Those familiar with the R&B group Pretty Ricky have heard rumors that the boys have replaced lead singer Pleasure P. S2S has confirmed that those rumors are true!
After not receiving any money for his performances, Pleasure P refused to show up and perform at several shows. He was then notified that he had been replaced. Now, the newly solo singer told S2S, he’s in a legal battle with Pretty Ricky’s manager.
As far as the former group mates that he once called his brothers, Pleasure P said, “I see them in court. That’s about it.”
Pleasure P is now stepping out and doing his own thing as a solo artist. His first single, “Did You Wrong,” received constant play form urban radio stations, and he’s just dropped a new single called “Boyfriend #2.”
“What I’m saying in this record to the fellas is, basically, whatever you don’t do in a relationship somebody else will do,” Pleasure P said. “What happens when you get too comfortable is that somebody else that’s smoother than you steps in the picture, and you think it’s all good but it really ain’t. That’s the reason your girl got a boyfriend #2.”
Both singles will be on his new album, The Introduction of Marcus Cooper, which hits stores on May 5th.
The new solo artist is jumping head first into the industry calling himself the “Bad Boy of R&B.” Even though his first album hasn’t dropped yet, he’s working on his second one, which will be a tribute to his late industry friend, Static Major. The producer is best known for performing on Lil’ Wayne’s runaway hit “Lollipop.”
“My next album, I’m working on it now, it’s called Supper Time and that’s a tribute to Static,” Pleasure said. “His album was going to be called Supper Time and it never got to come out. So, I’m going to cut a lot of those records that he had out there and just tribute my second album to him ‘cause I owe him a lot.”
Outside of music, Pleasure P has several other projects in the works. The bad boy is helping women keep it sexy by dabbing around in fashion. He has a new line called Jean Addicts made for the ladies with sizes that run from 0-16.
“The clothing line is doing good. By the time the summer hits we should be in like 166 stores and we got a new line we finna [sic] put out. It’s called Candy Paint.”
Pleasure is also in the process of creating a radio show that will broadcast on Clear Channel’s K97 WHRK in Memphis, Tennessee.
