Rick Ross Signs Omarion to Maybach Music, Sets ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ Release Date

Rick Ross and Omarion

Like a true boss, Rick Ross held a press conference in New York on Wednesday to announce his newest ventures. The industry’s top executives including Diddy, Swizz Beatz, and Lyor Cohen were on hand to support the rapper.

Swizz Beatz was up first, announcing that he and Ross are working on a big and tall line for Reebok. “I got ya’ll, big guys, tall guys,” said Rozay.

Diddy showered praise on the Bawse. “He to me is definitely one of the hardest working men in this business. This is no accident. This is all designed, this is all planned out.”

The second Maybach Music compilation Self Made, Vol. 2 will drop June 26 featuring the single “Bag of Money.” “We pushing the envelope creatively,” said Wale, who will drop his third album during the first week of January.

Maybach Music’s next up to bat, Meek Mill, also revealed that his MMG debut Dreams & Nightmares will hit stores on August 28, while his first single will drop at the beginning of June. His mixtape Dreamchasers 2 will be released on May 7 featuring appearances from Drake, Rick Ross, Gunplay, and 2 Chainz.

Ross’ long-awaited fifth album God Forgives, I Don’t will arrive on Def Jam on July 31. “This is my best body of work yet,” said Rozay, who will drop a new single “extremely soon.”

The Teflon Don also announced that he has signed Omarion to Maybach Music Group. “Today I become a made man. Omarion aka Maybach O,” said the former B2K member, who is readying an EP. His first single “Let’s Talk” features Rozay and samples Notorious B.I.G. and Salt-n-Pepa.

Ross explained how he linked up with Omarion. “I ran into the homie, we had a few conversations and I flew him down to Miami and he played me a dozen records,” he said. “I was amazed by the music he put together. We had a few conversations and we made a situation happen. He’s a phenomenal entertainer. His dancing is incredible. He’s an actor, he’s a writer. I thought it would be a great move for both of us. I’ve been looking to enter the R&B arena, I felt he was the best artist to kick the doors open.”

    Looking foward to Meek’s & Ross albums ……..
    I could care less about Omarion

  8. um

    i’d rather rozay sign new talent (like maybe mateo) than people like omarion. for omarion to win in today’s time he has to reinvent himself rather than just present himself, bc we already know the music he makes (or used to).

    he’s competing with breezy, trey, usher, miguel, & the weeknd who all have relevant and established fan bases. i’ll give him a chance but if the public sees he’s biting from any of those 5 artists, THEY WILL CALL FOUL.

    other than that, MMG is winning and i love how cinematic their sound is.

    @um, What happened to Teedra Moses? He signed her like last year and it seems nothing came of it but a mixtape ;(

    @KimIsTheQueen, thats what i said reading this … i was R&B world? you already did with Moses.. how about finishing that!

    [Reply]

    KimIsTheQueen Reply:

    @Biscuits, Exactly! She’s truly talented! I think he’d be better off finishing that than trying to shove Omarion (who most people know about) in our faces as opposed to Teedra Moses (who very few know about). She could slay if managed properly. And not slay with that watered down music. I’m talking true artistry.

    Who cares. Nothing special about any of these guys. It’s all hype, the press conference, having Meek Mills and all them other cats there. It’s all hype, the good thing is, the public won’t buy into it. Have a press conference when you open a school for music, do something for the community, not when you sign Omarion…rotl.

    Its Alex Ross’ little detilas that get me. Look right in front of Iron Man, you’ll see a tiny Wasp, and the thing in the background looks to be Ant-Man’s mask while he’s in Giant Mode. Those little subtleties are what makes Alex a great artist. I highly recommend picking up the book Mythology: The Art of Alex Ross, if you haven’t done so already. Even if you’re not an aspiring artist, its still a great coffee table book.
