With all the buzz surrounding Iggy Azalea, labels are clamoring to sign the Aussie rap sensation. But she may have already found a home at Def Jam.
The 21-year-old rapper dined with the Def Jam team including signee Rihanna last night in Los Angeles. “Had the pleasure of meeting rihanna at dinner tonight,” she tweeted. “Had a really fun dinner with all the def jam staff!!! #rolexcrew.”
Bu Thiam, VP of A&R for Def Jam, fueled speculation that the blonde bombshell was joining his all-star roster, which includes Kanye West, Rick Ross, and Nas. “Just spoke to the homie @IGGYAZALEA and all ima say is #History,” he wrote.
If that wasn’t enough, Iggy replied “Yup!!!” to a Def Jam A&R staffer who wrote, “@IGGYAZALEA dope meeting you tonight.. Cant wait til your officially part of the team.”
Iggy has become an online phenomenon with her mixtape Ignorant Art and videos for “Pu$$y,” “My World,” and her latest, “The Last Song.”
I'm so here for her being signed!!! But I just want her to be with a label that will promote and give her all the help and attention she needs!
