Iggy Azalea can no longer officially call her U.S label home as T.I.’s Grand Hustle; the Aussie rapper is now a part of Island Def Jam. Iggy announced her new U.S. label home via Twitter: “Hey world. I signed to island def jam. Iam now mercury UK/ island def jam USA awesome!!!!”
But just Iggy assures her ties with Grand Hustle aren’t broken; she’ll appear on Grand Hustle’s upcoming Hustle Gang compilation album, proving friendships are thicker than business moves. “No. That doesn’t mean I’m not in hustle gang. Save it. Still in it. Still on the hustle gang album. Friendship doesn’t require contracts,” she said.
The model/rapper is with Mercury Records in the UK, and is prepping her debut LP The New Classic. The first single from the set, “Work,” will be followed by the second offering “Bounce” dropping on May 5, the artwork surfacing today with Iggy in a colorful maxi dress surrounded by blue, the accompanying video recently shot in India.
