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.”
Let’s pretend Bee’s career was like banking. Everything we’ve watched Bee do over the years has been like a deposit into a bank account. When she has moments where things don’t pan out exactly the way she wants or a certain single doesn’t meet certain expectations, she’s good. All the deposits over the years ensured that if “the check was short this week”, she was still comfortable. Basing a career on singles and chasing cookie cutter radio formulas is like living check to check. You ain’t worth **** but what’s going on right now. There’s nothing memorable. There’s nothing iconic. 18 years of healthy deposits. And now she’s sitting back CHILLING.
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!
