Pretty Ricky Gets Nude For VIBE Magazine


Okay, so not all of the members in Pretty Ricky got nekkid for the photo shoot, but at least one member did. And as you'll be able to see from the picture below, it's done really tasteful.

The latest issue of VIBE magazine has a rather informative article on the rebirth of Miami's beloved and dramatic R&B group, Pretty Ricky. In the story, everything from the lawsuit with former member Pleasure P to their less than amicable split with producer Jim Jonsin is discussed in blunt fashion.

As always, the boys of Pretty Ricky are still being chased by girls, breaking hearts and making good ('90s style R&B) music. But what's best about this particular article is seeing how cohesive they seem with their new lead singer, Christopher "4Play" Myers at the helm. The guys in the group are still all under 25, hell, 4Play is just 19, so they've got plenty of vitality left in their careers. Hopefully this is the rebirth of something special.

The folks at VIBE haven't put the article online yet, but the issue hits newsstands across the country this week so pick one up if you want to read the story! Interestingly enough, As I was cruising the website, I noticed that for the past year, Pretty Ricky has maintained a rather funny relationship column at the site as well. So after you've clicked on our stellar Magic City Kitty sex advice column and you still want more, check in with Pretty Ricky's monthly series to see what the hometown heroes have to say.
