It seems like everyone was caught off guard earlier this week when it was reported Meek Mill was sentenced to 3 to 4 months in jail because of a probation violation, including the rapper himself who just this week announced the September release date of his forthcoming LP, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Secondary reports claim that Meek will only spend the next 3 to 4 weeks in the bing. However it turns out, provisions are in order. MMG CEO Rick Ross recently released a statement exclusively to MTV on his artist’s current situation and how it will affect the upcoming album.
“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported. With that came a commitment,” said Rozay. “I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible.”
