Focusing more on his CEO duties
Other than Rick Ross' two albums, Maybach Music Group only released two others in 2014. Stalley's Ohio and Omarion's Sex Playlist both satisfied fanbases that had waited patiently for new projects, but neither cracked the top 30 on the Hot 200. In the first seven months of 2015 alone, Rozay saw to it that three of MMG's powerhouse artists-- Wale, Meek Mill and Gunplay-- got long-awaited albums on the shelves, even if it meant putting his solo career on hold for the first half of the year. With the exception of the somewhat disappointing Living Legend, the others both went number one.
There's still plenty of work to do, with Omarion and French Montana both with albums in the works (hopefully with 2015 release dates), and the ever-impressive Rockie Fresh still albumless. But whereas it used to seem like Ross only focused on his signees when it was convenient for him to do so, now it's clear that he recognizes the strength of his talented cohorts and places value in their solo projects. If Black Market also goes number one, is there any other rap label that can boast three number one albums in 2015?
