Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is getting a head start on 2014 by inking a couple of new hip-hop artists with Washington, DC’s Fat Trel and Atlanta’s Tracy T.
The unexpected announcements were posted onto Ricky Rozay’s Maybach Music Group Twitter page last night (November 6).
“Salute to our DC shooter @Fattrel, the newest artist signed to WaleMusic/MMG/Atlantic Records. Congratulate him. #doublem #blackbottleboys,” a post read November 6.
“Les salute Atlanta’s own @therealtracyt. He MMG. We promise u will hear some of the biggest records from him. MMG/Atlantic #blackbottleboys”
“. @TheRealTracyT is the truth! Make sure you do your homework on him. MMG!”
“Luv to @therealtracyt, he official! He MMG! Salute and Congratulate him! http://instagram.com/p/gZPGDDs5Cg/”
“. @FATTREL and @TheRealTracyT is part of the future of MMG. We just gettin started!” (Maybach Music Group’s Twitter)
The “Bawse” also jumped onto his Twitter page to confirm the big signings.
“Every realn*gga has his day. #powercircle,” Ross tweeted November 6. (Rick Ross’ Twitter)
Over the summer, reports claimed MMG would be Fat Trel’s new label while Roc Nation would handle his management.
2013 has been good to DMV artist Fat Trel and it just got a little bit better. Reports are saying Fat Trel has inked a contract with MMG and is now a member of the family, where his good friend Wale also resides. Word is he signed Roc Nation to handle management duties as well. Expect the official announcement soon. (Rap Exclusive)
The East Coast rapper’s manager was reportedly responsible for stirring up the signing buzz.
It looks like the DMV area has a reason to celebrate this weekend. Reports are stating that Washington D.C. artist, Fat Trel, has signed a deal with MMG/ Roc Nation. Fat Trel’s manager, Debo, recently put out a picture through his Instagram account that revealed the contract in which Fat Trel had just signed (seen in gallery above). This shouldn’t come as much of suprise though considering Trel has been very vocal about his friendship with fellow artist and now label-mate Wale. (Hot New Hip Hop)
In March, No Limit Records founder Master P revealed his business relationship with Trel.
“I feel there’s no other artist on the street hotter than him, making the type of music he makes,” Master P told MTV News of Alley Boy, who was seated right beside him. “I thought it was only right for this mob, what we’re building over here and what he’s already created with Duct tape. This is my partner, Fat Trel is my partner so, this the next generation of No Limit Forever, the revolution.” (MTV)
