X-Factors Young Rapper Astro, Might Have a Deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Label [rumor]

There is no official statement from either Astro’s Family or Jay-Z’s camp that he is indeed signed to Jay’s Roc Nation Label, despite the fact that Wikepedia is already updated showing him on the squad.

His potential label mates would be:

  •  Jay-Z himself
  • J. Cole
  • Alexis Jordan
  • Bridget Kelly
  • Hugo
  • Jay Electronica
  • Rita Ora
  • Willow Smith
  • K. Koke

I think there is truth to the rumor.  If you saw Astro’s exit from the show, he wasn’t even that upset.  In fact I might have even saw a little grin.

It’s difficult when hip hop enters the mainstream.  People see this 15 year old kid as this amazing talent, and I just see an arrogant sh*t.  Sorry to go so much against the grain, but ever since he had his little tantrum on stage I just can’t stomach the kid.  He is one of the reasons I stopped watching X-factor.

After his mouthing off to Simon (the reason that the show even exists) in the earlier weeks, he pulls another stunt when he is voted in the bottom.  He almost refuses to perform asking the crowd, “Should I perform”.

WTF – Of course you better perform you little prick.  Here is the clip, after this there was no turning back for me.
