Newly signed Maybach Music Group artist Meek Mill has defended his decision to ride alongside Rick Ross' label and explained what his experience has been like thus far.
In Meek's eyes, Ross is one of the biggest brands in hip-hop right now.
"I'm doing my thing in my area, Wale doing his thing in his area, Rick Ross got the whole United States in a frenzy, why not team up," Meek explained in an interview. "It's like the Miami Heat, the Big Three. Once they get they things together -- they going to be unstoppable. At the end of the day we going to be unstoppable 'cause we coming to take a lot of rappers out the game man. Coming to spit straight fire...I ain't been to sleep five days. Me, Rozay, Wale, we been running around grinding. Then we just did like three videos in the last 24 hours. You grind hard your shine hard. At the end of the day we trying to win." (RapFix)
