Is Iggy Azalea Signing to Def Jam?
Just before Christmas, we spoke with Australian MC Iggy Azalea about her nomination for XXL’s 2012 Freshmen Class. During our conversation, she mentioned signing her deal towards the top of 2012. In a report by XXL, it sounds as though Azalea will be headed to Hip-Hop’s Mecca, Def Jam. Here’s her tweet from last night’s dinner, which followed a tweet from Def Jam VP and Akon’s brother, Bu Thiam.
Had the pleasure of meeting rihanna at dinner tonight… Had a really fun dinner with all the def jam staff!!!
It sounds like Azalea is on her way to becoming the newest recruit within the hallowed halls of Def Jam. This would be a great start to the new year for Azalea, who mentioned a tour and album as some things to come at the top of this new year.
She was also one of the subjects in a column discussing the effects of white female MC’s have on the masculinity of Hip-Hop. The piece, by our contributing writer D.L. Chandler, heavily challenged a NY Times story by Touré. Read the piece, here.
