Is Iggy Azalea Signing to Def Jam?

Iggy Azalea

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 like her, but no Def Jam :( I don’t want her collabing with Rihanna or Jay Z. Oh well, at least it is not Young Money.

    @elle,

    She’s a new artist, she needs to get signed to a big label. If she was established then that would be a different story

    Happy for her cause i think she’s dope. I hope Def Jam support her and help her get better. When they signed N-dubz they didnt support them and then they lefted the label.
    2012 big year for her. Iggy and Nitty Scott giving Nicki some REAL competition.

    She has something and is fresh but her pussy video was weird. It said drugs on the shirts and the lil boy had a wack shirt on for a child.

    I guess, shes illuminati.

    YES! THAT WOULD BE A BIG MOVE! A song with Rihanna would be epic. Def Jam would point her in the right direction.

  15. hate revolver

    she’s wack. i don’t by her hype. she dont’ know shit about hip hop. just cause u are on youtube, you have to get signed is just getting riduculous. hip hop is becoming a circus because everyone thinks they can rhymes. back in the day, you had to prove you could rhyme and thy weren’t giving away deals like that. atleast eminem and kid rock paid their dues. kreayshawn and v nasty are just exploiting hiphop.

    That would be good for her. She’s only has a few good songs, but maybe she just needs some direction.
