From the Associated Press:

Rapper Lil' Romeo is headed to the University of Southern California to play basketball. The popular hip-hop performer signed a national letter of intent to attend USC at a news conference at a posh hotel near Beverly Hills. Lil' Romeo, whose full name is Percy Romeo Miller, is currently a senior guard at Beverly Hills High. He averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists last season. His father, hip-hop businessman Master P., had tryouts with two NBA teams in the 1990s. “This is the most important thing I've had to do and hopefully it sends a message to kids across the country that education is more important than money,” Lil' Romeo said. “Getting a college scholarship is more important than winning an American Music Award, and I plan to be the best student-athlete I can be at USC.”
