Sources reveal that Rick Ross has officially signed rapper Wale to his Maybach Music group label. It's being said that the D.C. rapper ditched his deal at Interscope to join the Bawse and Triple C's at Def Jam.

While Wale has yet to speak about his new deal, Rick Ross revealed that he's working on not only signing Wale but, boasts of signing rapper Philly native Meek Mill as well, Ross said We just brought Jah Cure to the team. That's one of the biggest reggae superstars in the game. We just did a deal with that. Look for that first quarter. I'm talking to artist out of Philly that I think is the future of Philly. Meek Millz, I'm talking to him right now about Maybach Music. As well as I'm talking to Wale. Wale is a hustler. I feel he's one record away from being the next n*gga,” The Husky Don forecasted. “He's just a naturally fly n*gga. Slick talking n*gga. That's right up my alley. I just think that comradery, riding with Rozay; it'll mean that much more. I feel he's one record away. As well as Meek Millz.”

On his twitter page Wale also spoke on his new moves with Ross telling fans, “Maybach Music…new year, new sounds, new deal, same Olubawale. 2011 is gonna be beautiful, glory be to God.”
