Three members of the group are related to one another.
During tonight’s episode, Spectacular got the group to sit down to talk about making new music. In the midst of the conversation, Spectacular and Baby Blue mention the situation that happened with their father. Which has fans confused on whether or not if the group is all related. Well, I’ve done some research and found out that they are family members.
According to Heavy, Pretty Ricky was founded in 1997 by Spectacular’s father, Joseph “Blue” Smith. Smith served as the group’s manager, and assembled the original lineup of Spectacular, his brother Ala Diamond “Baby Blue” Smith, his cousin Corey “Slick ’em” Mathis, and family friend Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper. Today, they are best known for the 2005 platinum single “Grind With Me”, which peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart
