Once Rick Ross signed Wale and Meek Mill to Maybach Music and then established the deal with Warner Bros. Records, no one doubted his business acumen. Always a big talker, Rick Ross proved he could also back it up. Rick Ross has stated, numerous times, he is always scouting for new artists.
With the Chicago hip hop scene quickly becoming the most-popular scene in the rap game, Rick Ross began searching for a MMG representative. Chief Keef would have been a likely prospect, but he has since signed to Interscope Records. Rockie Fresh, however, has been interacting with Rick Ross for months.
Last night, Rockie Fresh officially joined Maybach Music and he spoke to XXL about the union. Rockie Fresh explained how long he and Rick Ross had discussed and how he wanted the deal to go down. Even though he was recruited by other labels, Rockie always wanted to be with Maybach Music and held out until he received a proper deal with the label.
