Scream is most known for working with artists from the Atlanta area.
"I'm a native of the A-Town and have been creating mixtapes for close to a decade now. Some of the names that I have put on in the area include Shawty Lo, Rocko, Crime Mob, Yung Ralph, J Money, Soulja Boy and some others. Working with these artists has been a pleasure, and the fact that we have dropped street classics that people still bump is even more of a thrill." (MTV Newsroom)
In June, recently freed rapper DMX revealed Ross' interest in signing him to Maybach Music.
"Rick Ross' peoples wrote me a letter while I was in here," he revealed in an interview. "Yeah like 'Yo we got a home for you. We'll pick you up in a limo. Just come to Miami. Just come, we got you.' ... I'm thinking about it. It was a good feeling. I respect him as an artist, and I would like to work with him. But he got the whole Illuminati thing going on. I got fans who write me like 'I'm glad you're not a part of that.' And I don't know what it's really about entirely. So it might be like a good thing." (VIBE)
Maybach Music is currently the home to Wale, Meek Mill, Gunplay, Pill, Teedra Moses and more.
