2012 is wasting no time trying to one-up 2011 with the major label signings of buzzing artists. Last year, we saw Kreayshawn make $1 million in one of the biggest busts of a deal for a label, then A$AP Rocky cashed in a rumored $3 million from RCA. (He’s actually been one of the more consistent rappers out there as of late, though.)
Then, last week, it was rumored that Australia native Iggy Azalea had landed a deal at Def Jam, which was pretty much confirmed by her tweets, as well as those of A&Rs at the label. Now we have word from Harlem’s own Azealia Banks that she just inked a deal with Universal Music!
Check out the tweets below, and congratulations to Ms. Banks, a.k.a. Kanye’s Twitter pal
