Last night Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill and Stalley all hit up Hot 97 in New York City to chat with Funkmaster Flex. While in town for their show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Ross cleared up any rumors that he was at odds with his record label, Def Jam, and maintained that things were on the up and up. It was rumored at a point that the delay for God Forgives, I Don’t and the lukewarm reception to singles “You Da Boss,” and “I Luv My Beyotches,” were leading Ross to take his talents to Birdman’s Cash Money Records. “Me and Def Jam [are] one hundred…Over the last year, I quadrupled my net worth,” he shared, before adding that he thought they needed to take another look at his deal.
Ross also updated listeners on the status of ex-MMG artist Pill. He explained that when he originally went to Warner Music Group with MMG, it was only Wale and Meek Mill that he brought to the table. “When I sat down to do my deal, they had Pill as an artist already there,” explains Ross. “They just thought he may have needed a little work or whatever and we could’ve got that in with the team. So we worked out a one year situation.”
