Master P will fill the dancing shoes of his teen rapper son, Romeo, who has dropped out of ABC's reality competition "Dancing With the Stars" because of a basketball injury.

The hip-hop mogul, whose real name is Percy Robert Miller, is CEO of No Limit Records. In recent years, he has tried out for different NBA teams, including the Sacramento Kings and the Denver Nuggets.

He will be paired with professional dancer Ashly DelGrosso for the competition, the network announced Wednesday.

The second season of "Dancing With the Stars" premieres Jan. 5 (8 p.m. EST). Other contestants include Tatum O'Neal, Drew Lachey, Tia Carrere and NFL great Jerry Rice.

In the hit summer series, Kelly Monaco (ABC's "General Hospital") and her partner beat John O'Hurley ("Seinfeld") and his partner in the finals.

However, O'Hurley won the September dance-off rematch.
