With Meek Mill’s Expensive Pain album set to arrive on Friday (October 1) via Maybach Music Group/Atlantic Records, many of the Philly native’s Hip Hop compatriots have shown him love when promoting the project.
One post, in particular, came from Maybach Music Group honcho Rick Ross on the heels of Akademiks stirring the pot claiming there was beef rumbling inside the MMG camp when Rozay was allegedly barred from attending Meek’s birthday bash in Miami earlier this year.
“There’s an artist who’s signed to another artist,” Akademiks cryptically stated in May. “People saw when the artist who’s signed to the other artist was having a party, the artist they’re signed too allegedly tried to enter the party and go about certain places and I heard there was a big issue.
“One of your favorite artists who’s claimin’ that they lit, they a boss, they do whatever — they’re signed to another n-gga. And allegedly, they beefin’ with the other n-gga because they’re trying to get off the label. That’s what I heard.
“I don’t even want to say names because I’m in disbelief. I hear they want off the label. This has been an ongoing conversation. The n-gga that they signed to showed up to their party and they were not happy. When that person showed up, there was issues.”
Rick Ross recently went on a press tour in support of his new book and didn’t hint at any sort of beef brewing while all was cool on the MMG front. The Biggest Boss has always been about doing what’s best for his artists from a business perspective, and that isn’t going to change now.
Meek Mill’s LP serves as his first since 2018’s CHAMPIONSHIPS and features lead singles “Blue Notes 2” featuring Lil Uzi Vert and “Sharing Locations” alongside Lil Baby and Lil Durk, which sits at No. 61 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In addition to Expensive Pain, It’s a busy week for MMG as Wale will be unleashing a collaboration with J. Cole on Thursday (September 30) which will land on his Folarin 2 project.
