Wale and Def Jam

In an interview on BET’s Monique Show in 2010, Wale revealed that he nearly inked with Def Jam. “I met Jay-Z three years ago when he was at Def Jam," Wale explained. "I almost had a situation there, but he left.” Wale signed with Allido and Interscope instead, before moving on to Maybach Music Group.
