Iggy Azalea, who in early November announced she’d “officially unsigned” with Island Records, has via a number of tweets announced a new record deal worth US$2.7 million (A$3,6 million).

It apparently involves a custom label and allows her to be totally independent – something which she stressed she wanted when she parted ways with Island.

“Proud to say I literally just signed my new deal/partnership!,” she tweeted.

“2.7mil, can sign others, own my masters + 100% independent – I’m feeling like such a bossy grown ass bitch today! Time to get back to ME. I’m so grateful & excited…”

According to one tweet, “I OWN MY OWN MASTERSSSSS bitchhhhhhhhh turn the fuck up!”

An official announcement follows this week, the Australian-born rapper said.

Azalea is moving to Atlanta to finish off some recording, with new music expected in early 2019.

She earlier told fans, “I am nowhere near ready direction wise etc with the stuff I’ve been working on and I don’t wanna jump the gun and have some messy era aesthetically.

“I’m aiming to be ready to share new music early next year!”

The parting from Island after six months capped off a strange 2018 for the rapper, which included her being put in a facility in Arizona by her management concerned over her mental health, lacklustre response to two singles, and a North American tour cancelled by Live Nation speculatively due to low ticket sales.

After her Island split, the 26-year old received a proposal by a US porn company Bang Bros.

The offer went, “You should sign with us. “Ass Parade would never be the same.”

Azalea responded: “Disgusting on so many level. It’s creepy and fake pimp vibes to even approach women ’bout this sorta shit unsolicited.”

Last week, Azalea made more news for wrong reasons when she crossed paths with 15-year old rapper Bhad Bhabie (Danielle Bregoli) at Cardi B’s fashion label launch in Hollywood.

The two had thrown shade at each other on social media days before when Iggy asked on Instagram if a friend was attending a show on the teen’s upcoming tour.

Bharbie sniffed: “U should come. Would be a good memory for u of what a sold-out show looks like,” citing Azalea’s cancelled tour.

After the teenager drenched half of Azalea’s locks, the rapper called security and had her removed.

She said she was too “grown up” to worry about a teenager wanting to “make name for herself acting a d– fool on television and online.”

She continued: “I came to get a check. I left with a check. You left with your bag stuffed over there. And you look silly.

“I’m not going to be scrambling around on the floor for a 15-year-old girl on the Internet.”

Iggy Azalea’s pink hair was seemingly short-lived since the “Kream” rapper is back to her natural blonde look. Iggy’s last trio of Instagram posts shows off her latest hairstyle with some cute photos of her hanging out, rocking her FashionNova looks, as expected. It’s safe to say the Australian rapper has been on a new wave lately since she recently revealed that she’s officially unsigned, and very happy about it.

If you can remember, earlier in the year Iggy was having a hard time with her label and the freedom of creativity when it came to her videos and musical releases. Now, she’s free to do whatever she wants and manage her happenings however she pleases. “Wild you spend so long trying to get IN a record deal… never thought I’d be so elated to be OUT of one,” she wrote on Twitter. “Now I’m free to release whatever kinda music I like, whenever I’d like woooo!”

She added how new music will not be coming this year, but early next year. So in the meantime, expect more Instagram posts from the rapper, like the ones below.

Taking note of the fact that Iggy is now a free agent, porn company Bang Bros. addressed the ‘Fancy’ hitmaker in a tweet and hit her up with their own business proposal.

“You should sign with us,” they tweeted. “A**Parade would never be the same.” Iggy, however, was not impressed by the proposition.

“Disgusting on so many levels, and y’all trash too for reporting it without adding why,” she wrote in a tweet, which has since been deleted. “It’s creepy and fake pimp vibes to even approach women ’bout this sorta shit unsolicited.”

Iggy went on to target individuals show have pestered her following the tweet, questioning, “I want to know why men think it’s ok to harass women online?”

“Why do men feel so comfortable being sexual predators? I don’t want to be a sex worker and shouldn’t have to deal with hundreds of predatory men invading my page because of a PR stunt from a porno company.

“Treat women better. Learn consent. Learn respect. This is gross.” Bang Bros went on to apologise to the rapper in a tweet after letting their followers know that Iggy had blocked them on the platform.

“We support Iggy in her career and wish her well in her endeavors regardless of whether or not she chooses to perform for BangBros,” they wrote.

“We apologize for the manner you were notified about us, this was not an attempt at harassment. This was sent to your management team,” attaching a letter addressed to Iggy’s team.

Meanwhile, Iggy’s beef with fellow female rapper Azealia Banks was reignited this week after the ‘212’ rapper mocked Iggy following her label departure.

Iggy Azalea is celebrating the completion of her contract with Island Records, a division of Universal Music Group.
Many artists would die for a major label contract. Iggy Azalea was apparently dying to get out of hers for a long time.

Now, that moment has arrived. The rapper tweeted on Saturday to let fans know she’s officially out of her deal. Iggy says she’s now free to release whatever kind of music she’d like, whenever she’d like.

The move comes amidst significant changes at Island, most notably the departure of president/CEO David Massey to Sony Music. Whether the two departures are linked is difficult to say.

Despite her newly found creative freedom, Azalea says she doesn’t have any plans to release new music this year.
“I am nowhere near ready direction wise etc. with the stuff I’ve been working on, and I don’t wanna jump the gun and have some messy era aesthetically. I’m aiming to be ready to share new music early next year!”

The Australian rapper has claimed in a series of now-deleted tweets that she’d love to breakaway from her record label and take full ownership of her career.

Iggy – who is currently attached to Island Records – wrote on the micro-blogging platform: “I love Island, but don’t want a label. There are conversations happening at the moment. I want to be my own boss. I feel I would be better off if I could make my own timeline etc choices and I have the funds to do it. (sic)”

The 28-year-old star admitted she didn’t know whether her ambition would come to fruition and also insisted she doesn’t have any major qualms with her label.

She wrote: “It’s just a conversation I don’t know if I will be able to actually make it happen or not. I would still be happy with Island they are good people too… just feel it would be better for me as a business to have the control when I’m confident I can run it well alone. (sic)”

However, Iggy subsequently hinted at performing a U-turn on her plan.

She tweeted: “Just be prepared for lots of thinking aloud and ignore everything I say cause I change my mind every 48hours. (sic)”

Iggy is well-known for giving her followers a behind-the-scenes insight into her life through social media.

But the blonde beauty recently admitted that some aspects of being so candid can be “unfortunate”.

She said: “Twitter is unfortunate, social media is unfortunate because it freezes that in time for us. In some ways, that’s good. You can look back and self-reflect and say, ‘Geez, I’ve come a long way, that’s good.’ The silver lining is that you can look at that and be like, ‘Never again.’

“But I don’t really sit around thinking, ‘If only I could delete that one thing.’ You know, you’ve gotta move forward and have personal growth. I don’t really think much about that.” AZALEA: I WANT TO BECOME MY OWN BOSS
