“Some of these n*ggas is fake as f*ck,” said Pleasure P about his peers. “The idea was to do an R&B group. You got Ginuwine, Tank, and Tyrese. All of those guys from that era, they did it. You got LSG, the best from that era. They did it. My era – these n*ggas is so flaw.”
He continued, “I don’t even care if they did a group without me. I just think it would be something dope for our generation. But these n*ggas so fake.”
The former member of Pretty Ricky then questioned how many artists are making R&B music at the moment. He rattled off the names Chris Brown, August Alsina, Omarion, Mario, Bobby V, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo, The-Dream, and himself.
“Nine different artists. How many tours have you seen with all these artists on one tour? None. How many songs have you seen with anybody on a song with each other? None,” added P. “How can anybody respect the genre. They say R&B’s dead. No, you n*ggas dead, because y’all don’t want to work together to get the genre back popping.”
