With Summer Jam just days away, Wale stopped by NYC a few days early to connect with the Hot 97 morning crew to discuss a bevy of topics. Among them was his situation with Tiara Thomas, the songstress that assisted him on “Bad.”
The MMG lyricist dropped a bomb when he revealed that he no longer has a working relationship with Thomas, and that she actually signed with someone else, despite working with him for the past two years.
“I was a casualty of the game,” Wale said. “I don’t believe in paperwork too soon, because I like to show and prove what I can do.”
According to the DMV local, Thomas found her new situation from recording with him. He does, however, wish the Indianapolis native the best in her career.
“She did what she felt like was to her best interest, and I guess that’s what all people going to do.”
See Wale speak more on his forthcoming album The Gifted, what fans can expect from his Summer Jam performance, and more below. Skip to the 13:00 mark to hear the segment on Thomas.
