After 10 years of partnership with the management of Roc Nation, Meek Mill made headlines this week when reports surfaced that he had severed ties with the imprint.
First signed to Roc in 2012 under a management deal, the surprising end to the professional relationship has led fans to believe that Meek – who has expressed frustrations with his Atlantic record label in the past – had taken similar umbrage with his management house.
However, the rapper (born Robert Williams) quickly took to Twitter to put the idea to rest. Look inside to see what he said.
As seen in the tweets above, Mill confirmed that his departure from Roc was more of an opportunity for personal development than a sign of discontent. He clarified his relationship with JAY Zthe leader of Roc Nation, is still intact.
“All I saw today was sweet and halfway rock…I personally run my own business so I can take risks and grow…we came to this deal together…I have a label deal with roc for my artist and i reformed super linked with them and many other investments with jigga”, he tweeted. “And roc nation is my family don’t mix my atlantic intended message mixed with roc or MMG…they don’t stop anything i do we did about 100m together mike’s and Hov saved my life b4 And put a lot of energy into it, I’m not behind on my favors in life with my people, I’m good.
Two of the ongoing “other investments” mentioned in the lengthy tweets are Dreamchasers, a joint venture with the agency for his imprint where he is currently chairman, and Reform Alliance – a non-profit organization that aims to eliminate unfair laws on penalties in the United States
As of the time indicated, representatives of Roc have not released a statement on this matter.
