Like a true boss, Rick Ross held a press conference in New York on Wednesday to announce his newest ventures. The industry’s top executives including Diddy, Swizz Beatz, and Lyor Cohen were on hand to support the rapper.
During the event the Teflon Don made a surprise announcement when he revealed that he has signed Omarion to Maybach Music Group. “Today I become a made man. Omarion aka Maybach O.,” said the former B2K member, who is readying an EP. His first single “Let’s Talk” features Rozay and samples Notorious B.I.G. and Salt-n-Pepa.
Ross explained how he linked up with 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,” he said. “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.”
