Master P said there was no limit and his family keeps showing you he was right.
The legendary mogul’s son Romeo made history in the entertainment industry. Now his other sons Hercy and Mercy are making waves in P’s first love, basketball.

End Of The Season
However, Hercy Miller’s freshman year at Tennessee State University has ended early. TSU’s men’s basketball team announced on Tuesday that the point guard would miss the rest of the season because of a lower-body injury.
Tennessee State expects Miller to make a return during the 2022-23 season. However, Miller didn’t start this year and averaged 10 minutes and 12 points per game in his six appearances.
Tennessee State University’s record is currently 1-5.

Miller was a 6-foot-3, three-star recruit from the Minnehaha Academy in Minnesota. He and his father announced a multi-million-dollar NIL deal in July. He is now one of the highest-paid student-athletes profiting off their name, image and likeness.
The 19-year-old signed a $2 million deal with Web Apps America, and that was before he ever set foot on a college campus. The NIL legislation went into effect on July 1, and many young athletes are receiving great opportunities.

Miller is part of a new wave of young athletes deciding to start their collegiate careers at an HBCU over a predominantly white school. Now they can add making money while at a Black college to their resume.
“I want to be a leader and a dream of mine and a goal of mine is to change the narrative,” Miller said during his TSU announcement. “I want to show people you don’t have to go to one of these big schools, Power Five conference schools, just to be great. There are a lot of great people who came out of HBCUs or mid-major schools. I want to be the next one.”
During the time, Master P revealed that attending an HBCU was left up to Hercy.
“He had a lot of big schools on the table: Vanderbilt, LSU, USC, UCLA, and I said, ‘Son, this is all your decision; you’ve got to live with whatever you do,’ ” said Master P.
Ranked as the fifth-best player from Minnesota by ESPN’s Top 100, Miller had offers from USC, UCLA, Howard, Vanderbilt, UCLA, Missouri, South Carolina, Arizona, Georgetown, and several other primary schools.
However, Hercy, isn’t the only Miller brother with basketball talents. Romeo played two seasons at USC, and his brother Mercy, at only 15 years old, has made an early commitment to play college ball for the University of Houston Cougars.
Father Knows Best
“His favorite teams was University of Houston and Duke,” Master P said to TMZ Sports. “That was his final choices, and to be able to do that as a young kid right now, he’s blessed.
“He was able to win a high-school state championship last year as a freshman and now to know what college you’re going to, it’s just gonna bring all the pieces to the puzzle together.
“Clyde the Glyde, Elvin Hayes, Hakeem Olajuwon and now you got Mercy Miller; could be on that same wall.”
The Millers have already proven they have the magic touch in music. The leader of the clan, Percy Miller, played for the Charlotte Hornets in the 1998 pre-season and the Toronto Raptors in the 1999 pre-season. His sons are keeping the family’s name alive.
