When Rick Ross proclaimed Maybach Music would be the next Young Money, he was not playing around. For years, Lil Wayne had been the top gun and Young Money was more of a project. His label had a big year, in 2009, when Drake and Nicki Minaj were signed, and they had a monster year in 2010.
After failing to land Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross proceeded to finish the year of 2010 as one of the biggest artists. While recording new music, early in 2011, he began signing new artists to Maybach Music. The signing of Wale proved how big his label was going to become. He followed this with Pill and Meek Mill.
Earlier this year, Warner Bros. Records agreed to become the home of Maybach Music. They helped him distribute the Maybach Music album and build the empire. Rick Ross was far from down, however, still looking for more talent. Yesterday, DJ Scream announced he was the latest Maybach Music signee and he promised to deliver.
Speaking on his deal with Maybach Music, DJ Scream said he fits right in the the Maybach family. Ross said this is one of the moves he is most proud of.
