Several campaigns are already underway in support of MAYbach Music Month. The group has teamed up with Complex Magazine to release ten customized bikes from Mixie Bike through Complex.com.
Meek Mill has been selected as one of the newest faces of DrJays.com’s “Summer Sensations” summer fashion campaign. The promotion, which highlights select new artists positioned next to “heat up” the music industry, will run June through August across DrJays.com and DrJays.com Live. With 2.5 million visitors a month, DrJays.com is the leading online retailer of street fashion with previous campaign alumni including Nicki Minaj, Yelawolf, Waka Flocka Flame and Jeremih.
Elsewhere, other contests revolving around the album’s resonating theme of being “Self Made” are planned during MAYbach Music Month. Rick Ross and the non-profit organization 100 Urban Entrepreneurs have teamed up to give away $10,000-grants to help minorities start their own businesses.
And later this month, Wale will launch a national Facebook college contest where students will be encouraged to create a “College Events Page” promoting being Self Made. The students in each market with the most subscribers of fellow students to their event page will win a MMG listening event at their school hosted by one of the Maybach Music group members.
Rick Ross will head to Las Vegas on May 7th to bring out world-champion boxer Manny Pacquiao in his highly publicized bout with “Sugar” Shane Mosley. The epitome of building from the ground up, Pacquiao and his training staff will don limited edition Maybach Music t-shirts available here.
On Wednesday, May 25th fans can catch Rick Ross, Wale, Pill and Meek Mill perform “Tupac Back” and “Play Your Part” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
