Master P replaces injured son Romeo on Dancing with the Stars 2

An injury has forced one of the Dancing with the Stars 2 cast members to drop out of the competition before it even began.

Romeo can’t participate “because of a basketball injury,” the AP reports, but his father, Master P, is stepping in. Master P, a “hip-hop mogul, whose real name is Percy Robert Miller, is CEO of No Limit Records,” according to the AP. He will dance with Ashly DelGrosso, who was paired with Romeo.

The show debuts Jan. 5.
