Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group has signed Slim Jesus to the label for an estimated 2.3 million dollars.
Slim Jesus is rapper from Hamilton, Ohio. He became popular in September 2015, receiving widespread attention from his “Drill Time” music video, uploaded to YouTube.
Maybach Music Group (MMG) is a record label imprint founded by American rapper Rick Ross. The label is home to artists such as Ross himself, Wale, Meek Mill, French Montana, Omarion and Gunplay among others.
Maybach A&R Bruce Lane also confirmed that he believes Slim Jesus is the future.
“The future of white people co-opting black culture for profit.”
Maybach CEO Rick Ross stated:
“If there’s one thing that scares white people, it’s black people with guns, but white people love guns and if they see a white kid holding a gun, that’s something they’re comfortable with.
Smith and Wesson and Sturm, Ruger, and Co. are already in a bidding war over sponsorship. The first Slim Jesus album “Second Amendment” is scheduled for release in next 3 months.
