Iggy Azalea announced via twitter that she has signed with Island/Def Jam. This is surprising due to her relationship with T.I.’s Grand Hustle. She said that despite the signing, she is still a member of the Grand Hustle team, and will still appear on their upcoming compilation.
Azalea will keep her contract with Mercury in the UK, as the Def Jam deal will cover her US distribution only. According to Iggy, an official press release from Billboard will confirm the signing later today.
