Rapper Meek Mill is expanding his growing empire. Meek announced that he has signed a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation to launch his Dream Chasers imprint.
The deal was sealed yesterday in NYC at a press conference. Meek will serve as president of Dream Chasers records while overseeing the label’s day to day operation. Meek launched Dream Chasers in 2012, but hasn’t really released much music through the imprint. This deal will allow the label to be able to make some power moves.
Speaking of the deal, Meek revealed that he will create a new recording studio for his artists to use.
Also, he added:
“Coming out of prison, I felt I had a responsibility to lead the culture as much as I can. Jay-Z and others that came before me were like the snow plow that made it easier for me and others. I want to be the snow plow of the next generation, taking on those responsibilities, trying to move forward and push the culture forward.”
“Everything he has done leading up to this point shows he is ready to [lead] the next generation. We look at the big picture — this is way beyond signing artists and having hot records.”
Meek will continue to release music under his current Atlantic/Maybach Music Group deal
