No longer content with crafting hits for artists such as Monica Brown and Usher, music producer Rico Love is going the route of other music producers-turned-artists. Love’s first attempt at recording a solo album was in 2007. Crooner Usher Raymond, who signed the 31-year-old songwriter to his US Records, encouraged Love to stick to what he knows best: songwriting and producing. But Love didn’t listen.
Today, Love released the new music video for his hit single “He Got Money” featuring Ciara‘s baby daddy, Future on auto-tunes. Watch the video after the break.

Usher Raymond‘s ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, is blaming their divorce on a secret trip she took to Brazil for a lipo procedure back in 2009. Tameka almost died on the operating table after she went into cardiac arrest.
In an interview to promote her reality TV series, Hollywood Exes: Atlanta, Tameka said, “I did dumb stuff. I mean, I went to Brazil and tried to get lipo and almost died. I think that embarrassed him to like, “Oh no. I’m packing. She’s a nut.”
Of course, we know the truth. Usher’s bags were packed long before that.
