Maybach Music Group has a new member. Isa Muhammad first came to Rick Ross’s attention when he stopped him in the streets of Venice, California and rapped for him in June. Rozay put the video on Snapchat and it’s gone on to pick up more nearly 2m views online since that day. Muhammad, who was homeless a few years ago, has been putting out music over the summer and yesterday, July 28, it was officially announced that he has signed with MMG.
“This was something that I wasn’t expecting,” Ross said of the new signing in a press release. “This kid gave me his heart when he was spitting and the internet got a hold of the video I put up on my snapchat. I wanted to give an opportunity for someone else to be put on – I know so many people in his same position. MMG is about giving back and pushing the culture forward by finding new and real talent. Isa Muhammad will reflect quality rap music and MMG is going to make sure of that.” Check out Muhammad’s “signing day” Instagram post below, as well as his latest track “Inglewood’s Sunshine.”
