X-Factor rapper Astro signs to Epic Records | Music News

Having won over the hearts of many while on the US version of the hit show X-Factor, 15 year old rapper Astro went on to release his LΦSER mixtape and collaborate with another one time X-Factor contestant, the UK’s Cher Lloyd on “Want U Back.” It seems that isn’t all the young star in the making has in store for us, however, with reports recently surfacing that he has signed on the dotted line with Epic Records.

“I’m excited to continue my journey with L.A. Reid and his staff at the new Epic Records,” said Astro, who is also known as the Astronomical Kid. “The first time L.A. saw me he said I’d be a star, and I can’t wait to get to work and prove him right. 2011 was Dope, but 2012 is gonna be Epic!” [via Rap-Up]
