Wale's decision to not follow through with a performance commitment is now catching up to him months later.

As reported, the rapper was slated to perform in New York City this summer and was paid in full prior to the event. However, despite reportedly receiving the $25,000 paycheck, Wale was a no-show.

Upfront and Personal Global, the promotion companies who filed the lawsuit, are claiming that they have an alleged signed contract between the involved parties as well as receipts showing they sent two wire transfers for $12.5K to the rapper.

In their claim, the rapper did not uphold his end of the bargain nor did he respond to their requests for a refund, forcing them to take the situation to court.

The promoters are suing the rapper for a refund as well as interest.

If their claims prove to be true, it looks like Wale will have no choice but to pay up.
