Wale Explains His Departure From JAY-Z's Roc Nation in 2014

Wale has revealed the reason behind his departure from JAY-Z‘s Roc Nation in 2014.

In a recent episode of Drink Champs, the Folarin 2 artist explained that he “really had a meltdown” while he was opening for J. Cole‘s “What Dreams May Come True” in 2013. “I was in the Hov cypher for a long time, and there was a time that I was on tour with J. Cole and at this point, I was opening for him,” Wale shared. “And somebody in my circle was like, ‘You’re losing like, five grand every time you go on stage. You’re losing money.’ I couldn’t make sense of it. I just really had a meltdown. And I remember, I just quit the tour. It’s been all love since.”

He continued, “I learned a lot from them. And JAY is still my idol.” Wale’s double downed on his admiration for Hov in a series of tweet regarding the Roc Nation head’s 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction over the weekend, tweeting, “almost shed that lil water out my eyes last night for S. Carter” and “We need to soak up more game from the OGs in Hiphop .. this genre has to be protected ..”
