Rick-Ross

Hip-Hop Rumors: Rick Ross Wants to Renegotiate His Deal With Def Jam?


Rick Ross was on New York City’s HOT 97 last night along with his MMG conglomerates Meek Mill, Wale, and Stalley to clear up a few rumors floating around. There has been recent rumbling of Rozay wanting to leave Def Jam for Cash Money. Although Rozay said everything was “one-hundred” with Def Jam, he left himself some wiggle room by adding that Def Jam needs to take another look at his deal….aka we need to renegotiate……aka they need to give me more money! Def Jam had better be ready to write a huge check.

Ross also discussed the recent departure of ex-MMG artist Pill. Apparently, Pill was never really a part of MMG to begin with, and Warner Music Group was actually the ones who brought Pill into the mix.

“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.”

It looks like Pill’s year was up, and Ross wasn’t impressed with his progress so he sent him packing.

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    since when did being a phat regurjatating mc(whip it like its annamae..heard that bar on three of his last tracks)who takes a nigga identity and had his bitch fuk another dude on tape…since when is dat shit marketable…HELLO dis nigga was correctional officer…the only coke this dude knws ends in cola…someone tell me y labels on this wack ass nucca jock….son got good prouduction though… the nicest overweight nigga in the game is fred da godson

    • AlbertoRipRon

       Nothing new is under the sun b…stop hating on ross.  He has done what many has done before him. 

    • Fred is not the nicest overweight nigga. Joel ortiz 10 times better and action bronson. Fred is nice but has the same typical bars some metaphors he isn’t coming up with anything new. 

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

         Joel will eat all them dudes for lunch … but fred def got some slick lines too … but not that original so in a sense hes predictable … but Joel … Joel Ortiz ….. will rip all these dudes a new one

  • The_REAL_realtalk

    I mean, dude only goes gold which is good overall but not good enough to demand renegotiations LOL.  You don’t hold anything of value to barter with for Def Jam to take a loss and oblige your request. 

  • this nigga dont move enough units to ask for this, but what do i know? If theyll go for it then why not? But as big as you think you are, the sales dont back that up

  • EL_BARK

    They not even going to consider it.

    His last album barely went gold.
    After 10 months.

    Self made flop.

    And wale prolly stick around for one more album then
    Bounce.

  • Yo, when have you heard Ross say some sick sh-t ??? or some slick sh-t??? This n-gga says the same sh-t damn near every verse DOUBLE M – G, This n-gga rap like BABY! candy paint, money and the power. The only songs Ross is decent on is when he has nice beat. Thats it.

  • R_REAL_TALK

    he needs to renegotiate with the real rick ross on given him back his name, only then he can go by fat Albert his real name not until then ???

  • stop hating on ross he doiing big things voted number 2 best vocalist has up and coming hottest rappers sold more copies than 50 cent and almost on every remix out there stop hating 305 fo lyfe

    • When put like that , I have to agree , but personally , he rates between doodoo gritz & stale a$$ butter.

    • EL_BARK

      First of all the that # 2 vocalist dont mean shet.
      Who actually doing the voting ???? Okay then.

      The fact that you have to compare him out selling 50 cents is an fail in itself.

      Get rich ir die trying sold more then all of ross albums out together.
      So no he didnt out sale 50 cents.

      And since when does jumping on everybody track makes you hot ????

      You miami are clowns if yall support this fraud niggaz,
      Well i wont say miami niggaz, but only frauds support this niggaz.

      He giving miami a bad rep.

    • His last album didn’t outsell 50’s worst album.

    •  lmao sold more than 50? u know 50s first album is at 12 million and his second album is about 5 and his 3rd is about 1.5….wtf u smokin on, u a CO also?

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    what on earth are u talking about 2nd best vocalists to who…shit is justin bieber number 1…and hottest artist…nucca please gunplay is ass cheeks…wale is ok…sometimes..everybody else ain’t worth words…and y is is dat in hip hop if u disagree with someone its hate…im a real ass nigga with my personal opinon and if i think son is garbage then dats whut it is…and if i feel all these south rappers always on each other tracks saying nothing alongside some deserters from up north(puffy)like there hip hop version of the super freinds is wack as shit then its my opinion..i dnt ask for ppl to feel how i feel…it has nothing to do wit hate…i stay away  from the fake..in life and music

    • Nigga tell these wack ass east coast rappers to sell some records 1st, then maybe you can talk reckless about the south.  And when I say east coast rappers selling records I mean more than just Jay-Z.

  • MD42

    This guy’s albums at best move only 500k units… Ross has smoked himself retarded. He better stop messing with Def Jam, they’ll just shelf your whole project and then its on to the next artist.

  • this ngga ross is as fake as they come. he acts like he got rich from sellin birds overseas. truthfully hes just playing the boss roll, faggot as nigga. and people have the nerve to say hes better the BIG LOL ?  ross can suck a dick

  • if he was a real boss he wouldnt be dealin with def jams little deals lmao

  • Mugshot_McGruff

    3 albums, none plat and now he wanna re-negotiate? hahahahahah

    Def Jam gone hang him over the balcony like Big Red did to Falcon on the 5 Heartbeats “What are my hours”

  • its clear everybody is just about sick of officer ross…how do we get him to go away is the question…

  • $18916246

    Offisur Rozie and his internal affairs….who cares!!!! Meek,Wale, Stalley…better bail….ya boss is wearing a wire. I’m sucker free and cordless.

  • BTV GLOBAL FILMS

    Wasn’t this the guy that said he’s a BOSS and his cd was coming out back in December when he was trying to clown Jeezy?  YOU notice his cd didn’t come out and it got pushed back and never heard of again. he try to fool by putting a out a dumb ass mixtape.

    • dayleedumped

      yeah i remember that, rock ross a bitch thats what he gets. karma. ‘we dont push back albums, nah we dont do that here’ – rick ross… phoney.

    • And then the only thing people talked about from that whole mixtape was Drake’s verse on Stay Schemin’ & Common’s response on his remix of it.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      sometimes u gotta watch what you say cause it can come back to bite you …. especially when the title of your album is GOD FORGIVE I DONT ….  smh lol 😉

  • Jahb1911

    Am I crazy, i know rick ross hot, but why do people act like he sold 10 million records? He barely goes gold.. people act like he’s the hottest thing since slice bread…

  • Bosshogg973

    You niggas in here are fuckin retarded. Def jam ain’t shit no more! Ross is the hottest nigga over there right now! They gon do that deal over cuz they know they need that nigga! Ross albums might not go platinum but his singles does. That nigga was eating heavy during that Khalid wave! I fucks with that nigga Ross. Not for nothing how he doin it is sorta how BIG was doing it back then. If you don’t like the homie music don’t listen to it! Go listen to Wayne garbage ass! Now he’s a fuckin trash ass rapper. He ain’t been hot since the squad up 4 mix tape!!

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

       if they “need” ross say goodbye to hip hop …. i remember real staples @ that company like DMX, Rocafella, Ja Rule etc… those are artist labels “need” … Joie def got load on his back … def good luck to him hopefully he can bring def jam back … but i think that will come with finding some new talent … they can easily sign any artist out there and go gold with the project …. they need a multi-plat seller … not saying ross cant get there … hopefully he does one day …. but we gotta wait to see on that next album that drops …

    • ummmm….YOUNG JEEZY IS PAST GOLD ALREADY. HE WILL BE PLAT SOON. HE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE HALF THE PROMO OFFICER WILLIAM ROBERTS HAD.

      • Bosshogg973

        Ross got the radio buzzing though! His music getting more spins than jeezy! Don’t get me wrong, I love jeezy but rozay shutting it down as far as radio is concerned….

        Sent from my Windows Phone
        ——————————

      • BRUH, THE POINT IS HE AINT MAKING THE COMPANY NO MONEY! HE ONLY GETTING SPINS BECAUSE THE RECORD COMPANY PAID FOR IT. AND IT’S NOT HIS SONGS THAT ARE GETTING SPINS IT’S THE RECORDS WITH DRAKE AND WAYNE AND THE WHOLE INDUSTRY ON THEM. HE AINT CAME OUT WITH AN ALBUM AND HE HAS NO RELEASE DATE. JEEZY SOLD MORE THAN HIM IN A MONTH AFTER MULTIPLE ALBUM PUSH BACKS, BARLEY GETTING HIS RECORDS PLAYED(DEF JAM DIDN’T PAY STATIONS OFF) AND HARDLY ANY PROMO LIKE HIS LAST ALBUMS.

        SO I GUESS JUMPING ON A BUNCH OF RECORDS WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE SPOT LIGHT MAKES YOU THE HOTTEST RAPPER OUT NOW?

  • Ross ain’t negating nothing what he going to do to DEF JAM. Fool that’s Def Jam. I tell you these PR people come up with some of the dumbest shit sometimes. And like everybody else said on here that dude barely goes GOLD. Look at how much money they put into that dude GTFOH with this undercover cop ass dude… 

  • ANDRE SALAZAR

    Ross says dumb things all the time, so NO ONE should be surprised!! The worst or funniest thing I’ve ever heard about this clown is that he’s somehow similar to “Biggie”?!!? C’mon son! This FOOL couldn’t even pull the chicks “Big” had! SMH

  • this is why i miss them old, x, nas, 50 and g-unit days, dipset, n the lox, we stuck wit phonies and wack ass rappers talkin about wat? i got more cars than u, more bitches than u, i wear 10k gold chains, where is the substance ? their isnt any moral to the story when these songs come out, no creativity, u got songs like welcome to my house party!! wtf is that shit? im stick to my ipod with my old school 90 music and early 2000’s cause wen im bumpin it in the whip the whole hood loves that shit,

    • understandingoverignorance

      You forgot to mention how many birds of cocaine they move.

    • ace batolini

       everyone you named up there talked about the same shit you stated except x

  • ItGoesDownINtheDM

     lol ROSS U WANT MORE MONEY SELL MORE RECORDS IN MY JOIE MANDA VOICE Lol 😉

  • digitallife

    Never cared that he was a c.o. anyone who’s been in the system, or has family in the system knows that C.O.’s are some of the grimiest mofo’s on earth. He’s making noise, he won the war with 50, give this man credit I can’t think of too many rappers who could’ve survived that fiasco and gone on to do some of the major moves this guy has done. Call him fake, call him popo, but don’t deny this is a smart mofo…don’t believe it look at what his parents did for a living…

    • siddiq ja’far

      Disillusional, Its not the fact that he was a CO, its all about he lied about it. Ross is a pathological liar, a man that has no integrity has no worth in my eyes. I dont bump his music but what I hear on the radio is subpar, Biggie wasnt the greatest & this dude is no comparison to Big. Again, what type of man are you to emulate a man that wants nothing to do with you? This nigga freeway taking this man to court & he still dickriding this nigga! I never heard Ross go plat yet, this is whats wrong with hiphop now. A hotbeat & namedropping food ,drugs & clothes dont make you a good mc, the only reason he relevant is the machine behind him  (his none response, good PR team, Jay-Z invented the nonresponse tactic after Ether) & the internal matters thats going on with 50 at shady when 50 had his BMs talking about how fake he is. He’s not smart cause smart muthafuckas have dignity, integrity & a conscious, clearly William has none of that

  • CaliTransplant

     Homie, have you heard “Rich Forever?!” I used to HATE the BIG comparisons to Ross, cause what needs to be said about Biggie; fire ass lyrics all day! But, have you heard Ross lately? He’s spttin them lyrics! Who cares what his background was, this dude got rap on lock right now. Ross is the hottest rapper out in the world right now, hate it or love it…Did you hear his verse on Wale’s Ambition?!?! Drake’s joint on Take Care?! That shit is fire, str8 heat..I finally had to give it up to homie, he’s rapping his ass off…Plus, he’s building MMG into a force to be reckoned with. Him at Cash Money, not happening. Def Jam knows whats up. They are gonna have to unass some fetti like now!

    • nastinupe

      Yeah, like any of them dudes really kill people every weekend.  Come on son.  It’s a fantasy, that’s all it is.  

      • CaliTransplant

        Neither did BIG. Neither did Nas, Jay-Z or Ice Cube. Nor TI, Ludacris, Redman, Eminem, none of Slaughterhouse except maybe Crooked I, EPMD, Melle Mel, Big Daddy Kane, Biz, Dr. Dre, Xzibit, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, Lupe, Black Thought, Jadakiss, the list goes on and on. Since when did you have to kill someone in hip hop to be a dope lyricist? News flash: it’s all fantasy, son.

  • $18916246

    Offisur Rosie….Should name his new CD “INTERNAL AFFAIRS”….Dude is a fake…because of what he spits…selling  a drug kingpin’s life…and wishing on records he was a Boss. He’s fascinated with a now made fashionable existence, backed by Florida fried lies. The ” REAL” Rick Ross has warned dude. I’ma pray for sunshine, but it smell like rain…..money makes hits….yep number 1 with a bullet.

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    rap is now pop which means talent is no longer the great equalizer..hence why there is so much wackness in the game like this big belly bastard..hip hop makes us look stupid…for instance the only thing dat sells now is rap about money in an depresion state no less…so how we look…da boss expects to put out music about how much money he has and how much other lacks(talking bout you actually)while we supposed to pay money dat we supposedly dnt have…nucca please..and if anyone thinks ross elementry predictable bars are nice..then listen to spitters like papoose,raekwon,ghost,doony g,kiss,az,max beastly,vado,fred da god,just to name a few…listen to the real underground spitters…not jus in my neck of the woods in the rotten apple but everywhere..concern member of hip hop and its fake status
