After recent speculation about his involvement and relationship with Maybach Music Group, Chicago’s Rockie Fresh has officially signed with the growing collective housed by Warner Bros. Music and under Rick Ross.
After posting some speculative pictures on Instagram last night, Rick Ross tweeted, “Everyone welcome @RockieFresh to the Maybach Music Group Family!!!”
Twenty-one-year-old Rockie Fresh later chimed in on Twitter as well, saying, “Salute to @RickyRozay for seeing my vision. We #RichForever #MMG.”
Rockie Fresh’s most recent release, Driving 88, was well-received by critics and fans alike, and he recently announced on MTV News last month that he is currently at work on his new mixtape, Electric Highway.
“I always want to do original music even if it’s a mixtape, so it’s definitely a free album, but all of the records are going to be original,” he told MTV. “With me getting older and seeing different parts of the world, my content is always going to be evolving, so this is going to be the peak of Rockie Fresh. Out of all of the stuff that I’ve done, I think this is going to be my best work and I’m really looking forward to dropping it.”
