Ross appeared to announce several new ventures including a big and tall line with Swizz Beatz and Reebok.

Omarion’s signing to Maybach Music Group.
CEO of Recorded Music for Warner Bros. Lyor Cohen took the podium to introduce Ross, marking the first time that he’s publicly introduced an artist or label since Roc-A-Fella Records 18 years ago.
Swizz Beatz took the podium to announce a partnership with Rick Ross for Reebok to release a big and tall clothing line.
“He’s going to lead the big and tall movement,” said Swizz. “There’s a limit with clothes that stops at a certain point. With Ross, everything has to be custom made. [...] I felt that instead of just doing a regular sneaker, we give Ross his own big and tall line.”
Diddy was next to take the stage, praising Ross’ abilities and thanking him for promoting Ciroc.
Rick Ross then brought out Omarion and announced him as the latest signing to Maybach Music Group.
“A lot of people have been wondering what’s up with Omarion? Is his career over?” said Omarion. “I’ve never been a fan of popular opinion, but from now on, when you see me, understand that it’s Maybach Music.”
After French Montana announced the release date for his debut Excuse My French (July 17th), and that the first single will feature Rick Ross, Drake and Lil Wayne, Omarion played his new single “Let’s Talk” that samples The Notorious B.I.G.
