Rick Ross Comments On Meek Mill's Incarceration

Rick Ross asks for support for Meek Mill, gives an update on "Dreams Worth More Than Money."

Days after it was revealed that Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill would be serving up to six months in jail, Rick Ross has finally spoken out on the matter. According to HotNewHipHop.com, the Miami rapper did so via a statement released over the weekend.

In his statement, Ross touched on support for his artists and says Meek Mill ran into “unfortunate legal issues.” In regards to Meek’s second studio album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, Ross says they’ll try and continue on schedule for the project.

“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported,” he said in the statement. “With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible. His album is coming. We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money’, and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”

Meek’s recent incarceration has even spawned a #FreeMeekMill campaign on social media with hundreds of fans petitioning for his release.

Last week, it was reported that the Philly lyricist was sentenced to three to six months in jail due to a possible probation violation, which may have stemmed from the rapper holding a gun in a picture posted on Instagram days ago.

    "cut his losses by signing French Montana who had one of the biggest flops on interscope in recent memory?" Yes Interscope did right because "Excuse My French" is at 175,000 with a platinum single "POP That" while "Animal Ambishon" is at 85,000 with no singles that charted in the Top 200.

      they're still paying off the features from French album, 50% of pop that went to the sample.
    • Anonymous
      French doesnt have to pay for features he is beloved by the entire industry and does a song for a song with everybody instead of paying money for features like these disgusting and hated rappers.

    Ross doesnt really care about Meek he just sees dollar signs now that his second biggest artist is on his Boosie/Pac shit and has cred in the streets after a year of L's and embarrassing the team with his child like behavior.
    • What?

      Your parents failed. Boosie and Pac were out committing crimes and wilding out getting charged with rape and murder, Meek is riding dirtbikes, Tweefing and donating money to house-fire victims in his City.

      "Meek is riding dirtbikes," riding uninsured, un plated off road vehicles recklessly through city streets with no helmet sounds like a crime to me.

    William is a big fan of fat tits, he used to call me & some of the homies over & paid us to walk around shirtless. Yes, I am a fat man, I have man boobs, William would often pick one of us at random & suck on our tits for hours, he loves tit play. It's one of the main reasons he let's his hang free. Embrace the movement y'all. #bigolfattits

      Ricky did what he had to do to survive and feed his growing appetite. I respect any man willing to fist a young black male criminal's anus in search of drugs.
