Rick Ross has an endorsement deal with Reebok and now his Maybach Music Group rhyme slinger, Meek Mill, has signed an official deal with PUMA.
The deal reportedly makes the Philadelphia rapper the newest ambassador for the sports lifestyle brand. To celebrate the union, PUMA will be working with Meek for their Be The Next Dreamchaser music series.
“PUMA and Philadelphia-based specialty retailer Villa launched the Be the Next Dreamchaser music series to give aspiring and emerging artists an opportunity to make their voice heard on a live stage,” said PUMA in a press release statement. “By submitting their demo entries through DJBooth.net, PUMA and Villa will select 10 finalists who will be featured on a mixtape hosted by PUMA and available for download at DJBooth.net and at select Villa stores. Two of the ten lucky MCs will be selected to open for Meek Mill in a special PUMA and Meek Mill concert later this fall.”—Mark Lelinwalla
