Rick Ross Wants to Renegotiate His Deal With Def Jam and speaks on pill
 

 
dont know but barely goes gold

Last night Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill and Stalley all hit up Hot 97 in New York City to chat with Funkmaster Flex. While in town for their show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Ross cleared up any rumors that he was at odds with his record label, Def Jam, and maintained that things were on the up and up. It was rumored at a point that the delay for God Forgives, I Don’t and the lukewarm reception to singles “You Da Boss,” and “I Luv My Beyotches,” were leading Ross to take his talents to Birdman’s Cash Money Records. “Me and Def Jam [are] one hundred…Over the last year, I quadrupled my net worth,” he shared, before adding that he thought they needed to take another look at his deal.

Ross also updated listeners on the status of ex-MMG artist Pill. He explained that when he originally went to Warner Music Group with MMG, it was only Wale and Meek Mill that he brought to the table. “When I sat down to do my deal, they had Pill as an artist already there,” explains Ross. “They just thought he may have needed a little work or whatever and we could’ve got that in with the team. So we worked out a one year situation.”

WhaT is there to talk about with the label ? Dude has had the biggest buzz the past few years and STILL can't go platinum
His buzz just began during his last album in 2010, he hasn't actually dropped a solo album since his buzz became what it is...

Why not? It's true. Pill was sitting on Warner with XV for a while. I remember seeing him on the web site, before the MMG deal.

You did read the article right? The public ain't responding to some of the songs from GFID. If it keeps up like this, that album might not even hit Gold.

Then he'll probably have a 100% chance of being dropped.
Ross's singles never really crossover, he's only big on urban radio for the most part. You Da Boss was charting pretty decently, but that song hasn't really been pushed at all. Still no video either. And why would he get dropped, consistently going well over gold with every album is bad now?

And also Rich Forever is like the most downloaded mixtape ever according to Dat Piff. Over 1.1 million downloads in a couple months, people are obviously checking for his music. Not sure how his album could really do worse than Gold once again.

i think def jam was in serious label turmoil for the past year(hence why everybody had a push back).

if stay scheming and the whole drake diss wasn't on the tape would rich forever be this big

wiz made datpiff, hnhh and livemixtapes crash yesterday but he is not a platinum selling album artist. so because he did a mill downloads don't mean he will have a mill buys

I think for his buzz, consistently not going Platinum is bad, yeah. And he did have some big buzz before that last album came out. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

BMF ain't even go gold though
Cause, like I said, his singles don't get that kind of play all over. He's only big on urban radio and clubs. We all know how big the song was, but it ain't Drake or Wayne single big.

This. People dont realize that the people who run the label has changed to many damn times and when they change the leads, they change the staff. Just look at all the people who were in leadership roles at Def Jam in the past 5-6 years....Most of them are gone, RIP but one of em even committed suicide.

Hell they just announced a new leader today lmao.


People dumb enough to think Jeezy or Ross have anything to do with each others releases deserve to stay ignorant. One is a consistent platinum artist, the other is a very popular consistent gold selling artist. Going Gold or platinum in this climate are both great things. Hell selling 300K in a business where you can have a hot single, but only sell 80K is a great thing.


He wants to restructure his deal because he probably wants to make more off his singles, and give up a bit more on the album side of things. It'd prove lucrative for both he and the label if this were done. Hes not going to get dropped, because competing labels like Warner, Atlantic, Cash Money, or Interscope would love to have him registering singles in the Hot 100 for them.


Hes never going to go platinum though...I mean hes done everything possible at this point to attract more sales and it hasnt happened....He had the hottest songs out, still no plat, he had the hottest collabos on his sh*t, still no plat, he had the controversies and the beef sh*t...still no plat...He had the better music(Teflon Don/Deeper Than Rap) still no plat.....At this point to go platinum he'd need Adele singing his hooks and Eminem/Dr. Dre executive producing...cause hes tried everything else and they dont know where to go next.... And even though Im not to fond of the guy as of late, i'll admit he doesnt need to.

I think any reasonable and intelligent person would surmise that the timing of the negations coinciding with Joie Manda being named president of Def Jam is no coincidence.


Joie Manda has been working closely with Rozay & MMG while they were both on Warner and their close relationship and success makes it no surprise that their Def Jam relationship would bring more points and a bigger budget for the next Rozay project or projects.
