Rick Ross Welcomes Wale To Maybach Music With $44,000 Cartier Watch
As reported here recently, Rick Ross has picked up DC rhyme slinger, Wale, signing him to his Maybach Music imprint.
Maybach films captured Ross and Wale hanging out Super Bowl weekend at an appearance for Sean John at Macy's in Arlington, Texas signing autographs for fans.
Rozay talks on camera about the distribution bidding war he has going on, he reveals his new nickname, and is presented with a new Maybach Music "Super Bowl" chain from famous jeweler "TV" Johnny Dang.
Ross also had Dang design a $44,000 black-diamond Cartier watch for Maybach's newest signee as a token of appreciation for joining the "winning team."
"Same music, better energy."
In the video Wale also expressed his reason for switching from Allido/Interscope Records to The Bawse's label, stating that it was for "creative control."
According to Wale his desire to put out records like "Diary" or "Ambitious Girl" from his debut album as singles was not supported by the major label.
"...instead of having somebody say, 'Nah, black people ain't gonna believe that. That's not what they want from you,' I can be like, 'Rozay, my heart is in this record right now.' (He'll say) 'Let's do it.'"
