Maybach Music Group (MMG) signed act, Meek Mill was sentenced to three to six month in jail last Friday for violating his parole.
Fellow rapper, Rick Ross who is also the head of Maybach Music Group (MMG) has issued a statement regarding the rapper’s legal struggle.
Ross’s statement which was issued to MTV News is below;
“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.”
The MMG boss’s statement indicates that the group will not be abandoning the rapper just because of his legal problems. Meek’s new album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, is set to drop September 9 and his team still wants to make that date.
MMG, has however not addressed the social media ‘beef’ that recently happened between labelmates, Wale and Meek Mill.
