Where is Pleasure P From?
Pleasure P (whose real name is Marcus Ramone Cooper) was born on December 27, 1984, in Carver Ranches, West Park, Florida, where he grew up and went to school before making his way into the music industry. At the young age of 13, he formed the sensational singing group Pretty Ricky, which consisted of four members: Corey “Slick’em” Mathis, Diamond “Baby Blue” Smith, “Spectacular” Blue Smith, and, of course, Pleasure P. As they are brothers, meshing as a group was not a problem. But Pleasure P left the group in 2007 to start his solo career, and there has been no looking back for him.
Going on his own seemed to be great for his bank account, as Pleasure P’s net worth is estimated at around $2.0 million. Learn more about the rapper right here in our Pleasure P wiki.
