Iggy Azalea Signs To Island Records, Says She's Still Affiliated With Grand Hustle

UPDATE: On Twitter, Iggy Azalea notes that while she's not contractually bound to T.I. and Grand Hustle, she's still part of Hustle Gang.

Longtime T.I. affiliate Iggy Azalea has been rolling with his Grand Hustle Records for some time. She went as far as reportedly signing with Tip's label after a tenure at Interscope Records, under the praise of label chairman Jimmy Iovine. From early 2012 reports, T.I. was slated to executive produce her debut LP. A press release from Island/Def Jam Records today has revealed that the Australian emcee has reportedly inked a new deal, with Island.

While neither T.I., nor Grand Hustle were mentioned in the press release, Iggy reacted, "I am elated to be a part of the Island Def Jam family!” said Iggy Azalea in a press statement. “After speaking in depth with David [Massey], Steve [Bartles] and Chris [Anokute], it became clear that Island Records was attuned to the type of artist I am. They are a great addition to my UK team, and I couldn't have asked for a more understanding and aspirational group of people to work with."

Iggy's keeping her long-reported album title, The New Classic, which is said to include the single "Work." Her album is planned for 2013 release.

UPDATE: Iggy Azalea took to Twitter to react to the perception of her leaving Grand Hustle Records. She clarified that while she appears to not have a business relationship with T.I.'s label, she plans on further working with them, and will be on the forthcoming Hustle Gang project:

    Iggy needs to leave Grand Hustle. She will never grow as an artist if she stays look at the lack of promotion she getting. Only guy moving units is T.I. and for those who doubt me, do the research!
