Rick Ross and the Maybach Music team held a special press conference at the Def Jam offices today.
RapRadar.com and Respect Mag founder Elliott Wilson moderated the event and kept the flow very smooth, asking the Bawse some questions that revealed a little more behind-the-music details of the Maybach Music empire.
Swizz Beatz took to the podium and revealed a few unknown facts about Rozay as well, ultimately placing the MMG General in a whole new creative light.
The Maybach Music family announced the release dates of their upcoming projects – including Rozay, who finally shared the release date of his sixth studio album God Forgives, I Don’t.
But the biggest announcement of them all was dedicated to naming the newest member of the MMG family. Safe to say, no one saw this one coming.
But for all of you who didn’t get a chance to tune in to the live stream, GlobalGrind’s got you covered. Here’s a list of the 10 things we found out from the Maybach Music press conference:
