“His album is coming,” Ross told MTV News in a statement on July 12. “We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money,’ and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”

Mill, who made his album debut with 2012's "Dreams and Nightmares," was handed a three to six month jail sentence on Friday (July 11) for violating his probation on a 2009 drug and gun case. Earlier in the week, the Philadelphia rapper announced that “Dreams Are Worth More Than Money” would be released in September.

Ross says he’ll continue to support Mill through his ongoing legal troubles. 

“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported,” he told MTV. "With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad."
