Rico Pruitt Career Is Now “L.I.T” (Porn Stars Are The New Actors?)

/the following is parental advisory and nsfw.
viewer discretion is strongly advised.

oh,
so it wasn’t his performance in that “bba” debut?
so rico pruitt is heading towards sweeping awards season.
he is multi faceted in these forests.
he acts and does porn.
well rico pruitt is on a new series titled “l.i.t”.
he plays a character that moves to atl and gets into the fast life of stripping.
this is the trailer

i hope he signed a contract for this production.
i don’t want to hear whining about this one in the future.

it also stars zahfar and tyrell moore (more of him please?).
so judging from the trailer,
rico is in a box.
he can act,
ill give him that,
but i only saw “fuck”.
that seems to be the theme with most gay series.
in shows like “insecure” on hbo,
there are graphic sex scenes,
yes,
but it doesn’t dominate the story.
the sex scenes tie into the story and often come as a surprise.
even with “sex and the city”,
it wasn’t just all about sex.
the trailer for “l.i.t” came off like a porno with a script.
it had porn stars casted to give rico the pipe.
mustang and jovantae brownlee look like their roles are “fucking him”.
it all looked like pure shock value.
i figured that when “do you need dick in your life?” started blaring out my speakers.
even though the story looks interesting,
they showed what the sex scenes would be like and it left nothing to the imagination.
i’ll check it out when it makes its debut this spring.

Will you?

lowkey: they spelt “official” wrong at the end of the trailer in the instagram.
they need to correct it so potential fans know whey they’re going.
i was wondering why i kept getting “page not found”.

    I honestly dont understand the big distinction between hard core porn and these softcore web series. Pruitt has decided to make his living off of the fact that men like to masturbate to him and is smart enough to know that his 15 minutes will be over soon. Why not make as much as you can as fast as you can? May hay while the sun shines! I respect his hustle and hope that he isn’t spending more than he’s earning. In a few years, he’ll just be an over-the-hill, somewhat too short used to be with unfortunately permanent tatoos.

      I’m sorry, but a smart hustler doesn’t aim for short term money, because unless he’s saving every penny and/or investing his money It’s going to run out pretty soon. I doubt these web series are paying that much money and if he goes back and does more hardcore porn I doubt he;s going to get as much money as he did before because the novelty as worn off..He should be aiming for longevity in a legitimate acting career, not pandering to thirsty ass gay men who just want to nut and don’t give a fuck about him.

      Your last sentence says it all. You’re clearly counting down the days until the next hot young thing comes along, and I’m sure you’ll encourage him to follow the same dead end path as Rico all so you can get a nut

        If you were to poll all the Black men in the country “aiming for longevity in a legitimate acting career”, I have no doubt that Rico Pruitt will out earn all but about 100 of them this year and will be working beside them at In and Out Burger next year. And, several of the 100 who will out earn him are doing the same things he is doing, just not filming it. Your objection to his career choices is about your own imposition of your own expectations for how another leads his life not about paying his rent. Such prissy moral indignation is expensive. Perhaps Rico Pruitt will someday be able to afford some.

      ^he was complaining he got the shaft from the director of the first series.
      in the commentary,
      they claimed he allegedly went and leased a car instead of finding a place to live first and maybe investing a cheaper used car.
      doesn’t sound like he is making smart choices,
      but maybe his role in life is for everyone to catch a nut until the next big porn star strolls on the scene.

      im so mad that after they introduce the names,
      it says “SEX” and the song goes:

      “if you need some dick…”

      maybe they should market this as a porn series?
      than some acting web series.
      clearly it’s for all of us to catch a couple nuts too.

    I’m going to need Logo to go ahead and bring back Noah’s Arc, or back a new urban gay series because these web series aren’t doing it for me. As I’ve said before I have a hard time getting into them because of either the lack luster set design or the poor acting and script. I got into a white gay web series called ” Hunting Season” years ago based on the story and locations.

    These ATL produced gay webseries and reality shows are so one dimensional. Same script, different cast or Visa versa. I give them credit for making content but for having this reputation as the Black Gay Mecca, you would think they would try to create more variety. Also, have they not heard of a sizzle reel? This trailer should be 90 seconds tops, they pretty much gave the show away.

    Honestly Jamari, you’re such a talented writer, I think you could create a very awesome screenplay for a webseries. Hell a show on your life ,based on some of the post you have made in the foxhole would be such a breath of fresh air. I would watch and support 100%.Through in some drama,humour, flashbacks, fantasies(with potential wolves) great acting and narratives, I could see it up there with Insecure and Atlanta. I hope you meet a really talented production company to make it happen.

    Btw has anyone seen this show on Netflix called Chewing Gum? Freaking Hilarious!! There needs to be a gay version of this lol!

      Julian Vic I so agree with your idea Icould see a series based off your life with a little fictional thrown in there.

      Oh and I checked out Chewing Gum a few weeks and fell in love with it , super funny show.

    Maybe you can feature some of the web series that are actually good and not oversexed on your site instead of giving blog space to those that we complain are stereotypical and lame. Filmmakers who work with actual working actors that actually have a story and professional cinematography. How come only the “bad” web series get media attention, while the good ones are constantly overlooked? It’s like the black lgbt audience says it wants better shows, but doesn’t feature the good ones, only the bad ones on blogs. A black lgbt web series called ‘Red Skin’ and another called ‘Miles + Cal’ focus on the story and neither has any sex scenes. Also, “Love At First Sight” is good as well.

    Oh Lord. When you said this was a trailer and I saw that it was 5 minutes long…SMH. Rico has sex appeal for his time being I suppose, got to give him temp credit. Now I’m curious to know what happened with these directors and stuff of these shows and the cast. The cast of Pharm and Raising Eli…sigh

    Lets not act like sex doesnt sell people. Hell Halle berry won an award for playing a prostitute/hooker with a dirty looking jackal. We are so quick to judge and cast our doubts on him not realizing that, we all had to crawl through the gutter our way to the top (and some of us are still crawling). At least he is getting his face out there, At least we know that he has identified a certain niche (sexualized pretty boy) that he can master and isnt just playing a soft talking thug one min and in drag the next. Dick pics and nudes havent stopped attentionistas like Heat, Flashman wade, Milan, ect from appearing in the eyes of hollywood so it definately wont stop Rico. Dont forget there is a double standard in the world when it comes to women nudes and Men nudes. This porn stuff may actually help him navigate hollywoods infamous casting couches with the white men, since the black man is “an exotic species”.

      Well, if you wanna say that then let me ask you this: what is making the sex/adult entertainment industry tons of money? Videos? Pictures? Music? What? The above names you mentioned are all internet porn stars, sans Jonathan “Heat” Martinez since he’s a male exotic dancer appearing on “Black Magic” and Flashman Wade haven’t really released anything that was worth remembering him by so maybe google research his work in the adult entertainment industry will refresh our memories. Not trying to start an argument, but I feel like there’s more to than just “sex sells” phallacy.

    I’m so glad everyone said what i was thinking…and hinestly i loved about him when it was a book on bgc but it seemed the movie webseries version was just porn with a script. If we continue to portray ourselves as sex crazed zombies with mediocrity than the world will embrace us as such however there’s more to black gay men than sex….good work can stimulate your mind as well as your eyes…i wont be checking this series out i’ve seen a million like it it

    even the webseries Triangle lost my interest after awhile just became too much
