Southern rapper Rick Ross continues to expand his growing Maybach Music Group roster by adding Philadelphia-based rapper Meek Mill to his crew.
Ross broke the news of his latest signing via Twitter last night (February 8).
“EVERYONE WELCOME @MEEKMILL TO THE EMPIRE!!! #MMG,” Ross tweeted.

Following the news, Meek opened up about his new association with Ross.
“I’m feelin’ good — feelin’ great, man,” Meek said in an interview. “That’s why Twitter‘s a good thing. You let people know what’s going on live and direct. Personally, I knew probably about a month ago. But I got a team [and] we had to all come to an agreement and find out how we was gonna do this and how we was gonna make this happen. We sat down, everybody got behind my decision, and we ready to roll.” (XXL Mag)
The deal comes just days after Wale announced signing with Ross’ Maybach Music Group.
With the Maybach Music Group still in a middle of a bidding war, the man himself, Wale has confirmed that he officially inked his deal with Rozay’s empire, but is still being managed by Roc Nation. Congrats! (Rap Radar)
