We’ve heard of rappers getting into tussles with other rappers but it’s rare to hear stories about R&B singers swinging on each other until now.
In an interview on the “Tax Season” podcast, proven hitmaker-songwriter Rico Love detailed his working relationship with Usher. At one point during his conversation, Love revealed that Usher is also good with his hands.
Apparently, Usher two-pieced Bobby Brown back in 2002. It happened during Brown’s birthday party in Los Angeles. The “Don’t Be Cruel” singer was (allegedly) very intoxicated when he tried to insult Usher.
“Bobby was drunk, talking some s— to Ush,” recalls Love. “Ush thought he was joking. Bobby was dead ass. He started pushing Ush in the chest. And he said, ‘Yeah, lil n—-.’”
“He put his arm around Ush, he put him like in a headlock. Like, ‘Yeah n—-, don’t ever disrespect me, I’m the king. You my son,’” Love continues. “Ush kind of like pushed back, two-pieced Bobby Brown, quick. He did it so fast, everybody in the party thought they was play-fighting. Ush don’t f— around.”
Love also witnessed Trey Songz laying hands on an unruly club patron.
The interview wasn’t all about R&B fist fights. Rico Love talked about writing hits for Beyonce and why R&B music is still thriving.
