There’s no stopping the Maybach Music Group. Rick Ross’ new venture releases yet another clip from their Self Made Vol. 1 album. Meek Mill goes two for two dropping the club heavy “Imma Boss” featuring Rick Ross following the much successful “Tupac Back” anthem.
Meek Mill, along with other artists Big Sean, Mac Miller, Future and Big K.R.I.T. were all a part of this years 2011 Fab 5 MCs. We caught up with Meek where the Philly native spoke on his rise in the rap game.
Locally, Mill made a name for himself in Philly thanks to his fiery freestyles and street mixtapes, particularly his Flamerz series. His early efforts caught the attention of T.I. and Rick Ross, who collaborated with Meek on his “Rosé Red (Remix)” and eventually signed the young rapper to MMG.
“Before this, I ain’t have nothing I was actually chasing. I was just in the street living the life,” Meek said. Now, the rap rookie has a starring role on MMG’s Self Made Vol.1 compilation. Mill’s performances on standout tracks like “Tupac Back” and “I’m a Boss” have made the rap world take notice and, in the process, have made MM a ton of fans.
“My fans love me, they love what I do. If I don’t put out music for a long time, they anticipate all my mixtapes, they support me,” he said. “That’s why when I’m in the streets with my fans, if I can, I try to do everything that I can as far as how many pictures I take.”
Still, Meek insists he is a normal person and wants to live a normal life. He better soak it up while he can because things are changing quickly.
“Now, Ross be calling me ‘Meek Millionaire,’ actually; he always be saying it on new songs we be doing,” the MC said. “I ain’t there yet; I should be real soon: I’m gonna get my millionaire’s club membership real soon.”
