American rappers, Jay-Z and Meek Mill are now officially in business together as the two signed a deal to marry their record labels together.
Meek Mill heads the Dream Chasers record label which will now come under the Roc Nation umbrella.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Meek Mill mused that the “extra seven years” since he initially got into business have given him a fresh perspective and a time to “grow in business, period.”
“I think the time is now,” Meek says. “I’m 32 years old, I’m in a nice spot in the music business and I think it’s time for me to focus on growing artists because that’s what I love to do. I love to spend time on helping artists grow, and I think it’s time for me to dive in, business-wise.”
Meek Mill will head the Dream Chasers arm of Roc Nation and this will involve him operating a recording studio for the label’s artists.
Jay-Z on his part is also excited about the venture and he said: “The overall and overarching view is for us to boss up and do things together and pull each other up and get control of the things that we produce.”
This wasn’t the only piece of good news that came Meek Mill’s way as a Pennsylvania appeals court has overturned the rapper Meek Mill’s conviction in a drug and gun case that has kept the rapper on probation for a decade.
This means Meek Mill is now a free man.
Speaking on this, the rapper was obviously overjoyed, “The past 11 years have been mentally and emotionally challenging, but I’m ecstatic that justice prevailed,” he said.
“Unfortunately, millions of people are dealing with similar issues in our country and don’t have the resources to fight back like I did. We need to continue supporting them.”
Congratulations on all fronts to Meek Mill.
