Iggy Azalea Signs To TI’s ‘Grand Hustle’

Published: Friday 2nd Mar 2012 by David

From Atlanta to Australia, there are very few who haven’t come across Rap belle Iggy Azalea.

Rising to fame last summer with the viral hit ‘PUY‘, the last few months have seen the MC go from strength to strength, singing with Interscope back in January and making XXL‘s 2012 Freshman cover earlier this week.

Today, in what we’d say is phenomenal news, she has signed to TI’s ‘Grand Hustle’ label, in a further bid to raise her US profile.

Clearly, Young Money‘s success is serving as a precedent for many an aspiring Rap mogul.

Hoping to replicate Wayne’s success with Nicki Minaj, only time will tell how  TI’s deal with Azalea will benefit her in the long run.

Because,  as much as we commend the signing, we’re not sure why she needed to join Grand Hustle after securing a deal with Interscope, who we assume will have final say on any major decisions pertaining her career.

On the other hand, this ‘double deal’ makes complete sense if Iggy is  to become a Rap act with a Pop star’s budget, a la Drake.

Either way, here’s to her continued success and a debut worthy of her enormous hype.

    Love the f*** out of Iggy, there’s room for more than one rap female in the game. The sad thing though is I wonder whether TI will really support Iggy.

    The thing that makes Nicki unique among modern female rappers is she does have the full support of her management. They spend money on her, they encourage her, they give her so much access and etc. Other rappers, sadly, introduce a female act, get on one song with her and then just stop caring and left her career wither. (see Ludacris and P.Diddy).

    Iggy needs a team that will really help her shoot for infamy instead of just make 1 hit/1 album and peace out on her. HOPEFULLY TI can do that.

    Iggy is my female rap artist. I will support her but i hope she doesn’t turn into a gimmick cause I would be out. Go iggy please give us some sick videos and swag. niki has “it all” already. she forgot about her initial fanbase and who she really is. now i don’t know who niki is. either she was fake before her deal or fake after but she has changed. sad
