(Photos) Hmm…Has Rick Ross Left Def Jam For Epic Records?

When artists sign a record deal, there is a specified number of albums that they’re required to put out to fulfill the contract. This can vary from artist to artist, depending upon various factors – such as whether the label sees the person/group as having longevity or being just a flash in the pan with a hit single or two – among other things. Often times these deals are pretty iron clad, and the only way to get out of them is by spending a pretty large amount of money. So when artists may be ready to leave (especially ones who signed a deal for a large quantity of albums), sometimes they do things like rush and put out multiple albums in a short period of time…and that may be what happened last year with Rick Ross. In 2014, Rozay gave us TWO albums in less than a year’s span, Mastermind and Hood Billionaire. This brought his tally up to 7 with Def Jam, and that quite possibly fulfilled his contract…as he’s currently posting photos with Epic Records boss L.A. Reid on social media, one with a caption that reads:


Hmm! Could Epic be Rozay’s new home? He’ll then share a roster with Future, Travi$ Scott and more. Let us know in the comments if you think that’s a good fit!
