I sat down with Pleasure P a few days ago during his private listening session for his upcoming solo project entitled “The Introduction of Marcus Cooper.” Prior to us getting down to business, P decided to go ahead an answer the one burning question that was on everyone’s mind: What the hell did he think of his former Pretty Ricky bandmate Sexy Spec’s Grind Challenge video? The answer surprised quite a few of us, since those red speedo’s and fruity spins were fresh on all our brains:
I ain’t gone let y’all sit and talk bad about him…because I was once in a group with him and I’m never gonna forget that. I was on the stage with him and we had a lot of good times. I would never let nobody talk bad about him around me. While I’m here, if y’all would please just keep down your comments and stuff…. I just want him to do his thang and that’s what he’s doing and I’m doing me. That’s the best way I can handle this situation.
And if I were your homeboy, I would do the same thing. If I was in a group with you, even if we don’t talk, even if we ain’t cool no more… I would never throw you under the bus. Never.
Pleasure P’s a real stand up dude! I can really respect that. *sigh* OK…since we got that out the way early, we were all free to enjoy the unreleased music we voluntarily came to hear. I was actually quite impressed by several tracks.
Peep a few samples from Pleasure P’s upcoming album below as well as his explanation as to why he finally left Pretty Ricky:
“Let Me Just” (above) was definitely the crowd favorite…hands down! But there were several cuts on the cd that struck me. It’s already been dubbed “Sex Soundtrack” for 2009 because of the sexy lyrics and beats. I was highly impressed!
Pleasure P also revealed why he left Pretty Ricky, why it took him so long and the inspiration behind his new album below:
“I’m solo now and everyone around me is doing much better…”
Shouts out to Moses Davis of Warner Music Group for the invite!
Pleasure P’s new solo project, “The Introduction of Marcus Cooper” hits stores June 9th.
