Under the MMG banner, Ross has previously released music from a roster of top-tier artists, including Meek Mill, Wale, and Gunplay, through a partnership with Epic Records. However, this new deal with Gamma opens up a world of possibilities for the label and its artists, expanding their reach beyond the realm of music.
One of the most exciting aspects of this partnership is Ross’s commitment to spearheading a series of multimedia projects. While he’s renowned for his lyrical prowess and captivating beats, Ross’s foray into multimedia promises a new dimension of creativity that fans can eagerly anticipate.
To celebrate the partnership, Rick Ross and Meek Mill, two hip-hop heavyweights, have dropped the electrifying single “Shaq & Kobe.” The release not only signifies a musical collaboration but also marks a reconciliation between the two artists, putting to rest rumors of a rift between them. Even more thrilling, Ross and Meek Mill have plans in the pipeline for a full-length collaborative album, a project that fans have long yearned for.
Adding another layer of excitement to this venture is the inclusion of Breyon Prescott, Ross’s longtime business partner and manager, who now assumes the role of Executive Vice President of Content at Gamma. Prescott brings with him his Chameleon Music Group, which boasts a storied history of collaboration with major players in the music industry, including J Records and RCA. His extensive experience working with artists like Brandy, Diddy, and Dr. Dre makes him a valuable addition to the Gamma team.
In a joint statement, Ross and Prescott expressed their enthusiasm for the partnership. “You know Breyon and I have been making money together for a long time, even more important, we have always been able to do great business, which is why I look forward to this partnership with Gamma. This is a big move for Larry to be in the position he’s in and for me to be in the position I’m in; it’s only right we come together and make some historic moves,” Ross remarked.
Gamma founder Larry Jackson, who has worked alongside Prescott for over two decades, shared his excitement about having Prescott on the team. “He’s always delivered hits, and we are proud to have him on the team here at Gamma,” Jackson said. He also expressed his gratitude to Rick Ross for being one of the first artists to believe in Gamma, noting that Ross’s early support meant a great deal to him.
Breyon Prescott echoed the sentiment, saying, “I’m excited to be part of the passionate team at Gamma. Larry and I first worked alongside each other with the legendary Clive Davis, where we broke many artists and enjoyed a historic musical run. I look forward to introducing fresh talent and compelling new ventures. With my arrival at Gamma, I wanted to walk in the door with one of the most iconic artists and business leaders that I have been honored to work with and have shared major success with: Rick Ross!”
The first project to emerge from this dynamic partnership will be the highly anticipated collaboration between Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Fans can hardly wait to experience the musical synergy of these two rap titans.
As Rick Ross and Maybach Music Group embark on this exciting journey with Gamma, the music industry and fans alike can expect a wave of groundbreaking music and multimedia content that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact.
