He's known for his hit songs, and working with musical icons like Beyonce and Usher.
Rico Love is definitely a star, a star who wants to give back to his hometown.
\"Milwaukee, I learned how to be tough here”, said Rico Love. “A lot of people don't know how tough of a city it is.”
Rico Love arrived at the BMO Harris Bradley Center Friday evening before Bucks played the Heat.
He met with the Bucks President and other management.
Right now, they're in talks about the musical artist becoming an ambassador for the organization.
\"It's about the team, gathering up the town, and just making Milwaukee a place to come to\", said Love.
\"If I'm sitting down on the court, I got Usher with me enjoying the game, Puffy, and I'm bringing my friends here”, said Love. “Same way they do. It will interest the City; make it cool again, fun again.\"
All parties involved seem to have the same game plan on moving forward.
\"We're at the very beginning, but it's going to happen really fast”, said Bucks President Peter Feigin. “This is going to be the place to be.\"
The Milwaukee Bucks are a much better team already compared to last year, and Rico Love says the team needs all the support.
\"Twenty or thirty years from now, I just want to be able to say, I did my part\", said Love.
