*Maybach Music Group, the hip-hop imprint founded by Rick Ross, has inked a distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records — and today (Feb. 22) signed Atlanta rapper Pill to the roster, according to Billboard.
“This deal with Warner Bros. Records has been a long time in the making and I’m confident we’ve found the best home for Maybach Music,” says Ross in a statement. “Together we’re going to make hit records for years to come.”
The Warner Bros. partnership follows a month which saw rising hip-hop artists like Wale and Meek Mill sign new deals with Maybach Music. Pill (real name: Tyrone Rivers), who broke out in 2009 with the single “Trap Goin’ Ham,” is currently prepping his debut album.
Ross is also working on a new full-length album titled, “God Forgives, I Don’t.” His latest CD, “Teflon Don” spawned such hit singles as “Aston Martin Music” and “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast).”
The rapper will join Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Travis Barker on the I Am Still Music tour, which kicks off Mar. 18.
