Ross has been signed to Def Jam since 2006. He has put out eight studio albums under the label, including last year’s Black Market. Many have speculated Ross was signing with Epic after he shared photos of him together with L.A. Reid.
During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Rozay gave even more hints that he was heading over to Epic when he admitted that negotiations for his contract as a solo artist were already underway.
"I’ma be honest, right now we are in the middle of re-negotiations. It’s a lot of people coming to the table. It’s a lot of people bringing a lot of new excitement to the table," he said. "It is my last album [with] Def Jam Records. I’ve been nothing but successful, they been a part of everything that I’ve created. They helped built this empire that I am a part of, and I respect and love them for that. Right now, you know where we at, ya dig? Most definitely, shout out to L.A. Reid, ya dig?”
From the looks of it, Ross has signed a solo deal, but it is possible it could include Maybach Music Group and its artists in the future. Stay tuned.
