Def Jam president Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has announced the signing of Miami rapper Rick Ross, whose single “Hustlin” has generated a nationwide buzz on hip-hop airwaves.

Ross, who has repped the Miami underground scene since the late 1990s, endured short-lived stints on Suave House and Slip-N-Slide Records before recently becoming a free agent. Rumors of bidding wars began circulating in early January, including talks with Atlantic Recordings, Cash Money Records, and Bad Boy Entertainment. Last year when Young Jeezy stepped away from the Atlanta group Boyz N Da Hood, Ross was considered his potential replacement after appearing on their 2005 self-titled album, but the deal never came to fruition.

"I sat down with a lot of people and ultimately [Def Jam] came with the best situation," Ross explained. "I feel comfortable with their system. It's obvious they know what they're doing. We wanna win big. They wanna win big. So we knocked it out.”

Ross’s debut album, “Career Criminal,” is already scheduled to hit stores by summer, and is set to feature a vocal appearance by Jay-Z.

Slip-N-Slide Inks Multi-Million Dollar Deal With Def Jam

Miami-based record label Slip-N-Slide Records has inked a multi-million dollar deal with Def Jam, headed by rapper/mogul Shawn "Jay-Z"" Carter.

While Trina, Trick Daddy and Ft. Meyers rapper Plies will remain signed as Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic artists, newcomers Rick Ross, of Miami, and Citty, of Atlanta, will record under the new Slip-N-Slide/Def Jam imprint, where a new roster of talent will be developed.

"We met with every major label head across the country, but the level of respect that Def Jam showed for Slip-N-Slide was priceless," said Slip-N-Slide President Ted "Touche" Lucas. "Jay-Z saw Slip-N-Slide's vision and was willing to do everything in his power to make that vision a reality."

Founded by Lucas in 1993, Slip-N-Slide has sold over 8 million records, mostly powered by hits from Trick Daddy and Trina.

Lucas said he plans to expand the label's presence beyond Florida under the new venture and "form a cartel of new artists from other regions."

Rick Ross' debut album, Career Criminal, is slated for a summer release, while Citty's album, Da Cookie Man, is due before the end of the year.

"We have very high expectations for Rick Ross, Plies and Citty. We're going to have a big year," Lucas predicted.
