Miami¬† rapper¬†Rick Ross has fulfilled his contractual obligations with Def Jam as a solo artist after he dropped Teflon Don.¬†In 2006, Ross’ signed a $1 million¬†four album deal with Def Jam.¬†After signing¬†to the label, Ross released four gold albums, Port Of Miami, Trilla, Deeper Than Rap and Teflon Don. From what I am hearing,¬†Ross is¬†in the process of signing¬†to Interscope¬†Records (the former home of 50 Cent and G-Unit) with his new manager Diddy.¬†The main reason why Ross is leaving Def Jam is because¬†50 Cent’s manager Chris Lighty¬†is coming to Def¬†Jam. Yes, I¬†perviously¬†reported that L.A. Reid was fired from Def¬†Jam and Chris Lighty¬†will be¬†replacing him.¬†Not only does¬†Chris Lighty¬† manage 50 Cent, he¬† also¬†runs and owns Violator Management.

I don’t see how Chris Lighty¬†going¬† run his own company Violator Management and Def Jam. Running two major companies, I think there will be¬†some conflicts. This is a great look for Rick Ross career. He’s on the same label as his manager, G-Unit are no longer¬†signed to¬†Interscope, and¬†I think Ross will become a priority over at Interscope.
