I'm Just Saying . . .

Does Chris Stokes give anybody else those Chester the Molester vibes? Yikes, I'm waiting for one of the former members from B2K to do an interview with Us Weekly and talk about him making them fuck each other while he masturbated. Or for his possible appearance on Dateline's "To Catch A Predator" series. You know, which ever comes first.

Chris is taking a break from exchanging instant messages with undercover police officers from the Perverted Justice website. He is busy managing a new singing group called 2 Much, which includes his son. Here is some press release info:

Few teens who one day fantasize about forming a hip-hop group, cutting a record and hitting the road, see that dream become a reality a year later, but that is exactly what has happened for Milo Stokes.

With the help of his cousin, stage and film star Omarion, and his dad, manager/director Chris Stokes, Milo and his two talented singer/dancer friends Marcel Wildy and Chris Cheeks, went from dancing and rhyming in each others' living rooms to cutting songs in a state of the art studio. The group was discovered by Omarion, who signed 2 Much to his O Records label, and is currently recording under the leadership of Chris Stokes, the man behind B2K and writer/director of "You Got Served."

While hanging with Omarion and B2K touring the states just a couple years ago, Milo, Wildy and Cheeks were eager to start their own group, one that would, like B2K, fuse hot dance moves with smooth R&B and hip-hop. During a New York show on the tour that dream took a giant leap toward reality when Chris Stokes spotted a young kid in the crowd with strong pipes and killer moves. After a brief audition backstage for Omarion the Bridgeport, Connecticut-native Myles Cleveland, became the missing link to the group Milo and the gang had dreamt about. And just like that, 2 Much was born.

"I saw something special that I've never seen in a young boys group before," says producer/manager Chris Stokes. "They're like the new Jackson Five." Remembering when his son, Milo (the "crooner of the group"), expressed interest in following in cousin Omarion’s footsteps, Chris says with a laugh, "I hate it--but he loves the business so whatever my son wants, I want to back him up."

Not long after that fateful tour stop, the L.A.-based teen quartet showcased for Music World Entertainment chief executive Matthew Knowles and Senior Vice President of A&R Max Gousse, who immediately signed a deal with the group for its debut released via O Records/ T.U.G./Music World Music. Ever since, 2 Much has been recording daily and performing to packed houses on the weekends on a national mall tour. While each member boasts sharp dance skills, vocally the group is split down the middle: Cleveland and Cheeks handle the rhymes, and Milo and Marcel bring the smooth vocals: Says Milo: "We have real ghetto, hood stuff, but Marcel knows how to get to the ladies." (Nigga please - - Fresh)

Yup, sounds like Another Bad Creation all over again. Papa Mathew is trying to land a job in the A&R department at Kitchen Ass Records. First Aqualeo and now these little McNiggas. Dude isn't slick.
