I think this is crazy. With all the money Little Romeo and his father have he is given a full ride. What about the real students that need the scholorship so they can attend college. How does he qualify to get it. Guess it doesnt matter his family and him are worth MILLIONS.

Wow, thats great news. Its nice to see a hollywood kid lead a somewhat "normal" life, as in not just partying and riding daddy's coattails. Good for him, I'm sure we'll see lots of great stuff from him years down the road.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

On top of all that, his father, Master P, is the one trying to help end some of the racist and violent nature in rap with a clean, positive album -devoid of using the 'n' word! Smart father, smart son! Good for them! This is how we break the cycle of hate! I wish them both all the best!!!

Yeah    

Romeo has obviously earned that scholarship in more ways than one! His parents being MILLIONAIRES doesnt mean he doesnt deserve it #6! There alot of kids who dont put forth the effort, and not only is he on the honor roll and he's a good kid, he has a tv show AAAAAANNND he's really good in Bball

How do you find time to put down a kid thats work for it, you should be ashamed!
