'Jay Could Make It Up To Me' – ¡MAYDAY!'s Wrekonize Speaks On Missed Deal With Jay-Z And Roc-A-Fella Records

Aug 8 2012

As it turns out, Lil Wayne isn’t the only high-profile rap star that ¡MAYDAY! has crossed paths with.

On the eve of the release for Thrift Store Halos, greatmathias.blogspot.com published a brand new interview with ¡MAYDAY!’s own Wrekonize regarding his work on Take Me To Your Leader, the Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour, and the possibility of a solo album.

When asked about his early years on the battle circuit for MTV, Wrek recalled winning a prize that would have paired him up with Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella Records:

It was supposed to be a single deal. That was never honored. I never spoke to Dame or Jay after that. My thoughts then, along with my manager at the time, were if they didn’t want to work with me, why hunt them down and waste my time. They also had a gang load of artists signed at the time so it seemed like I would be sure to get lost in the shuffle either way. Jay could make it up to me by jumping on a ¡MAYDAY! track though. Haha.”

There’s no telling what could have been had Wrekonize inked the deal with Hov, but as always, everything happens for a reason and now Miami’s own Wrek has the support of Strangers everywhere.
