Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The quadruple X-rated urban music act Pretty Ricky recalls the earlier days of 2 Live Crew, with their tendency to bury the rap idiom in hyper-raunchy, sex-obsessed lyrics - an approach that has, not so shockingly, earned the group legions and legions of fans. Hailing from Miami, the band debuted with aptly-titled 2005 EP Bluestars, which showcases their trademark style of co-mingled southern rap and R&B. The home video companion piece to this effort, Pretty Ricky: Live from the 305, Vol. 1, intercuts live performance footage, candid behind-the-scenes concert footage of band members, and interviews with members Slick 'Em, Baby Blue, Pleasure and Spectacular.
