Omarion Says Rick Ross “Could Have Helped More” When He Was Signed To Maybach Music


Omarion is opening up about his time with Maybach Music Group, and it looks like it wasn’t all good.

During a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, B2k member Omarion detailed his brief time on Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group label and says he was dissatisfied with how things were being handled behind the scenes.

He explained,

As far as personally, it’s all good, Rozay is one of the funniest persons, like, to come across. If I see him, salute, but he showed me some things. So, because he showed me things, even though, he could have helped more. He could have lent more of a hand than, you know, what he was maybe portraying to be.”

Omarion continued,

“But I appreciate the experience man, I had so much fun over at Maybach Music and making that music at that time and being able to create a alias Maybach O to feel a part of something that was truly outside of my culture and outside of myself.”

Co-host DJ Envy asked the “Touch” singer how hands-on was Rick Ross with his career while at MMG. Omarion replied,

“Rozay shows up. Rozay was there. But when it wasn’t that time, it wasn’t that time.”

Co-host Charlamagne Tha God then questioned what more could Rick Ross have done to help Omarion. The singer said,

“I would just say one of the tale tells for was one of the last conversations him and I had, when he came out to L.A., I just expressed to him as a businessman I need to prepare myself for my transitions, and respectfully, if there’s something going on with you and Atlantic, just let me know so I can prepare myself.”

Omarion suggested that Ross told him he had his back,

“I was very clear with him with that…And it was like, Maybach Music is no longer a label and I gotta go and actually do the work that was necessary for my journey to figure out where I was, and it wasn’t in a good position. That’s really what I’m talking about. We had a conversation but you didn’t honor that and you didn’t feel like you needed to.”

During this same interview, Omarion opened up about the fallout he had with his former ‘B2K’ group members and the misconceptions about their relationship over the years.

When asked how B2K was able to coexist on tour together despite not seeing eye to eye and having some tension between them, Omarion focused on the concept of brotherhood and how some outside influences caused turmoil within the group. He said,

“Everybody has a different version of  [brotherhood], unfortunately. Because some people actually don’t have siblings, it means different things to different people. I would say in one aspect through our journey, we were put together to be brothers. I don’t think in essence we were. There were a lot of people that made sure that we connected and then disconnected.”

He added,

“It’s almost like we were made to be brothers to be secret enemies.”

The ‘Post To Be’ singer goes on to explain what he believes brotherhood entails.

“I believe in real brotherhood, jealousy doesn’t exist…It never makes you vindictive, it never makes you jealous. It never makes you go past a certain point. With our journey, things have gone way past go.”
