SOUTH LONDON rapper Nadia Rose has landed a record deal with Sony Records.
The 22-year-old, from Croydon, announced the news via her social media account today (May 23).
Her post sparked a number of congratulatory messages from fellow UK stars and fans alike.
“Yes Nads!! welcome to the family,” Relentless Records, a subsidiary of Sony, tweeted.
Nadia Rose grew up around music. Her dad was a dancehall and jungle DJ and MC, so when she was a kid her house was full of exciting sounds. It fed into her childhood and at 13 she began writing her own rhymes to get through a time when she felt “lost”.
Fast-forward to the summer of 2014 and Nadia was working in a betting shop in Croydon, writing music on betting slips. “I didn’t feel like I was being me. I felt like a robot,” she says. So she handed in her resignation and began making tunes with friend and producer The Black Obsidian.
Last year, she released track D.F.W.T, which has received over 400,000 views on YouTube.
