Omarion Speaks On Leaving Maybach Music, Wishes Rick Ross Would Have Been More Supportive



Omarion speaks on his relationship with Rick Ross and the reason he left Maybach Music Group with The Breakfast Club. He signed with MMG in May of 2012. He says he has nothing but love for Rick Ross but wishes he had supported him more.

“I was under the impression at the time of Maybach Music’s inception, you know, what it is that I contributed to his business. And I feel like on that level he respects me, you know he has to respect me.”

“But as far as personally, it’s all good, Rozay is one of the funniest persons to come across. So if I see him, salute, you know what I mean? But he showed me some things so because he showed me things, even though, he could have helped more.”

“He could have lent more of a hand and what he was maybe portraying to be. But I appreciate the experience man, I had so much fun over at Maybach Music and making that music at that time and being able to create a alias Maybach O to feel a part of something that was truly outside of my culture and outside of myself.”

“Rozay shows up. Rozay was there … when it was that time,” Omarion said. “But when it wasn’t that time, it wasn’t that time … I would just say one of the tell tells for was one of the last conversations him and I had, when he came out to L.A., I just expressed to him as a businessman I need to prepare myself for my transitions, and respectfully if there’s something going on with you and Atlantic, just let me know so I can prepare myself.”


“I was very clear with him with that, and Maybach Music is no longer a label and I gotta go and actually do the work that was necessary for my journey to figure out where I was, and it wasn’t in a good position. That’s really what I’m talking about, we had a conversation but you didn’t honor that. You didn’t feel you needed to.”

Rick Ross announced Omarion’s signing during a Maybach Music press conference on May 2, 2012, dubbing the singer “Maybach O.”
