The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

DeGucc De-Coded

Perhaps you've seen this sign posted on neighborhood poles and such:


I'm pretty sure this isn't a "Barney's Coop" style boutique moving into PLG. In fact, I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that a local rapper has a record coming out, probably on his own label. But he's got moxie, I like the cut of his gib! Growing up in Kings County, they called him Pretty Ricky, and apparently, according to his self-authored Myspace page, he had an irresistably powerful effect on the ladies: More here...DeGucc

I WAS FLABBERGASTED...
these things seem to be fixtured to any inanimate object within the proximity...
funny how it has manage to blend in harmoniously within our locality...
it has certainly stirred up its just due of urban uber mystification through variable misidentification....
SUCH GAUDERY!!!!!!!
I AM UTTERLY IMPRESSED BY HIS KITSCHY MOJO!!!!!!!

via his facebook page: "Equipped with an inept ability to find trouble and an a undeniable affect on the opposite sex, “Pretty Ricky” kept his knuckles bruised regularly..."

I dont think you know what 'inept' means. also, the remainder of your "bio" is equally hilarious to read.

He is cute but his wife is hotter, I spotted them in brooklyn yesterday she looks like a barbie, good for you gucc. I actually saw his pic before he removed it from myspace. I did research on her, she is also an entertainer and designer. I heard she was ask to attend the wendy williams show, wonder if gucc is attending .

i saw him........
i really did...
i remember when he won Wendy Williams "UnderGround King of NY" a couple years ago....
hard to forget that ugly name....
He looks like Lil Wayne if Lil Wayne was cute and as tall as he looks on T.V.
Personally, Im not really a fan of Dreads but he makes me want to change my mind lol

HE NEVER TURNED DOWN AN OFFER FROM JAY-Z???
HE WAS JUST TOO SHOOK TO GIVE HOV HIS NUMBER AFTER HOV ASKED TWICE AT A CHANCE MEETING IN THE LOBBY OF SOME BUILDING IN MANHATTEN.....
I SHOULD KNOW, I WAS THERE...
HE SPIT A RHYME, HOV LIKE, ASKED FOR ANOTHER AND HE SPIT AGAIN...
HOV ASKED HIM FOR HIS NUMBER AND HE SAID SOMETHING LIKE "IMA HOLLA AT YOU WHEN IM READY"
HOV ASKED AGAIN AND GUCC STARTING WALKING OFF SHOOK LIKE HE JUST MET THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE!!!!!!
