As an artist, Rick Ross is still signed with Def Jam, but his label, Maybach Music, has left the Warner umbrella and will now be distributed by Atlantic. Ross called the move “the biggest move of the year.” Via Baller Status:
“I got another announcement as well. I’m excited for this year we got coming up man. This is really huge. MMG we just merged with Atlantic Records. It’s the biggest move of the year. We gonna leave it right there,” Rozay said, while clarifying his own solo situation. “I’m signed as a solo artist to Def Jam. And Meek Mill, Wale, we all MMG at the end of the day.”
Interestingly, Young Jeezy, a man with whom Ross has literally come to blows, is Atlantic’s Senior VP of A&R.
