Who is Git Fresh?

Jermaine Dupri’s newest arsenal of talent comes in the form of four ethnically diverse singers with a penchant for lovely ladies, long hair, and looking fresh. Git Fresh—Penny, 21; Rude Boi, 23; Mike Ezay, 23; and Pretti Sly, 24—may look like a team of rappers with their tattooed frames and glittering adornments, but the sounds they emit are more soulful croons than rowdy raps.

Seated at a conference table among a slew of media at Island Def Jam, the four R&B dudes presented a sampling of tunes off of their self-titled debut, hitting store shelves on October 7th. Their most notable track, “Booty Music,” was the kicker that put them on the map in their hometown of South Florida. The scintillating ode has earned the team spins at radio nationwide and a video, which they shot in the Dominican Republic last week.

At Jermaine Dupri’s urging, Git Fresh belted out a few bars a cappella-style from “Wet,” a record off their debut, to prove their talent isn’t fostered at the hands of audio equipment. Despite a failed attempt to reach the pinnacle of R&B success while signed to Jive Records, the So So Def/Island Def Jam signees have prevailed by leaning on one another.

“We’ve been grinding together for so long and have gone through hard times,” Pretti Sly explains. “It’s just brought us together.”
