This photo of rapper Legacy, formerly part of the New Boyz, offered enough beefcake to warrant further investigation. But I proceeded with caution.
Theire single "You're a Jerk," released in the summer of 2009, popularized the "jerkin'" style of dance and reached #24 on U.S. charts (#4 on rap charts).
They released two albums, Skinny Jeans and a Mic (2009) and Too Cool to Care (2011) before breaking up to pursue solo careers.
Their lyrics are extremely heterosexist -- every other word is "girl! girl! girl!" Or, more likely "hoe!" They're extremely sexist, too,
Legacy: I was wonderin' if you could be my first date here
Ben J: Excuse my friend, he's kinda new to meeting girls cause he's used to men.
Legacy: Used to men!
Ben J: Girl, this dude is stupid huh?
Legacy: Yo, I ain't gay.
Ben J: Man, why don't you tell the truth for once?
Legacy: She want me.
Ben J: You don't even got a mustache yet.
Even that seems very mild.
1. Legacy is fond of shirtless instagram pics, some considerably more explicit than the top photo.
2. Ben J apparently came out in a tweet:
I am admitting to being gay, can't be fake with y'all no more. Take it or leave it. Thanks for all the support though!!
