album did quite well upon its release, reaching its highest position on the Billboard 200 at number six, and its first week sales totaled more than 200,000 copies. After some time, it was awarded the RIAA’s Gold certification.
His second studio album, titled “Game Time,” was released in 2002, and it reached its highest position on the Billboard 200 list at number 33, while also reaching its highest position on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart at number 10.
The album was a financial success, selling 2.5 million copies in the United States, despite the fact that it did not fare as well as his debut album on the music charts. Romeoland, his third studio album, was released in 2004 with The New No Limit and Koch. Unfortunately, the album did not do as well on the charts as its predecessors, reaching its highest position on the Billboard 200 at number 70.
Despite this, it was a financial success once again, selling over 250,000 copies in the United States. This album marked the end of him being released with the “Lil’ Romeo” moniker attached to his credit.
In 2005, Romeo and his father established the record label Guttar Music Entertainment together. Romeo is the label’s CEO.

On November 22, 2005, the group issued their debut album under the name “Young Ballers: The Hood Been Good to Us,” which was distributed by Guttar Music.
However, the group eventually broke up. In April of 2006, Romeo published his debut solo effort, titled “Lottery,” via Guttar Music. This album was his first digital release. Not only did Guttar Music publish it, but they did so in collaboration with UrbanDigital and GoDigital Music Group as well.
This was the first album that he released under the moniker “Romeo.” In December of same year, the publication of his second digital album, titled “God’s Gift,” took place.
Romeo continued his business relationship with his father, and in 2007, the two of them founded the record company Take A Stand Records, which does not release obscene music.
In the same year, they came together to establish the group Miller Boyz, and in September of that year, they released their album titled “Hip Hop History.” He maintained his career in the music industry, releasing the solo album “Gumbo Station” in 2008 and then following it up with the compilation album “Get Low LP” in March of the following year.
Late in the year 2008, Romeo established the record company The Next Generation Entertainment and began working with the band College Boyys, whom he was a member of at the time. In May of 2010, The College Boyys released their debut studio album, titled “Spring Break,” which went on to sell more than 30,000 copies throughout the world.
