L.A. Reid and Rick Ross

Rick Ross‘ 8th solo album, entitled Black Market which arrives in December will be his final album on Def Jam Recordings. He fulfilled his contractual obligations with the prominently record company. Today, Ross premiered his new single, “Sorry” featuring Chris Brown on New York‘s Power 105.1‘s The Breakfast Club.

The track serves as the lead single off his forthcoming offering. Black Market is the follow-up to 2014’s Mastermind and Hood Billionaire. Ross also dropped a mixtape called Black Dollar last month.

The platinum recording artist and record executive is now in the middle of renegotiating a new record partnership. An artist of Ross status is not looking for a record deal. He will most likely inked a partnership wherever he end up at.

Last week, we spotted Ross meeting with Epic Record‘s head honcho/Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid. Epic Records is a division of Sony Music Entertainment. Yesterday Monday (October 6), Ross was spotted at Jay Z‘s Roc Nation office in Manhattan.

He is still taking meetings and renegotiating. Nothing has been finalized yet. Stay tuned to as this story develops.
