Jay-Z Signs UK Grime Emcee, Lady Sovereign

Jay-Z, much like 50 Cent, is focused on expanding his Def Jam brand and
roster. The next move on S. Carter's agenda is to stake a claim in the
bubbling world of British hip-hop -- and the first to draw Jay's attention
is grime queen, Lady Sovereign.

Poised to be the next breakout grime artist, 19-year-old Lady Sovereign
garnered the attention of Jay-Z after a recent New York show and had the
retired emcee instantly hooked, signing her on the spot.

yeah but if its gonna work properly the best way is to stay wit UK
look at ppl who have been signed in tha US
they wont get their stuff put out like tha others
SAS in US fo how long now, aint no1 talk bout em
SOV released her ish from DJ now rite? not made much of a diff
i think ppl got mo chance to blow up from UK
US u got mo chances of bein put to a side
aint dynamite signed by UK?
she basically gone worldwide, every1 know her
and loadsa ppl heard of Dizzee
rite now there aint that much of a need fo UK to go to US
