After much speculation, rapper and entrepreneur Rick Ross announced today (May 2) that he has signed singer/actor Omarion to his growing label Maybach Music Group (MMG). The announcement took place at a press-conference at NYC’s Eventi Hotel. Press and label reps were present to welcome the MMG’s newly proclaimed “Maybach O” to the label which is also home to Meek Mill, Wale, Teedra Moss, and others.
Omarion has been a solo artist for nearly a decade, releasing three albums, ‘O,’ ’21,’ and ‘Face Off,’ a collabo album with rapper Bow Wow. Omarion was signed briefly with Lil Wayne’s Young Money in 2009, but soon left reportedly due to business concerns.
The new MMG member released his mixtape The Awakening in May 2011.
