The world has gone crazy and greasy R&B group Pretty Ricky is proof of this. I’m not one to knock another man’s hustle, but years ago when I first heard there was a group called “Pretty Ricky” on the scene, I said “You can’t be serious. That sounds real…not straight.”
Then I saw a music video with these skinny sons of bitches on BET dancing around in oil looking like some strippers. I made jokes of course, but I couldn’t laugh at the fact that their songs were very popular amongst the 106th and Park viewing audience. Apparently, Pretty Ricky made it cool for teenage boys to look borderline fruity. I blame them for every bitch-ass male trend that took off from there, whether they were actually responsible for it or not. White sun-shades, girly scarves, skinny nut-hugger jeans, v-necks that plunge so low you have to wear double-sided titty tape to keep ‘em on…all of that shit.
Throughout everything, I can’t even front: this song was on my guilty pleasure playlist for awhile. Pretty Ricky almost got me to look past all of their gross violations of international man-law and crimes against masculinity in general. Then, 2009 arrived and my initial concerns about the suspect nature of these ass-clowns were proven to be even more true than I could have ever imagined.
I guess I should start with the group member who put on a red speedo, challenged grown men to a grind-off, and then proceeded to air hump the entire internet. This guy’s name is “Spectacular” for Christ’s sake. We all should have expected nothing less from him. That’s like meeting a woman named “Fantasy” or “Extasy” and getting mad when you find out she works in the sex trade.
That said, y’all can get an idea of what that highly koom-see koom-saa ass video of his was like over here and judge for yourselves. Be forewarned, it’s almost as gay as the now-infamous “What What(In The Butt) video.
Now, on to the former lead singer of the group, Pleasure P. Yes, his stage name is just as ridiculous as Spectacular, but his headline was much worse. On the same day he got nominated for a Grammy, news and court documents came out showing the world that he molested a little boy in his family. Tiger Woods probably wishes that Pleasure P were more famous, because a story like that would make you easily forget about a golfer cheating on his wife. Especially since he was having sex with grown women!
Like I said before, the world has lost it’s mind, and the mere existence of Pretty Ricky is proof of this. I dare you to argue otherwise!
