Lil Romeo – Where They At is one of the lesser known Lil Romeo singles which hardly gets any mention whenever people bring up his discography. This pop rap single had that Dirty South sound in the production and lyrics. The single had two song which were Where They At and My Baby.
Where They At was one of the rougher songs on the album with that Dirty South sound in the production and lyrics. For those who didn’t know, Lil D was the one rapping and chanting during the chorus. That was him.
A bunch of references to simplistic children’s nursery rhymes are made throughout the song in the form of rap. For example, Nick-nat-patty-wat give a dog a bone and big bad wolf.
My Baby is about how girls be jocking Lil Romeo because they want to be his girlfriend. But he is too young and he says he doesn’t need a girlfriend. My Baby also explains his success in music and sports.
Ex-No Limit label mate and songstress Ms. Peaches sung the chorus on Lil Romeo’s biggest hit. The song is heavily backed by the sample of The Jackson 5 – I Want You Back. My Baby was Lil Romeo’s biggest hit of 2001 and is his biggest hit to date. The music video to this song was constantly played on television channels such as Nickelodeon, BET, VH1, and MTV back in the year of 2001.
They call Lil Romeo Lil P. He represents the CP3. Calliope, ya heard me? Straight from New Orleans, Louisiana. Lil Romeo has been engaged and participating in the sport of basketball since the age of 3. That is why he has got game like Kobe Bray and is dunking like his father Master P. There ain’t no stopping Lil Romeo because he is in the zone. The clothing he wears is P. Miller wear and No Limit Gear from head to feet. It’s like that, Whodi.
Girls be jocking Lil Romeo because they want to be his girlfriend. But he is too young and he says he doesn’t need a girlfriend.
Lil Romeo was 11 years old making A’s and B’s at the time of his success and at the peak in/of his career. He had girls passing notes in class tryin to be his wife. Even at that age, he had grown women wanting to be in his life. By the time he was 18 he was not gonna be nothing nice. These little mami’s couldn’t keep their hands off him. He was a little boy but was living a big man’s life. He is part of the the next generation who came to lock it down.
As soon as Lil Romeo finishes high school, he will skip college to join the NBA Basketball League and the elites in hip hop/rap. During the time this song was being recorded and produced, basketball players were able to go join the NBA as soon as they graduated high school. That is what the lyrics, “After high school, I’m goin’ straight to the pros (bounce, bounce)” mean.
I rate this single 5/5****!!
