Where there's demand, someone will supply.

No release date as of yet, but it will be distributed through his new deal with Warner Bros. (Rap Radar)
A few weeks ago, Ross inked Southern rapper Pill to his MMG roster.
"It's an honor being part of MMG," Pill said in a video. "Seeing what Ross did with his movement. I said, 'It's only right that I make that next step.' ... I remember listening to all of [Ross'] sh*t and being like, 'Man how the f*ck does he pick those beats?' I don't got that formula and it's only right that you put Pill with the formula and let my formula combine with it. Then we'll go on and take it to the sky. There's no time to waste." (Dre Films)
The deal came shortly after Ross aligned his label with rappers Wale and Meek Mill.
"[Signing Wale and Meek Mill], it just solidifies we're one of the fastest-growing labels in hip-hop...I mean, it is what it is," Ross said in response to the bidding war for his Maybach Music Group. "Right now we're on fire. We making, and it's not just a temporary thing, but we're making the best music, man. And we make all ranges of music. I think the industry's just understanding that. So it's not just about Rick Ross and Maybach Music, it's our brand, it's our movement, it's the type of sound that we done brought to the game -- We getting paper, what else can I say?" (The Source)
