Does the week even officially start until MMG drops a video on our asses? I submit that it does not. Here’s the new music video for Actin’ Up off of the second installment of the colossal MMG collaborative series, Self Made 2.
Rick Ross and the rest of Maybach Music Group have a big summer upcoming so Rozay decided to take some time on YouTube as he so often does to talk about what’s coming up and what’s next for him and his artists.
Meek Mill had himself quite the 25th birthday, fresh off of releasing his record-breaking number mixtape Dreamchasers 2 Meek was in his hometown of Philly to celebrate his accomplishments and two and a half decades of life. Rick Ross, Wale, French Montana, Juelz Santana, Jahlil Beats, and more were all in attendance to celebrate alongside their brother and Rozay even gifted Meek a brand new 2012 Range Rover. MMG is most certainly on top.
Both MMG’s Wale and the leader of the A$AP Mob came through Tim Westwood’s UK studio recently and both laid down some incredible freestyles that we have right here for you. Happy Freestyle Friday!
Plenty of hip hop heads were in attendance in NYC yesterday afternoon for the MMG press conference. Many were asking, “why a press conference?” Just like everything MMG does, it has a big time feel. The videos on YouTube look more like mini-movies and trailers, album releases are on par with movie premiers, and it only seemed appropriate to dish out a mass amount of news at a press conference. The names at this press conference certainly are among the wealthiest in hip-hop, with Ross, Diddy, and Swizz Beatz on stage at the same time before they are joined by Wale, Meek Mill, and French Montana. Stalley was absent due to his current tour overseas in Europe.
The pinnacle of the press conference certainly came with the announcement of Maybach Music’s newest signee Omarion (or his new alias, Maybach O). Omarion can certainly bring the smooth R&B feel to MMG’s music to bring them to a new level. Rick Ross also announced the release date for his highly anticipated, highly delayed, new album God Forgives, I Don’t. This monumental album has officially been set to drop July 31st of this summer. This should be a huge album and I wouldn’t be surprised of another delay, but usually the setting of a date means the songs are recorded and done minus the legality bullshit. French Montana also made a late appearance announcing his debut album, Excuse My French, will be dropping July 17th and will be executively produced by both Rozay and Diddy.
The first single off of Maybach Music’s collaborative Self Made Vol. 2 now has it’s lead video for it’s single Bag Of Money. This song goes hard and the video is definitely on some new shit.
Rick Ross and the rest of Maybach Music Group have an open press conference planned for 2pm today. Keep it locked in here. Hopefully get some announcements as to a release for Self Made II or Meek Mill’s debut solo LP. Plenty of big news out there that could be revealed today, stay tuned.
