Review: Lil Romeo – Sampler

The Lil Romeo – Sampler was an album sampler on CD & cassette that issued out by No Limit Records and Priority Records to promote his self-titled debut album in the summer of 2001. The sampler was a single.

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.

Little Star is Lil Romeo’s take on and cover of the children’s nursery song and lullaby Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Erica Fox covers the chorus with her. Lil Romeo is searching around for puppy love in this song. Similar to how Lil Bow Wow was during that time.

Now not many people know this but Erica Fox was singing under the alias of Allusion. That is her singing the chorus. Interestingly enough Erica Fox was off the No Limit label by this point. So Master P must have made the executive decision to change her name in the songwriters credits to Allusion instead of her legal name.

Notice the way Lil Romeo starts off the song. He starts off the song in a militaristic style which is a militaristic chant.

[Intro: Lil Romeo]
Hut 1, Hut 2
Hut 1, Hut 2
Hut 1, Hut 2

Lil Romeo is looking for a girl who can show him around and hold it down for him. Lil Romeo is looking for puppy love. He can’t explain the way he feels. He’s a little young for this. When he sees her, all he seems to feel is happiness and her beauty. Her beauty is unusually extravagant. That is how beautiful she is. Lil Romeo won’t stop until he gets through to her. He shows how persistent he is with these lyrics, “Ain’t gone stop ’til I get thru to you”. He will bring her everything in her life she can think of.

What’s ya name Ma
I wanna hang Ma
Feel like takin’ a ride on the swang Ma
You my queen Ma
Be ya king Ma
I bring you everything in ya life you can think Ma
If we were older I’d give you a ring Ma
Take you to the concert where they sing Ma
For now I’mma let you do ya thing Ma
But if ya man turn out
He’s not getting’ a thing Ma

Erica Fox sings and covers the chorus with her own twist.

[Chorus: Allusion]
Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder where you are
Let’s bounce to the spot
Baby take a ride
This song is just for you and I
Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder where you are
Let’s bounce to the spot
Baby take a ride
This song is just for you and I

The girl Lil Romeo is looking for and getting after is hot from her feet to her braids. Dimples in her cheeks. She love to eat sweets. Lil Romeo purchased himself a baby Hummer so him and her can creep. Lil Romeo has a cell phone incase she wants to speak to him. Every time she speaks, he swears my heart skips. It’s warm inside and hot like July. He get butterflies when he looks in her eyes. This can’t be wrong. It feels too right. Turn the music up. Dim the lights. Rome-e-rome is in the zone tonight.

The Girlies is the Caribbean inspired love song about how girls love Lil Romeo. The song is backed by a beautiful harp and a beautiful acoustic guitar over pop rap beats.

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. 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.

I rate this single 5/5*****!!
