"That's the new deal I put together," he told Life+Times. "Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself.

"And my manager - he's just like me, we've been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level."

Meek Mill was recently named the seventh 'Hottest MC' by MTV, just below the likes of Jay-Z and Lil Wayne.

He is set to release his debut studio LP Dreams & Nightmares through Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group.

He added: "I think it's going to take me to the next level. I've got Warner Bros behind me, Maybach Music Group, and Roc Nation; some of the most powerful people in the game.

"That's like 80% of the game right there. You know, Ca$h Money, they like family. So it's like you've got everyone on your team at one time, and it feels good to have all that behind you at once. It's like a force that can't be stopped."

Meek Mill released his debut single 'Tupac Back' last year, which also featured Rick Ross.
