Maybach Music Group's Teedra Moses recently chopped it up with SOHH and talked about officially welcoming latest signee Omarion to their growing empire.
According to Moses, she formally met the former B2K star down in boss Rick Ross' hometown.
"Yeah, I met up with him, with Ross, he was in Miami when we were in Ross' studio," Teedra told SOHH when asked if she has talked to Maybach O since he joined the team. "I met up with him and he's a really cool young man. I like Omarion. There's records from Omarion that I really, really love. We didn't have a chance to really build on anything but Ross was telling me what he really wants to do with him and asked me about writing some records for his project as well. I think it's a great fit for Ross [signing] Omarion." (SOHH)
Aside from hinting at a possible collaboration later down the road, Moses also detailed her process for putting together joint records.
"I'm not very selective, I love making music," Teedra added when asked about her process for choosing collaborations. "I just like making it very organically. I just like to make sure a song comes together organically and right. ... I make music a lot on my own because that's the situation I'm often in, listening, creating and coming up on my own. I love to make music and take it to anybody, whether it's collaborating with any collaborator [in MMG] or any other camp." (SOHH)
Last month, Maybach O discussed his first impression of Ross' team and knowing he wanted to join forces.
"I remember being in the studio for the first time with [Ross], and just going through records," says Omarion. "He was sitting in the studio, and he tells his engineer, 'Get Meek on the Skype.' He got Meek on Skype, and was on the phone with Wale at the same time, and was just orchestrating. And then he had me in the studio and was like, "All right O, I need you to hop on the hook. Wale, I need you to do that. And Meek, send that song over to me.'" For the former B2K member, that group mentality immediately resonated. "Coming from a group, being part of a group, you understand how much value that holds in the success that you do, because everybody's on one page and everybody can see one goal," he says. "I was just like, 'Wow, they have the relationship that I've been looking for in a new team.'" (Billboard)
The singer recently delved into his new situation with Maybach Music Group.
"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)
