Rick Ross launched his career on Def Jam and remained with the label for many years, but according to him, the label is having issues.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone to promote his and Meek Mill’s upcoming joint album, Rozay was asked about whether he would get involved in a new Def Jam: Fight for NY game if one were ever to materialize.

“I might have to do it. But Def Jam is damn near outta business, so it’ll have to be Maybach Music,” Ross quipped. “That was a cool-ass game, yo!”

Rick Ross’ last release on Def Jam was 2015’s Black Market, after which he took his talents to Epic Records under the L.A. Reid regime. But following the release of 2021’s Richer Than I Ever Been, Rozay fulfilled his contract with Epic and decided to become a free agent.

Rozay and Meek drop their joint album Too Good To Be True on November 10, which will be distributed through Maybach Music Group and Apple veteran Larry Jackson’s Gamma media company.

The dynamic duo stopped by Complex‘s “GOAT Talk” this week in advance of the project’s release. The conceit of the program is that guests name their picks for the all-time great in a variety of categories. But it was one topic in particular that caught fans’ fancy – where they seemingly hinted at a Drake feature on the album.

When asked to reveal what they believe to be the greatest of all-time Drizzy feature, both Ross and Mill were quick to his praises, but also allude to a future collaboration.

“Meek Milly and Rozay, we fucking with the boy heavily. Listen out for it on some of the new shit that’s coming out very soon, you hear?” Meek said, with Ross adding, “You better believe it.”

Then they answered the feature question at hand, and both had the same pick. “I’m gonna say right off the top, ‘Stay Schemin,” said Ross, referencing his 2012 track with Drizzy and French Montana.

“‘Stay Schemin’ too, because I was a part of that,” added Meek. “I just had got my Ghost that day to pull up on you [Rick Ross] and Drake. I didn’t really know Drake. I probably had met him once or twice.”
