Throwback Thursday goes boy band!
We all know the legacy of the five boys from Indiana who went on to touch little boys, drown wives, use Crisco for face cream and a host of other fucked up shit that having Joe Jackson as a father would do for you. We also know the legacy of the Boston band that brought us "Thug Lovin," Sensitive-ass motherfuckers, "Poison," and Keith Sweatâ€™s â€œfriend,â€ Johnny. Soul For Real and â€œCandy Rainâ€ [watch it now] are the twisted offshoot of said legacies.
â€¦and if you donâ€™t like this shit, we canâ€™t be friends. Fuck that.
They should have named this group "Little Brother" long before Phonte, Pooh & 9th got a chance to.
The concept of making the videoâ€¦ very New Edition, and very great. Iâ€™m glad they didnâ€™t do some cheesy park bench pickup shit. As cute as that sort of thing is, they would have been short-changing themselves. The world needed to see that tree-switch-inspired routine!
These little niggas look like Antonio Davisâ€™ 4 illegitimate children. Pop was one bastard short of a ball team. After their singing career was through, they could have beat up on the Washington Generals in exhibition games.
Hmmm... One of their dads could be Jim Kelly (of "Enter the Dragon" fame). Man, you come straight out of a comic book.
Andre Harrell is looking like Andre Braugher on these kids. Thatâ€™s some Joe Jackson hawkin! Peep the remix video. Heavy Dâ€™s approach was loving and gentle! He let the kids be themselves! He--... Oh, youâ€™re right, Andre. Your way is better. You were a great executive.
What the fuck happened with Motown though? I ain't seen a nigga fuck up his shot that bad since Earl Manigault with that heroin.
Speaking of shots... The little one has this shot where he looks like Marlon Wayansâ€™ dump face doing his Michael Jackson. Made me remember that "Little Man" came out. I might gotta peep that if I get bored this weekend.
Please, while you're at it... watch the video for â€œIf You Want It.â€ Thatâ€™s some Jackson 5 impersonatin shit if I ever seen... and for some reason I like it.
