Australian hip-hop sensation Iggy Azalea has come forward to unveil her new romance with fellow rap newcomer A$AP Rocky and just how serious their relationship currently is.
Addressing her new A$AP tattoo, Iggy spilled the beans on their hook-up.
“Ugh, it’s hard to say without getting myself in trouble. [Laughs],” she said when asked about the tat. “I don’t know how to put it. It’s like… I… I don’t know… I love him and that’s all there is to it. We have our own thing going on and I’m not the only one that [got the tattoos]. I’ll tell you that. [Laughs] I’m just the only one with it on my fingers! [Do I love the movement or Rocky?] It’s not the movement. I’ll tell you that. [Am I single?] I’d have to say that I’m taken.” (VIBE)
Over the past few days, speculation on Iggy signing to Def Jam has developed.
Iggy Azalea has been buzzing since she released her Ignorant Art mixtape, and its accompanying videos, and now it looks like the 21-year-old, Australia-born rapper might be close to inking a new deal with Def Jam. Iggy met with the Def Jam team, including Rihanna, in Los Angeles this week and all parties seemed to be pleased with the results. (RapFix)
A Def Jam music executive has also hinted at something stirring up between the label and Iggy.
When we first heard of Iggy Azalea, we had the suspicion that she’d blow up quickly. Since then, it has become increasingly clear that the Australian born rapper has too much flare to remain unsigned for long. It looks like the doors are opening up and Iggy is feeling out her options. A tweet from the Bu Thiam, music executive at Def Jam, confirms that Iggy has been in talks with the legendary label. “Just spoke to the homie @IGGYAZALEA and all ima say is #History” (Complex)
This was later met by a reply from Iggy who also confirmed the meeting.
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.” (Rap-Up)
