Wale - Wale Parts Ways With Roc Nation

Rapper Wale has parted ways with his longtime management company, Jay Z's Roc Nation.

The Pretty Girls hitmaker has been signed to the hip-hop mogul's company since 2009, but Wale has amicably split from his management team, according to Xxl.

Wale has already signed on with 77 Management Group, a company that also represents American basketball star LeBron James.

In a statement, 77 Management Group bosses write, "Wale's growth and maturity is clear, as he continues work on his best project to date. Its rollout has a lot to do with his new management, who have only been associated with the biggest and best brands in the world."

While Wale has yet to reveal the reasoning behind the movie, speculation has surfaced that his split from Roc Nation was connected to a purported feud with another client of the company, rapper Meek Mill.

Last month (Jul14), Wale brushed off a Twitter.com attack from his Maybach Music Group label mate after he was accused of failing to support Mill's new album.
