I was reading this outstanding article today c/o The Smoking Section entitled "Why Pretty Ricky Should Be Executed". It was a thoroughly researched and just argument, and I feel no jury would be able to come to another conclusion.
I did feel however, that one point raised, Exhibit E, AKA Butta Creame, the band Pretty Ricky 'signed' (implying they are able to read and write, which we all know cannot be true) actually warrants a unique hearing all of its own...
At first, the image provided just makes you think - amateur r&b girl group in desperate need of a stylist. Upon watching the video for their single Sugar Daddy I felt they should be tried on their own, on thousands of counts. They key point being:
Desecrating the memory of 90s r&b girl groups and icons with their alternative nightmarish vision of what would happen if you crossed TLC, SWV & Aaliyah with Khia then threw water on the whole mess & fed it after midnight.
The video is so extreme in it's horror I started to doubt the authenticity of the group - is this a smoke screen created by Pretty Rickys management to draw the world's attention away from just how incredibly heinous they are? We were all under the impression there was nothing worse in the world than Pretty Ricky, and if this fact is true then how could Butta Creame really exist? This is the case I put to you faithful readers, watch this video and decide for yourselves.
