Isa Muhammad, who is a former homeless rapper, is the newest signee to Rick Ross label Maybach Music Group, MMG.
Rick Rozay was reportedly very impressed with the California native during an impromptu freestyle session. The video posted on YouTube has since garnered 1.8 million views and given rave reviews by commenters.
“This was something that I wasn’t expecting,” Rick Ross said 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.”
Rick Ross is also getting some praise from other rappers inside his circle for giving Muhammad the opportunity to shine. We are excited to hear some new music from the rapper who still never gave up on his dream despite being homeless.
“Just because I got a record deal dosent mean I’m instantly rich. Rozay is giving a Ni**a an opportunity, its up to me to seize it,” Isa Muhammad said on Twitter.
Seems Isa already has a new single out title “Chemtrails & Muslim Wars” where he raps about his journey.
“Ross saw Isa Muhammad and he saw a vision,” MMG President Kendell “Young Sav” Freeman said. “Isa was raw, authentic, and organically talented.”
