(AllHipHop News) In the second installment of Rico Love’s exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, the producer/rapper discussed his plans for 2014.
New York City’s own 50 Cent reached out to the hit maker to work on a hook for an upcoming song. Rico touched on the new record and how 50’s former rival Fat Joe Rico the blessing to work with the G-Unit General.
“I just did a record with 50 he sent a me a record to do a hook for,” Rico Love told AllHipHop.com. “And obviously I called Fat Joe and got his blessing because Joe is my real friend, my brother, my family. Before I did anything I called him and I think 50 would even respect that. And he’s [Fat Joe] is like ‘nah its love there aint no problem with 50, do your thing.’ That’s just how I get down.”
Rico Love described his new record as being a “party record” that will help people celebrate life and have a good time.
“It’s party record, it’s about celebrating life and having a good time,” Rico Love explained. “50 actually wrote the hook to it and sent it to me. I put my spin on it, it was really dope.”
The origin of the disputed stemmed from Stoute’s sensational claims that 50 Cent was no longer relevant to Hip-Hop in recent interviews with New York radio stations, because of his lack of hit records being aired.
