Following chatter of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group possibly moving to Atlantic Records, the label news was confirmed earlier today (December 11) when the full video footage of Ross’ interview with Miami’s 99 Jamz hit the internet.
The MMG head honcho seemed quite confident in his announcement made on-air and even referred to the label change as being “the biggest move of the year.”
“I got another announcement as well. I’m excited for this year we got coming up man. 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,” Rick Ross revealed in a video posted on HipHop-n-More.com. “I’m signed as a solo artist to Def Jam. And Meek Mill, Wale, we all MMG at the end of the day.”
Ironically, Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy, who Ross has feuded with in the past, became the Senior VP of A&R at Atlantic Records back in August of this year. Ross also commented on Jeezy prior to making the Atlantic Records announcement, but his words weren’t as cheerful.
“It’s not personal, but if I see Young Jeezy again, will I try to choke him? I don’t know. That’s an option,” said Ross.
Prior to moving to Atlantic Records, Maybach Music Group was distributed via Warner Bros. Records.
