Rapper Romeo -- who used to go by Lil' Romeo -- is being replaced on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" reality hit by his dad, Master P.

A basketball injury has knocked Romeo out of the competition, TV Week reported Wednesday.

Master P played professional basketball last summer for the Sacramento Kings. The superstar who has sold more than 75 million albums will be partnered with professional ballroom dancer Ashly Delgrosso.

The new season of "Dancing With the Stars" kicks up its heels Jan. 5.
