Romeo – Gumbo Station was one of the lesser known albums from Guttar Music, Take A Stand Records, and No Limit Records. R&B singer Bobby Valentino produced songs for the album while Myke Diesel and Master P oversaw management for the entire album. R&B singer Bobby Valentino worked as a producer with Romeo on the album Gumbo Station. Bobby Valentino had already collaborated with Romeo on the soundtrack of his movie God’s Gift back in 2006. The album also included production by Dr. Dre. Pop rap meets Southern rap and gutta street rap on this album.
The album was his second collaboration with his brother Valentino Miller. A lot of different artists made appearances on the album. Master P even raps on the album. He mentioned on his MySpace page that Gumbo Station is going to be his best album yet. Romeo had a feeling and an instinct that his Gumbo Station album was going to be something special.
Romeo called his 5th album Gumbo Station because gumbo has a lot of different variety. This album has a lot of different variety. He just really wanted to do something different, something unique. So that’s why he called his 5th album Gumbo Station.
Songs recorded for the Gumbo Station album were Special Girl with Marques Houston of B2K, Rock It with Mizz Kitty, I’m Fly with Young V, Silver Surfer, and Better. The singles from the album were Rock It with Mizz Kitty and Special Girl with Marques Houston of B2K. Rock It with Mizz Kitty was the second single off the Gumbo Station album. His songs he recorded had a mixture of feelings, sounds, rhythm, treble, and emotions. The songs were types of songs which will make you laugh, others cry, or even dance.
Romeo – Gumbo Station was originally slated to be released on Guttar Music, Take A Stand Records, and No Limit Records on the month of May 2007. Romeo said in a May 7, 2007 issue of Jet Magazine that Gumbo Station would be released the month of May 2007.
However this did not happen as Romeo enrolled at the University of Southern California with a D-I (Division 1) offer. The main reason why this album was not released that year was because Romeo was concentrating more on his basketball career and collegiate studies than his music career.
The release date for Romeo – Gumbo Station was pushed back to February 14, 2008. The album was scheduled for a release date on February 14, 2008. However this did not happen.
The release date for Romeo – Gumbo Station was pushed back again to the end of April 2008. However the album was never released on this date as promised and for whatever the reason(s) may be, the Romeo – Gumbo Station album still remains unreleased.
Interestingly enough, his 2009 album, Get Low, contained singles that were originally supposed to had been on the Gumbo Station album and also contained original songs from his previous albums.
Romeo is looking special kind of girl who can give him something unique in terms of feelings and experience with his sweet love song Special Girl with Marques Houston of B2K. Romeo and Marques Houston lets these dudes know it ain’t bout just having a girl but it’s about having that special girl. Every good doctor has to have some kinda relationship with their patient. Right? To sum it all up… Special Girl is about having that special girl. There ain’t nothing like this girl in this world. She is special to him (me).
Now you know Romeo is the type of thug whose chain hangs low with the all white. From New Orleans but the dude doin all right.
Well Rome is looking for the special girl that is just right for him. She eye candy to the eyes he has been blessed twice. Light skin corn rows. It don’t get better. He’s got a nice life. All he needs is a wife. I mean the way she moves make Romeo wanna drop the mic. In the end it’s just Romeo and her. She was made for him and he was made for her. Cant nobody do Romeo like her. Romeo is on cloud nine hitting his head all the ceilings.
I can’t really describe this feeling Romeo is getting. It’s more than them goodies. I heard people Romeo’s my pimp game slippin. They 64 switchin up.
No matter what people say she is his girlfriend. No need to let the homies hate. She is his best friend. They still are gonna do our thing. They gonna be together.
Pullin’ Up is a Romeo and Bobby Valentino duo produced by Bobby Valentino. Romeo and Bobby Valentino give these dudes a reality check. They don’t know what’s real. You ain’t pulling up like Romeo, home boy. Its about that time, man. You ain’t ready.
When Romeo and Bobby Valentino pulling up, the girls they stop and stare. Haters hate on them. When Romeo is pulling up he sees his wrist hanging out the window waiting patiently in something foreign something foreign next to him. Listen to this. His music’s bumpin. They keep coming down the streets.
His grill is shining with an earlobe of karats. Bank rolls of cabbage. A chick is just smiling. But if you have two then chicks get violent. They follow Romeo like Simon. Romeo is not your average person. He’s God’s gift. Romeo is a solider. Romeo is all of that. Posted up on the block where then hustlers at. Blend in with the Saints. When something ain’t right, he calls the hood back. The son of a hustler and that’s a fact. Black tint, black whip, black chick, and black kicks.
Back to the chicks. They come from all places.With a body like Beyoncé and eyes like Asians. Tall model chicks with to the prettiest faces. Romeo sees some cuties with some bootys. Even Caucasians. Romeo is pulling up and all the haters are hating. He keeps the ground shaken like an earthquake.
Romeo discusses how he wears his fitted baseball cap on his song called Fitted Cap. Romeo rocks his P. Miller gear in his fitted cap. A fine example of Southern rap.
Romeo rocks his P. Miller gear in his fitted cap. He is all in the club. Pulling hoes in his fitted cap. Romeo is decked in his fitted ride which has trucks with the windows tinted. Guttar Boyz are in it. I don’t think you dudes serious. You’s a scrimmage. You see Romeo step out with P. Miller rims and a fitted jeans blingin that are dripping in embedded custom-made fashion. And he hangs around with guerrillas.
He keeps the rim to his cap low. Even it can took it to the right. When he turns the rim to his cap to the back, that means Romeo is bout to fight. You know Romeo is ready. He has got a lot of platinum.
Romeo has something special you never seen in his money green fitted cap 20s on Cutlets and 26s on the limousines. 38s when he is going out on a date. Lil Romeo shows he has not forgotten about his hustler roots with these lyrics: Son of a hustler I had to sell nice cream. And if he feels some kind of beef is about to go down, he just turns it to the back.
Young V has his hat to the side. He might be young but he is a beast with it. Freaky like a searcher starched up and lean and freeze in it. So he can ball in it and hit them ball in it. Young V is a rich boy she ain’t gotta steal, shorty.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
