Although he’s currently involved in ongoing legal battles with LMFAO and the original Rick Ross, he’s preparing to launch his new album Mastermind (which is being mixed by Diddy), and continues to build his Maybach Music Group empire, which is home to Meek Mill, Wale, Omarion, Gunplay, Wale, Triple C’s, Masspike Miles, Magazeen, Teedra Moses, Stalley, DJ Scream, French Montana, Fat Trel and Rockie Fresh.
