Love got his start as a stand-up comedian and made his acting debut Off-Broadway at the age of nineteen. His motion picture debut, Bebe's Kids had him providing the voice of late comedian Robin Harris. He then had a role in The Meteor Man starring Robert Townsend.

Follow-up films have included Elf, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, Money Talks, Wonderland, The Fighting Temptations, and Idlewild.
