After crashing sites with his Dreamchasers 2 mixtape, Meek Mill has announced he has inked a management deal with Roc Nation. He revealed the news to Jay-Z’s Life+Times blog. Like his labelmate Wale, he will remain under Maybach Music Group/Warner Bros. while being managed by Roc Nation.
L+T: So you’re signed to Roc Nation management…
MM: Yeah, that’s the new deal I put together. Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself. And my manager – he’s just like me, we’ve been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level.
L+T: Now that you’re aligned with two of the most important organizations in hip-hop, how do you feel that’s going to define your career?
MM: I think it’s going to take me to the next level. I’ve got Warner Bros. behind me, Maybach Music Group, and Roc Nation; some of the most powerful people in the game. That’s like 80 percent of the game right there. You know, Ca$h Money, they like family. So it’s like you’ve got everyone on your team at one time, and it feels good to have all that behind you at once. It’s like a force that can’t be stopped.
Granted, any deal is risky, but seemingly, the main focus at Roc Nation is Rihanna. Will the affiliation benefit Meek’s career as greatly as he expects? Let me know in the comments! Also, hit me up on FACEBOOK & follow me on TWITTER!
