According to the statement from the artist’s team, he was quickly placed in a nearby Miami hospital after the shooting and is now “fighting for his life.” A lot of his fans took to Twitter to pray on Blue Baby and his recovery. A user tweeted, “Omg I hope Baby Blue from Pretty Ricky is ok.” Another one tweeted, “Prayers Up For Baby Blue… Dude Just Got Shot Up While With His Friend In Miami Smh.”
Blue Baby’s brother Pretty Ricky- who is also the co-founder of Spectacular- has not made any comments regarding the incident. The artist and Spectacular created Pretty Ricky as well as Slick’s Em and Pleasure P in 1997.
The group made their first platinum-selling success back in 2004 with their debuted hit single “Grind With Me,” which was also incorporated on their 2005 debut album, Bluestars.
Pretty Ricky was set to go on a major tour with other notable rappers and singers such as, Omarion, Soulja Boy, Ashanti, Bow Wow and many more last year for the “2020 Millennium Tour.” Unluckily, the anticipated star-packed tour did not go as long as it was hoping to due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
