The Time B2K Did a Group Lean in Tacky Alphets: Throwback Thursday

The fact that the early 2000s can now be considered “throwback” means we’re all old. Dambit. And remember the group Immature? Well, not them. I’m talmbout their heirs apparent: B2K. Omarion, J-Boog, Raz-B and Lil Fizz. Sounding like a Matrix character, a fake ass rapper, a flavor that was trying too hard to sound cool and some soda I wouldn’t want. Teenager us loved them too.

But check out this picture of them:

B2K Group Lean 2

LMAO! What is happening here? Why are the boys in the front doing the Smooth Criminal lean? Raz-B and Omarion holding hands to stay up. See? Everyone can’t be the THRILLERMAKER and get shoes patented so the lean could be possible. EVERYBODY AIN’T ABLE! >_>

I just wonder why they thought this was the move. “Yo fellas. We should lean during the photoshoot.” “Lean on what?” “Nothing.” “YESSS!”

Bless their hearts. And can we talk about these clothes? Why do they look like their seamstress quit halfway through because she realized this was gonna look like post-apocalyptic uniforms? Why is Raz-B wearing .075 of a vest? What happened to the bottom of the left side of this orange vinyl fabric he’s rocking?

And WHY are the chip clips having to hold his shirt together? However, i give him props for the foresight. He knew cut-outs were a trend we’d all appreciate eventually. See: Instagram fashion designers. Lemme find out that he was really ahead of his time.

Andre Leon Talley said “That’s a lot of fashion.” This is not enough fashion.

Meanwhile, look like Lil Fizz in the back. I didn’t even notice him at first. He was the Michelle of B2K. His shirt is so big that they must have used some of the fabric they were supposed to use for Raz-B’s vest. The person who looks the LEAST of a fool is J-Boog. These alphets, doe.

Bless this mess.

P.S. if you’re new here, yes I said ALPHETS instead of OUTFITS on purpose. Check the Awesomely Luvvie glossary.

    At least that one on the right came prepared with his patented “I Might Have to Hold Hands” glovelet.

    And this throwback to the 2000s? I already HAD A JOB and was PAYING TAXES by then. JeezLouise.

  • tandra November 6, 2014, 9:29 am

    .75 of a vest FLOORED me. I didn’t even notice a part of his vest was missing I was more so shocked that he’s rocking a cut out of his belly button.

  • Asia E. November 6, 2014, 9:36 am

    I can not BREAVE at this post LOL LOL @ .075. *crying real tears* LOL

  • Kat November 6, 2014, 9:37 am

    HA!! B2K pays homage to Gordon Gartrell. #JesusBeASeamstress

    • RaeJ November 6, 2014, 10:19 am

      That will forever be my favorite episode! Theo was like “ask me the question again!!!!”

    • Angela November 7, 2014, 3:27 pm

      HAHAHAHA I was thinking the same thing! “My arms are the same length, why aren’t my sleeeeeeves?!”

    • prettydarkskinnedgirl November 8, 2014, 1:41 am

      Thank you for that Kat! I was thinking the SAME thing! Leave us not forget the fashion forwardness brought to us by the Huxtables while these chirren weren’t even gleams in their parents’ eyes!

    • Theo Huxtable November 11, 2014, 1:07 pm

      Stop it, please! LMAO

    • Andrea April 7, 2016, 2:47 pm

    It looks like a Project Runway challenge…”Create a cohesive look for a boy band with 70 yards of whatever two materials you pick (while blindfolded) and some double-sided tape. You have 45 minutes for this challenge.”

    • The Chef In Pearls November 6, 2014, 9:45 am

      Tears….Project Runway Challenge. ..hilarious

    • LJ November 6, 2014, 12:32 pm

      “Make it work!”

  • Dupe November 6, 2014, 9:38 am

    Ma’am, RazBerry was definitely the Michelle of B2K! Don’t let former Lil Fizz fans come for you!

    • Luvvie November 6, 2014, 9:44 am

      I meant J-Boog, actually. Whoops. Whichever one is in the back w/ them 4 ponytails.

      • Flyy November 6, 2014, 10:16 am

        Lil Fizz is correct.
        From L to R they are: RazB, Lil Fizz, J Boog & Omarion

        …*hangs head in shame8

      • jcanwisegrrl November 6, 2014, 10:23 am

        No ma’am. Liz Fizz (with the pigtails) was the ‘rapper,’ so he had a second or two in the spotlight every once in a blue moon. J-Boog (the one beside him) was the ‘unsung.’ I don’t recall him doin nuthin but being there lookin cute. I guess he added to the unison, cuz I sho never heard no harmony from B2K!

        • GJ November 6, 2014, 10:49 am

          Lol besides his little part on the girlfriend remix, Boog sung the second verse on Feel This Way from their first album.

        • jcanwisegrrl November 6, 2014, 12:01 pm

          The remix doe? Not eem the original? One one random 2nd verse? Poor ting! At least Michelle got to do the bridge of all the DC songs. And she’s still doing her thing.

  • Sango87 November 6, 2014, 9:43 am

    Oh, how I miss you on FB #AL!!! I had to get off their and get my life together. But, every now and then I will check your blog so I could get a good laugh. Thank God I could laugh as loud as I like in the office!!!!

  • Deja November 6, 2014, 9:50 am

    Me: what does b2k mean anyway?

    Wiki: They named their group B2K (Boys of the New Millennium) to represent the fact that they got together in the beginning of a new millennium.

    you just got served.

    • jimmy November 7, 2014, 12:17 pm

      Damn I wish you hadn’t shared that dookie nugget of information. I had no idea what B2K stood for. Eww now I’m mad that I know. If only I could unlearn that. Darn your thirst for knowledge Deja.

  • Flyy November 6, 2014, 10:01 am

    The rest of RazBerry’s vest was clearly invested in forehead consuming oversized du-rag he rocking… priorities, ma’am… priorities.

  • Amanda Renae November 6, 2014, 10:22 am

    Pretty Tony from Cell Block C was reading up on fashion design in the prison library. Needed some models.

    • howlingbanshee November 8, 2014, 6:17 pm

      Exactly. I was laughing at the photo until I noticed it looked like they were wearing tattered prison uniforms.
      Then I got really sad.

  • Lola757 November 6, 2014, 10:23 am

    Shirt held together with chip clips…#dead

  • Michelle November 6, 2014, 10:51 am

    **ooooooouch** (holding my side while dying)

  • emv1102 November 6, 2014, 11:33 am

    Whew, this pic got out? The lean, tho. Actually, I’ll take the lean over those outfits. Raz-B with his navel all out, got the shirt clipped tight as I don’t know what. I want to know who the photographer was with this. Couldn’t-nuh been a professional, couldn’t-nuh. This person took that pic with one of those little 110 cameras I used to buy from the dollar store and said “guys use this.” Can’t even….

  • Jen November 6, 2014, 11:50 am

    They look like they were dressed by Denise Huxtable. Look like that shirt she TRIED to make for Theo………po thangs……

    • Gordon Gartrell November 11, 2014, 1:11 pm

      Y’all gon’ stop throwin’ shade at Denise.

  • jme November 6, 2014, 11:54 am



    Why today? Why this picture???

    I am so done!

  • bird November 6, 2014, 12:25 pm

    ……they look like they commissioned denise huxtable for matching gordon gartrell’s. This photo makes me uncomfortable.

    • KayMac November 6, 2014, 2:21 pm

      GORDON GARTRELL?!?!?! Lawd hol’ my mule!!!!! LMAOOOOOOO!!!!

  • Alicia November 6, 2014, 12:39 pm

    I cannot stop laughing at my desk. Hilarious!

  • Vonetta November 6, 2014, 1:38 pm

    Their lean looks like a really bad trust exercise. iCaint

  • KayMac November 6, 2014, 2:20 pm

    Ya know…I often wonder if entertainers look back at their old alphets and wonder, “What in the ENTIRE HELL was I thinking?!” (not from the 60s or 70s, though because they were probably high as all the fucks)…Omarion probably looked at this picture and got mad because he ain’t get paid enough for this boolsheet…

    • SoulfliHoneyBea October 16, 2015, 1:37 pm

      This comment…almost a year later had me falling to pieces at work while the engineers surrounding me looked more confused than usual….

  • Jessica November 6, 2014, 2:38 pm

    Never, ever will I read this blog again while at work!!! I am in here crying! I saw the pic and knew jokes were coming, but kept scrolling anyway!

  • Connie November 6, 2014, 3:05 pm

    Poor boys dressed like Shredded Orange is the New Black. smh.

    I think Raz-B lost a duel.

    Inigo Montoya came for him or some shyt like that.

    “I am Inigo Montoya. You served my father. prepare to die” **slice**

    Lord have mercy. And to remember that my friends and I used to fuss about who was the best looking…

  • Marcelo N November 8, 2014, 7:07 pm

    Since I am from “across the Globe”, I don’t get many of the (surely hilarious) comments and comparisons…
    HOWEVER, what’s with that boy’s belly button? Is it just me or doesn’t it look a bit too high up his torso? Last time I checked (which was just now: stood up, walked to the window, took off shirt, looked at reflection on the glass, scratched head), navel was not that way up. Like, within 3 inches going down boy got nipples>>sternum>>belly-button.
    Am I abdominally challenged and I never knew?

    With a heavy heart and an ominous feeling of “deformity in anticipation”,
    Yours Truly

  • Silk! November 10, 2014, 2:07 pm

    Oh Marcelo, you have me crying. I KNEW something was wrong with that navel. Talk about high-wasted (typo on purpose).

  • Theo's Shirt November 11, 2014, 1:15 pm

    Useless trivia: Did you know that Gordon Gartrell is a real person? He was actually a writer/producer for The Cosby Show.

  • Laurie January 8, 2015, 10:55 pm

    Orange is the new…torn yoga garb.

  • Deb January 10, 2015, 12:51 pm

    ROTFLMBO!!!! “Bless they heart!” What the ‘ol folks would tell you when your stuff was a mess but they were trying to be nice…SMH

  • J April 1, 2015, 6:28 am

    This was too ahead of their time, somebody could have shown this to Kanye for him to get that his fashion sense is too ahead of our time just as it was back in 2000s.

  • Ty April 7, 2016, 2:52 pm


    In important news, J-Boog is still finer than all of them combined

    • Gdo April 7, 2016, 5:28 pm

      Thank God J-Boog was my favorite. Not like my BSB fave, Nick Carter is not aging well at all.

  • Kemse April 8, 2016, 7:17 am

    Oh. My. Ghurd.

    I was a stan and never saw this photo. Adding this to the collection of reasons I shake my head at this phase nowadays. That group was a mess and I don’t wanna claim them but truths is truths.
