Pretty Ricky Biography (Wikipedia)
Pretty Ricky is an American R&B/hip hop group originated from Miami, Florida. Pretty Ricky originally consisted of four brothers: Corey "Slick'em" Mathis, Ala Diamond "Baby Blue" Smith, "Spectacular" Blue Smith, and Marcus "Pleasure P" Cooper who is the group's only singer since the rest of them take roles as rappers. They all have the same father, Joseph "Blue" Smith Sr., but only Spectacular & Baby Blue have the same mother. The name of the band was taken from a character in Martin Lawrence's comedy series, Martin (1992-1997). "We all used to dress alike, really different to everyone else. We wore fur in the summer when everyone else was in t-shirts," Pleasure explained. "On the show was a character called 'Pretty Ricky.' He was slick and always dressed different to everyone else, so all the girls at school started calling us 'Pretty Ricky'." They had great success with singles such as "Grind With Me" and "On The Hotline" with albums such as Late Night Special and Bluestars. Pleasure P left the group in 2007 to embark on a solo career. Since then, Pretty Ricky has replaced the lead singer numerous times with ex-members 4Play, Mowet, and Lingerie. Since 2015, Pleasure P has reunited with the group releasing their latest single "Puddles" and preparing a final album and tour for 2017.
