Responsible for many a cool sound spawned by Beyonce, Brandy, Usher and Kelly Rowland, Rico Love’s habit of building R&B music that transcends genre lines has brought him more success than most maybe aware of.
Now, in an interview with ‘The Feature Presentation‘, the ‘Sweet Dreams‘ producer has detailed his journey to the top, going a long way help aspiring creatives understand the lucrative business that is music publishing, soundtrack building and his enviable arrangement with Jimmy Iovine‘s ‘Interscope.’
The above, being one of the reasons we’ve billed this interview a ‘must see.’
For, his time with the outlet also saw him dish on the criticism Jay Z faces for continuing his business dealings with Barney’s, a company now under fire following claims they falsely accused two African-American shoppers of committing credit card fraud after they made large but legal in-store purchases.
Love’s thoughts on the matter? An interesting explanation as to why boycotting one company on the grounds of racism does little to combat the problem, and why the African-American community should turn its attention to the gun-selling pawnshops, alcohol pouring liquor stores and lack of inner-city education resources that stifles the progression of its youth.
