As if receiving a brand new 2012 Range Rover wasn’t already something to smile about for Meek Mill, earlier today it was announced that the 25 year-old was the next artist to link up with the ever-growing roster at Jigga’s Roc Nation, which also includes his MMG brethren Wale and his go-to-man Jahlil Beats. Here’s excerpts from the interview Via Life + Times:
L+T: So you’re signed to Roc Nation management…
Meek Mill: Yeah, that’s the new deal I put together. Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself. And my manager – he’s just like me, we’ve been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level.
L+T: Now that you’re aligned with two of the most important organizations in hip-hop, how do you feel that’s going to define your career?
Meek Mill: I think it’s going to take me to the next level. I’ve got Warner Bros. behind me, Maybach Music Group, and Roc Nation; some of the most powerful people in the game. That’s like 80 percent of the game right there. You know, Ca$h Money, they like family. So it’s like you’ve got everyone on your team at one time, and it feels good to have all that behind you at once. It’s like a force that can’t be stopped.
