As R&B hitmakers go, few boast the credentials Rico Love has.

As his pal Usher continues to craft the masterpiece many hope his next album will be, Rico Love continues to soar towards critical acclaim today, doing so with his very own take on Rick Ross‘ ‘Devil is a Lie.’

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.
