Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group just grew by one artist this week, with Chicago newcomer Rockie Fresh inking a deal with the imprint.
Rozay took to Twitter (@RickyRozay) Thursday morning (July 12) to make the announcement: “Everyone Welcome @rockiefresh to the @MaybachMusicGrp Family!!!!”
Over the past 12 months, Rockie has made noise via a handful of self-released mixtapes, including Modern Life, The Otherside, and Driving 88; and has already toured with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.
Following Rozay’s welcoming tweet, the rapper followed with his own, also announcing that he’s now, proudly waving the MMG flag. “Salute to @RickyRozay for seeing my vision. We #RichForever #MMG,” Rockie wrote (@RockieFresh).
Rockie joins a roster at MMG that already includes Wale, Meek Mill, Stalley, and Omarion.
With the ink on the contract still drying, Rockie also announced his “Electric Highway” tour, which he is headlining.
After finishing out current dates with Meek Mill on his Dream Chasers Tour, Rockie will embark on his own tour in August, kicking things off on August 30 in Maryland, before heading out and making stops in Houston, New Orleans, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The final stop comes on October 24th in Pittsburgh, PA.
