(AllHipHop News) Maybach Music Group is close to inking a deal with rising Miami rapper Ice Berg, who recently spoke with AllHipHop.com about his relationship with Rick Ross' record label.
The negotiations come on the heels of Ice Berg's latest mixtape "Strictly 4 The Streets Vol. 3."
"It was just a politicking move, shout out to Fat Boy Rozay (Rick Ross). Me and him had a relationship, he just reached out to give me some different light and exposure," Ice Berg told AllHipHop.com. "He showed me New York, since I've never been up there. [He] shows me different things he knows, talks to me. It's some gangsta s**t going on between me and him. He's just reaching back and showing some love."
Ice Berg hopes to join Rick Ross' growing stable of artists, which includes Meek Mill, Wale, Triple C's, Omarion, Maybach Dice, Stalley and others.
The possible deal comes at a high point in Rick Ross' career.
The rapper's fifth album, God Forgives, I Don't, currently sits on top of the Billboard 200 Pop Charts. It's also Rick Ross' fourth #1 album.
