On Friday, July 11, Meek Mill was hit with a three to six month jail sentence for a parole violation. Maybach Music Group honcho Rick Ross has issued a statement regarding his artist’s legal struggle.
Meek should have no worries about whether or not the MMG camp will support him after this step back.
Yesterday (July 12), Rozay sent the following statement to MTV News:
“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported. With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible. His album is coming. We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money,’ and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”
Meek’s new album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, is set to drop September 9 and his team still wants to make that date.
However, Ross has yet to issue a formal statement regarding the fall out Wale and Meek Mill have had, which made its way onto the Internets early last week.
