Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group Merges With Atlantic Records
Rick Ross is taking his Maybach Music Group empire to greener pastures, according to Billboard. The Bawse man recently announced that he's moving his label from Warner Bros. to Atlantic Records in what he describes as "the biggest move of the year."
"I'm excited for this year we got coming up, man," he told Miami's 99 Jamz. "This is really huge. MMG we just merged with Atlantic Records. It's the biggest move of the year. We gonna leave it right there. I'm signed as a solo artist to Def Jam. And Meek Mill, Wale, we all MMG at the end of the day."
This is exciting news for the label after having an extremely successful year that saw major album releases from Wale, Mill and Rozay, himself. Not only that, Ross and Wale both garnered Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album ('God Forgives, I Don't') and Best Rap Song ('Lotus Flower Bomb'), respectively.
However, there might be a conflict of interest with the merger since Ross' nemesis Young Jeezy is the Senior VP of A&R at Atlantic and is also the new home of his label CTE Records. But the '9 Piece' rapper insists that Warner and Atlantic have a "beautiful relationship." Something tells us that Ross is not going to let a petty beef stop the money train. R-Ruh!
On Jan. 1, 2013, Ross also plans to announce the title of his sixth album, which is slated to drop in the summer of that year.
