Maybach Music Group, the hip-hop imprint founded by Rick Ross, has announced a partnership with Warner Bros. Records. Maybach also announced its latest signee, Atlanta rapper Pill.

"This deal with Warner Bros. Records has been a long time in the making and I'm confident we've found the best home for Maybach Music," says Ross in a statement. "Together we're going to make hit records for years to come."

The Warner Bros. partnership follows a month which saw rising hip-hop artists like Wale and Meek Mill sign new deals with Maybach Music. Pill (real name: Tyrone Rivers), who broke out in 2009 with the single "Trap Goin' Ham," is currently prepping his debut album.

Ross is also working on a new full-length, "God Forgives, I Don't," after fourth LP "Teflon Don" produced hit singles like "Aston Martin Music" and "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)" last year. The rapper will join Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Travis Barker on the I Am Still Music tour, which kicks off Mar. 18.
