Rick Ross is a busy man. During a press-conference held in New York City today, Ross announced some release dates, a clothing-line project and more importantly, that he has signed Omarion to Maybach Music Group imprint. Ross explained how the signing went down:
“I ran into the homie, we had a few conversations and I flew him down to Miami and he played me a dozen records. I was amazed by the music he put together. We had a few conversations and we made a situation happen. He’s a phenomenal entertainer. His dancing is incredible. He’s an actor, he’s a writer. I thought it would be a great move for both of us. I’ve been looking to enter the R&B arena, I felt he was the best artist to kick the doors open.”
The boss also revealed the release date of his much anticipated forthcoming full-length God Forgives, I Don't. The album will come via Def Jam on July 31. On the new album Ross was sure to hype it up by stating that it was his "best body of work yet." He also hinted that a new single would drop "soon."
In addition to these noteworthy items, Swiss Beatz, who was also on-hand, announced that he was working with Ross on a Reebok line for big and tall men. Finally, Ross revealed that Meek Mill will be dropping his Maybach Music Group debut Dreams & Nightmares on August 28. [Rap-Up]
