Rick Ross leaves his label Epic Records

American rapper Rick Ross has announced his departure from his recording label of more than 10 years, Epic Records.

In an interview with HotNewHipHop, Ross revealed that he’s been offered lucrative deals with a number of labels, including his prior home Def Jam.

He said he is in no rush to partner with a label just yet and enjoying his newfound freedom, which he earned through renegotiations with his former partners.

“It ain’t a different situation for me cause I already owned all my shit,” Before I even made it to my last albums, I had damn near owned everything that I could own, other than a certain distribution percentage. Once you become successful — regardless of what you signed at first — you just come sit at the table like a man.”
