Omarion is the newest signee of MMG, and in a recent interview he talks about how it came together and peoples' perception of him.
On "Maybach O":
"Yeah, Maybach O. That’s the new movement, man. I’m so excited. I can’t even express, you know, how excited I am, you know what I mean? And just how this whole thing came along, man, it’s just…It’s been a blessing. There’s a difference between your time and when you want to do things and God’s time, you know what I mean? And this right here man, it’s been God’s time, man. I saw Ross in North Carolina, you know, and I was telling him like [...] 'Yo, I’m ‘bout to…you know, I need you on these records, man, you know what I’m sayin’? I’m ‘bout to do this ill so and so with so and so.' And he was like 'Man, we need to have a conversation before that.' And we sat down and he said some real important things to me that not even executives have said to me, you know what I mean? He showed that love and he showed that respect and he was like 'I believe in you,' you know what I mean? I can’t even count to you how many times on my hand in my whole career that I’ve actually had people tell me that."
On other peoples' perception of Omarion:
"They ask me if I still dance, you know what I mean? Which is crazy. They ask me if I still sings, which is crazy, you know what I mean? Of course, I hear about the babies and the ladies and, you know what I mean, a whole slew of other things that people who sit behind a computer do, you know what I mean? But, I think that we’re in a great time in music right now, you know. I think twitter is also, you know – and Instagram and Facebook – is giving the fans more insight, you know, into who the real person is. That’s why I said it’s the most interesting time in my career because it’s like, who has seen, you know, young men start so young. Like, there’s literally only two awards that I don’t’ have and that’s a VMA and a Grammy, you know what I mean? And it’s like, I have to get to that place, you know what I mean? Like I’ve done so much, you know what I mean? So, now it’s time to get the VMA."
