Rick Ross held a press conference in New York today flanked by none other than P Diddy himself and Lyor Cohen.. At the conference Ross announced his summer release date of his much anticipated God Forgives, I Don’t LP. and that Omarion‘s booty has found a new home.
MMG will release their second compilation Self Made, Vol. 2 will drop June 26 featuring the single “Bag of Money.”
After that, Rick drops his fifth album God Forgives, I Don’t on July 24. He added, “This is my best body of work yet.”
And if that wasn’t enough music, Meek Mill drops his MMG debut Dreams & Nightmares on August 28. His mixtape Dreamchasers 2 will be released on May 7 featuring appearances from Drake, Rick Ross, Gunplay, and 2 Chainz.
Also during the conference, Diddy stepped to the mic to thank Rick for helping him take Ciroc to the next level. Ciroc went from 40,000 cases to moving 2 million cases with Rick’s endorsement. Diddy added,
“He to me is definitely one of the hardest working men in this business. This is no accident. This is all designed, this is all planned out.”
“Today I become a made man. Omarion aka Maybach O.,” said the former B2K singer. His first single “Let’s Talk” features Rick and samples Notorious B.I.G. and Salt-n-Pepa.
While talking about their new working relationship, Rick said of Omarion,
“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.”
I hear a lot of rumors about Puff and Rick Ross….. Wasn’t the last record label that Omarion was briefly signed to was Cash Money before asking to be released from his contract? And now Omarion who basically has no career is signed to MMG.. O_O This pretty much confirms it for me.
