Another Azalea Gets A Record Deal

Vulture notices: ‘Iggy Azalea (pictured, with Rye Rye and Domnique Young Unique), the other rising female rapper with a name related to the genus Rhododendron, made it official with Interscope last Friday. (Azealia Banks, you may remember, signed with Universal a week before that.) The label says Iggy’s first album, “The New Classic,” will be out sometime in June 2012, leaving you a full six months to decide whether in fact Azelea is the right up-and-coming flower-rapper for your purposes. Or you can go the patriotic route, or stick with the Minnie Mouse ears. Collect them all.’
