Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill has shared his reaction to boss Rick Ross inking R&B singer Omarion to their growing empire, admitting he is fully behind the unexpected power move.
Along with Omarion, Meek also explained his close bond with Ricky Rozay.
"I look at Ross like my old head. My dad died when I was young. I never really had an older person in my life that really looked out for me. [Ross] helped change my life--took my music to another level, so it took my money and my family to another level." Just last week, Maybach Music welcomed Omarion into the family. "That's the decision Ross made and we gon' rock with it 100 percent," said Meek, who has recorded a song with the former B2K member. (Rap-Up)
Last week, Omarion talked about joining a powerful record label like MMG.
"Maybach O. That's the new movement, man. I'm so excited. I can't even express, you know, how excited I am, you know what I mean? And just how this whole thing came along, man, it's just...It's been a blessing. There's a difference between your time and when you want to do things and God's time, you know what I mean? And this right here man, it's been God's time. ... And for him to just say, "Yo, I believe in you man." I think that... You know, he played me some music and really, it's kind of where I always wanted to go. And that's kind of been a challenge for me too, being a young entertainer is it's like I've been a part of so much, you know what I mean? Like, I've been a part of so much." (XXL Mag)
The singer also hopped on his Twitter page last week to confirm the hype was real.
"#MaybachO," he tweeted May 2nd.
"Trending worldwide #MMG #MaybachO #Omarion #TeamOmarion we welcome all the hate & the love..it's Christ like."
"#mmaaaaaayyyyybbbbaacccchhhh music! http://instagr.am/p/KIyrUtFOWa/"
"Nothing with out my fans that's been holding me down!! I love ya." (Omarion's Twitter)
In April, speculation developed suggesting O officially joined Ricky Rozay's team.
According to a reliable source within the Maybach Music Group camp pieces are falling into place. "Yes, I think its safe to say Omarion is MMG." As the Maybach Music empire continues to evolve it may not end there. Seems as if there is another offer on the table, "I don't want to let no cats out the bag but we'll see what's good with Ma$e." When pressed about what the roster may look like in the upcoming months, "As far as newest members Omarion and shout out to Ma$e if he wants to get down with this movement then we'll see what happens."
