Rick Ross Signs MMG To Warner Bros.

photo: ernest estime

The bidding war that we first told you about is officially over. Rick Ross has found a home for his Maybach Music Group. Rozay sent me a text early this morning that said, “ink dry. Warner Bros. Big bucks”. Congrats to Lyor Cohen, an excited Joey IE and that must been a helluva lunch, Todd “Justin Bieber” Moscowitz. Ha! Now let’s get to work!

    Major moves are always bad for the music but these artists don’t give a fuck. Next Ross Album will have uncountable delays.

    No one really knows the ins and out but…
    Great look for Warner. They needed a spark. Considering TI being down, and possibly out, and Diggy’s excitement steady declining they needed a splash.. And got one.
    Not so much for Ross. He has no leverage. He’ll have his artist in another home that he doesn’t live. They’ll do right by him early in hopes of signing him as a free agent… But Def Jam will keep him and Warner will fade in support.
    I ain’t mad… Just make sure they paying in a certified check.. LOL

  • Young Sha

    Diggy is signed to Atlantic ^

  • mac DIESEL

    WOW, I WAS EXPECTIN’ HIM TO SIGN WIT THE OTHER JEW AT INTERSCOPE!!!!

    …AND SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ELLIOT “YELLOW BELL PEPPERS” WILSON TD STOP ACTIN’ LIKE A MMG GROUPIE!!!! IT’S PATHETIC!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    How by going gold? No artist on his roster will do Banks #’s…. Real shit… no artist on MMG will have a gold single like BBB… no matter how muck dick ridin YN does…

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Officer Ricky: Im hungry right now…
    Elliot: BOSS ! I can go get to McDonalds and get U the whole left side of the menu i’ll pay for it.
    Officer Ricky: U really want to be a part of MMG huh?
    Elliot: I dedicated my whole website to you BOSS. Every is Rick Ross this or Rick Rick that.

  • 106

    BBB was a garbage single. Shit Banks can’t even do those numbers again. He only went gold but that’s not bad for a CO.

  • Word

    @zoomzoomdatotis

    Lmao!

  • The Hater

    Thank you cold blood. Same question I ask.

    And can some one please tell me who in mmg? Who has a hot record, not even that, who can actually rap? Niggas signed a big ass deal just cuz, shit gonna fold in a few years. They got a Coke head, that little wack nigga from southside Dice who pop shit on DVDs, and I think meek mill would of been better off on his own on some wiz khalifa shit.

  • boston, mass – bry morgan – boston george

    coldblood is a homosexual hater… dork

    @boston, mass

    THAT WAS A VERY WEAK DISS, FUCKBOY! I SEE YOU DICKRIDIN’ RICKY, COZ YOU WANT A SHOTOUT FROM ROSS’ RIGHT HAND STAN ELLIOTT!

    YOU CAN HATE ME NOW!

  • http://rapradar g.u..mob

    rick ross is fake…….. reagardless of the moves you make fake is fake that’s no hate its just the truth.. and fake never stand’s the test of time so he better grab and save all the money while he can..the world is like one big movie anymore with all actor’s what happened to supporting the real and disregarding the fake.. this shit keeps going the way it’s going honestly 2012 might not be a bullshit myth.. i mean it’s obvious that most dont buy into his bullshit lyrics about being a drug dealer by the look of his sales.. but what the fuck happened to song’s like brenda’s got a baby or juicy shit like that.. it a fucking joke and sad that so many people call his album’s classics and his song great song’s.. wake the fuk up people if so many narrow mind’s think still talking just about drugs and bulnt’s chain’s and car’s is all there is.. i really understand what nas said when he said hiphop was dead…..

  • fuk waka aka rick ross hater

    smfh

  • g unit fan

    all this bidding war and signing 2 new artists to mmg is because 50 cent making moves behind the scenes to fuck ross’s career up. ross is finished at def jam,over done! triple c’s over done!dj khaled over done! all jumping ship from def jam. why? why did diddy get involved with ross outta the blue? why did they sign wale and meek mill to the group? its all to combat 50 cents moves.

  • studiothug2011

    Hate to say it but wale can actually sell some records now without putting out a video for every song on his album lol.

    @king banks can’t even do banks numbers. BBB was a gold hit but HFM2 Still can’t crack 150,000 records. Now no artist from MMG will ever do G-Unit (in its prime) numbers.

  • mr.300

    Funny how people get excited about some shit that ain’t got nothing to do with them. Warner is not make people rush out to buy a Wale, Gunplay, Torch album. How u have an empire with 1 person selling records? Dre, Em, 50 are examples of an Empire! Death Row was an empire. No Limit Empire. YMCM empire.

  • jged

    it wasnt no bidding war elliot make it seem like other labels wanted to sign him, iam pretty sure elliot is getting a fee. now adays niggas used their site like rapradar,wshh,rtn,sohh to associate them self with a certains rappers and get paid even the djs are doing that now, u have to pay them to play ur record, crazy shit

  • Citylivin’

    i wonder why G-Unit fans still so bitter?……i thought 50 Cent “killed Ross career”….so he says and so y’all say.

  • Good Move

    Ricky did the right thing. How can anyone hate on this?

    *Yn its cool to be a Ross fan but do you have to be such a groupie? First you was in the background of a tmz picture now he’s sending you early morning text, yall fuckin? HAHA! Just sayin cuzzo, knock it off.

    Congrats to Rick Ross cant wait to hear the new music.

  • ctg

    So does Ross owe Def Jam another studio album or is he done there?

    Looks like YMCMB will have some competition for top label this year.

    Also, they better change that MMG logo. I smell a lawsuit if he doesn’t.

  • Black Shady

    LMAO niggas going IN on YN hahahaha

    this shit gonna be a flop just watch!!! Ross is struggling to go gold. no way in hell there was a “bidding war” stop hyping this bullshit

  • ty

    Another point I love how ymcm is an empire all of a sudden.they been around almost 20 years and how many artists big artists they ever had? Only Wayne, Juvenile, and now after All these years Nicki and Drake did some numbers. They had one good year if it wasn’t for Wayne they would be over.

  • gregsimmsjr.

    You are some angry niggas. LOL! Damn. Ross ACOMPLISHED something. In this fucked up music business economy, he signed a DEAL for his label. That’s saying something for his business acumen. Respect, and then LEARN from what Ross did.

    And as far as if he was a “cop” or not? Does it matter. Really?
