We gave it an C-

The four young Miami siblings who make up Pretty Ricky seem constitutionally incapable of thinking about anything but sex. Their second album, Late Night Special, pairs steamy slow-jam hooks with a ceaseless stream of crass, formulaic rhymes; requests like ”Can I put a little peer pressure on you?/’Cause I know you want it” are as close as these guys get to romantic banter. Hearing one of their explicit hits — like this CD’s ”On the Hotline” — is a degrading experience, but listening to their juvenile boasts for 47 straight minutes is flat-out boring.
