Meek Mill Splits With Roc Nation
Meek Mill is parting ways with Roc Nation.
The rapper is no longer being managed by JAY-Z’s management company after a decade. Meek has been removed from the company’s website and their social media pages. The news was first reported by Billboard.
Meek and Roc Nation’s relationship dates back to 2012 when he signed with the Roc. In 2019, he launched a joint venture between his Dream Chasers imprint and Roc Nation.
“Of course I had offers to do a lot of business with other people, but the relationship we’ve built from [Roc Nation] believing in me through my whole career, through my ups and downs and the morals they showed to me and my team when it wasn’t in their best interest to have showed it — I feel comfortable going through this right here at home,” Meek said at the time.
Upon Meek’s release from prison in 2018, he and JAY-Z also teamed up to launch the REFORM Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to probation, parole, and sentencing reform in the U.S.
Last year, Meek blasted his label, Atlantic Records, saying that they owed him money and didn’t promote his most recent album Expensive Pain. He also claimed that the label stopped Roddy Ricch from signing with him.
“So look I made Atlantic records 100’s of millions and let them rape me out out Roddy a artist they came to me about in jail,” he tweeted.
So look I made Atlantic records 100’s of millions and let them rape me out out Roddy a artist they came to me about in jail … they still saying I can’t drop music until 9 months after my last album got blackballed just wrapped buildings and Nina art with talent …
