Romeo Miller is only 26-years-old, but he has seen his fair share of drama in the music industry.
Romeo, aka Lil Romeo, began his rap career as a youngin’ and was known to have beef with kiddie rap’s reigning king at the time, Lil Bow Wow. But recently, Romeo took to Instagram to defend his former rival after social media slandered Bow Wow for saying he plans to retire from rap:
Dear young Superstar, as kids we should've worked together, we should've toured together, we should've made movies together. The funny thing is, I never looked at Bow as competition. The world made it that way. When he was 14 I was only 11. From them late nights of us and @chrisbrownofficial hooping at UCLA (Fyi I bust everybody ass ha), to my teen dance parties, he was there. What the WORLD doesn't know is that … Once upon a time, Bow was like my big lil bro. Although we had different views, he inspired me as a kid. Sadly this generation only cares about now, and oddly laughs at history. My pops always taught me to give people their roses while they could still smell them. Just some facts about the Lil Romeo x Lil Bow Wow saga for the fans. #tbt #wordswithrome
Romeo basically told the world to put some respeck on Bow Wow’s name and all of his pre-social media era accomplishments. He wrote, “The funny thing is, I never looked at Bow as competition. The world made it that way. Sadly this generation only cares about now, and oddly laughs at history. My pops always taught me to give people their roses while they could still smell them.”
The post comes just days after Bow Wow announced his retirement from music to focus on TV and movies.
