Since banding together earlier this year, the members of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group have shown a tremendous amount of support for one another. With Wale dropping his sophomore album, Ambition, Tuesday (November 1), MMG artists have extended love to their labelmate, even changing all of their Twitter avatars to Wale’s LP cover art. To take things a step further, Meek Mill promised to release his highly anticipated remix of “I’ma Boss” on Tuesday if enough people tweeted about Wale’s album.
“The ’I’ma Boss’ remix: We gonna do a Twitter campaign; you gotta tweet Wale’s album. If we get enough tweets of Wale’s album, we’re gonna drop the remix on ’em,” Meek told MTV News on Friday after performing at the Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia.
“I was working on my verse yesterday in the studio,” Meek teased of the remix, which boasts features from T.I., Lil Wayne and others: “I put Tip’s verse on the beat, we got Khaled in there somewhere, we got Wayne in there, Swizz [Beatz].”
Mill’s original “I’ma Boss” first surfaced toward the end of 2010. It was a slow build, but the Rick Ross-assisted track began to catch fire in May after it was included on MMG’s Self Made Vol. 1 compilation. The track went on to become one of the hottest rap songs of the summer, and a remix was in order.
In an August interview with Vibe, Meek said he’d hold the release of the record so he could get a verse from T.I., who was incarcerated at the time. “If I hold the ’I’ma Boss’ remix long enough, I might throw Tip on that — have him get out to the hottest song of the year,” he said. “He ain’t have no problem looking out for me, and I don’t have no problem doing it for him.”
