It has definitely been a wild ride these last few months with the cast (s) of About Him! Last summer this talented group of young men took the nation by storm with a story that brought to the forefront the pain and pleasure of young Black gay men coming of age. As you already know, one of them was Rico Pruitt, who starred as “Justin,” on the hit web series, and later in About Justin. We were already enamored with Brandon Karson and Gary Lavard on screen, but adding Rico into the mix was liking adding a little extra spice to make the show “extra nice!”

However, all things come to an end eventually; and from the looks of it Rico has decided to end his relationship with Signal 23 TV!

The popular web star took to Facebook and Instagram announcing not only his departure from About Justin, but the company as well. Check out his post below:

Signal 23 TV declined to comment. We are surprised to see Rico and Signal 23 TV are parting ways, but this is not unheard of. As you recall other original About Him stars, Brandon Karson (Damien) and Rahim Brazil (Kendall) parted ways with the company in December of last year. Rico is a good friend to our site and we definitely wish all parties involved the best of luck in their future endeavors.

You can catch an in depth interview with Rico Pruitt and his new project soon on HeyMikeyATL EXCLUSIVELY!

As you may recall Rico left Signal23TV nearly two years ago, accusing the network of mishandling his money and plaguing his life after starring in shows, “About Him” and its spin off, “About Justin.” He then went on to do independent projects that included a short porn stint and web series, “Too LIT” and “DM Diaries” with his now ex-boyfriend, ArQuez. We spoke to Rico about this turn of events, early last week, and he had the following to say:

“It’s the right time in my life to return and make amends. I realize I was not ready for the fame and opportunities my time with them [Signal23TV] afforded me…Now I’m out here running my own life and doing things my way. It’s time to get back to what I love, which is acting, and really make some boss moves. Stay tuned this is only the beginning of big things!”

We are happy to see Rico getting back to real acting and blazing his own path. His reconciliation with Signal23TV shows a lot of growth and both sides willingness to allow bygones to be bygones and perhaps recreate the days of old when the network was nothing short of a phenomenon. The “signal” has been lit–pun intended–and we are excited to see all the great things coming from this reunion. Check out the promo Signal23TV released welcoming our boy back! Good luck Rico!

Hot right? What do you guys think of Rico’s return to Signal23TV, sound off in the comments section below!

The promo video looks pretty amazing and leaves us wondering what we can expect from Elevated. We know Rahim is an awesome rapper and even more amazing performer. We got to see him up close and personal at Twisted star, Martel Star’s album release party for Emerald City. HE WENT IN!

The grapevine has told us that Rahim may have some collaborations with not only Martel Star, but November as well. Another circulating rumor is he is interested in working with another Web Star turned artist, Kvng David. We have to admit a collaboration between these two would be epic, but the song we heard at Martel’s aforementioned release party, Go Off, would be LIT. Maybe if we mix Eli Liberty in there somewhere too…hmmm… Honestly we would love to see him release a ballad somewhere on his new album. We first fell for Rahim’s music after hearing him sing on Facebook Live late 2016. (Rahim–hint, hint!)

Rahim Brazil proves yet again that he is living fire, and there really is nothing he cannot do. Check back here for updates on Elevated and a review. You can also catch our boy as he returns back in front of the camera in Twisted 2 this fall! Congrats on EVERYTHING Rahim, we expect nothing but GREATNESS from you!

What do you all think of Rahim’s newest venture? Sound off in the comments’ section below! Happy viewing and future listening!

Toni Bryce

We are currently singing in unison with the late and great Keri Hilson (y’all know she is one single away from UnSung) “All eyes on me when I walk in, no question that that this girl’s a 10, don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful!” Ms. Brynce believe us when we tell you we don’t hate you! Toni has been making some serious moves in the last year we have known and becoming more and more gorgeous by the day. Whether she’s getting “Twisted” on set with Rahim Brazil and company, or “kiki-ing” on Girls, her “Pretty Girl Rock” is real, mesmerizing, and her curves would look awesome in a wet suit. Cocktails with Toni anyone? YES PLEASE!

Brandon Karson

Summer is hot and Brandon Karson is FINE! Yes, the man that showed the world it’s all “About Him” still has it and we want it! Brandon consistently serves face, fashion, and verbal ferocity, but as of late he’s been a one man show in making light skinned sexy again. We have to say it is working and we LIVE for his shirtless Instagram Stories. Is there any way we can make them last longer than 24 hours though. IG we need you on that ASAP!
