: Tonight after being voted off tv show Xfactor, Astronomical Kid (Brian Bradley) was just signed to Record Label, Roc-Nation.
Jay-Z, thirteen time grammy award winner, former CEO of Def Jam Recordings and founder of Roc-Nation said, " I first heard about this exciting new talent and decide to watch some of his performances. Jay-Z goes on to say, "Not only was I impressed with his performances, but to see the confidence he sang with, his lyrics and diction were on point."
And there's more. We're told that Jigga and 'em are working FEVERISHLY . . . to get Astro onto WILLOW SMITH'S new track.
Dude is gonna be BIGGER than if he WON X-Factor!!!
Good for him!! He is so talented. But, America spoke and kept Chris Rene. Seriously? Still shaking my head! Now for that cute little girl, Rachel to go to Disney. Drew is a boring mess. Her singing make me feel like either drinking or crying my eyes out. Marcus is good too but I know who will sign him.
MAKE ROOM FOR MELANIE AMARO people. SHE IS THE X-FACTOR WINNER. She better be!!!
I love Astro he is a star...mark my words he will do big things and is a better rapper than the other child rappers in the past 6ie Bow Wow Kriss Kross Romeo Miller... He has an amazing ability and is very intellectual for his age. I was very shocked to see him voted off, and to be honest LA Reid has the most talent on his team...once Marcus gets voted off if he doesnt win..Im done watching #Team LA all day!!
He needs an attitude adjustment.
lil whiny prick n he's not even handsome just cocky. bye lil boy
he still has a lighter complexion that yourwhole gujarati family, bish lol
deal with tht dusky n dusty
LOL @ Kush!!! As for Astro good for him...for a while there I was afraid Diddy would snatch him up and destroy what chance of a career he has. The worst case scenario would have been Young Money scoopin him up, but I doubt his mom or stepdad would allow it. The Astronomical Kid will not be stopped...this boy has a bright career ahead of him. Swag!
I absolutely love this kid to death. His swagger and attitude stayed original and gave him that believability factor. My son DICE CUB is a rapper. Google him Y'all and some great ones never make it to the top. If my son ain't made it yet - hell, I am rootin for ASTRO. He's got what it takes. Anybody talk back to Simon and get away with it is alright with me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since his mother was encouraging him to act that way, I can't blame the CHILD, but I blame his mom. He did what lots of kids do when they don't feel wanted, he pouted. He's got a long way to go and that comes with time and growing pains. He has mad skills and talent...wish he could have gone to anybody but "j-hova". He needs a good attorney and a good business manager or he'll be right where a lot of young artist started out with the wrong label...wondering where the money went! Anbody that advertises an "Occupy ALL Street" T-shirt is capable of any scheme.
And the only reason why they're holding on to Chris Renee is because nobody wants to be responsible for his relapse when he loses. He's a horrible singer and no better as a rap artist either. They've puffed this dude up and now are afraid of what might happen when he gets deflated.
I see ppl always hating on Jay but this cant be nothing but a win win situation for the lil dude because he didnt have a deal and now he got a deal but hes joining a elite group ( Jay, Kanye, Beyonce, and RiRi)..please name me 4 ppl under the same umbrella /label who is hotter than them!! His additude will chnage because he will be around real stars not tv show made stars!!
I used to give Roc Nation the side-eye but lately they have been winning. The first artist signed to the label, J Cole is getting his shine--got a #1 CD and sales bigger than any of the new rappers debuting this year(Wiz, Big Sean, Wale, Mac Miller etc); got a top 20 hit with "Work Out" and now a Best New Artist Grammy nomination! He's making the right moves. So maybe this kid will get some shine too. Just wish him well....
@ _DesiPrincess, just another what b@tch? successful black kid that yall stay jealous of and try to block their path. b@tch plz, ur azz will b the first in line to open ur patheti legs to f@kk and try to push out a kid to get what our BLACK race has. stay hating b@tch
yall stay hating on the kid. blk ppl r like fukking crabs in a barrel. yall just cant congratulate the kid and leave it at that. another lil blk kid is making it out the ghetto and doing something with his life and all yall can talk about is his attitude, checks urs first peeps, cause yall some envious b@tches. lil man, congrats and i know u will go on to bigger and better things, and these same hateful b@tches will b the ones buying ur sh@t. CONGRATS TO A 14 YR OLD WITH MUCH MUCH TALENT AND MAANY SUCCESS TO COME. IM PROUD OF U. sad, u dont hear the white race dogging no talentes azz justin beiber, but blk american r good to dog their own. how sad
I just watched a few of his videos. Wow! This child is an old soul - and wise. I love his energy, his confidence and his skills. He's a little griot. May nothing and no one put out his spark or kill his spirit, concentration or TRUST in himself. ASHE! ASHE! He has a powerful MIND. This is not a docile or subservient kid. Thank GOODNESS! He SHOULD think highly of himself. He has exceptional potential. With some professional guidance and affirmative support from those who LOVE him and have HIS best interests at heart, he will be fine.
I knew somebody was gonna snatch him up because his lyrical skills do deliver, but what's really important is keeping this kid grounded and humble which is going to be damn near impossible since he's not already! That temperamental Brat is already as arrogant as Kanye West at such a young and tender age. Boy oh Boy it's gonna get really interesting once he get's on the Hollywood music scene, cause he's his own man running his own show his mother and step father don't seem to have a say At All in the matter.
ripthuggery--The boy has serious talent and work ethic.
@ripthuggery - That is EXACTLY what I noticed, too. His work ethic is fierce for a 14 yr old. Older folks don't have his discipline. I understand that he works well under pressure. He penned a song under 2 hours after L.A. Reid told him the song he was scheduled to perform was 'whack'. He has hunger, passion and drive. He loves what he is doing. He's not a talker; he's a DOER. The universe WILL respond accordingly to make things happen for him. He's got the right formula. I have respect and admiration for his artistry.
Im sorry he's being rewarded for being a little prick, now he makes money forget about, Im sorry I know he's young & hopefull jay will put him in his place because, I think alot more people out there jjust as talented and would never be so cocky....i don't want to hat on a kid, but as a man he's going to be so annoying. sorry no good luck here, and i know alot of people feel the same. go to the Bronx Brooklyn, you will find talent who would be honored to preform on the xfactor and work hard for it, not deel like there the best and deserfe it, and i don think hes that good , just good a being a bratty ass.
yes bitches the queen was laughing at haters, she said she dont have the time for negativity and she said miss tina went the fuck off when these false rumors came, and she also confirmed shes having a girl, you could tell it when that lady asked her the question, so you haters dismissed, stans we the fucking best, bey just look and laugh at haters, we dont have time for negative shit,we the best son, we the muthafucking best. :)
He's talented without a doubt, but this kid could use a lesson in HUMILITY! His attitude is a major turn off and I wanted him gone several weeks back when he came off rude, ungrateful and disrespectful. He's too damn grown for his own good.
BIGGEST MISTAKE. Jay knows he is good and a threat to him that is why he signed him. Little one be careful there is only so far he will let you go...the BOSS will not allow you to go beyond him....mark my words.
He will either shelve you or give you just a little taste of stardom....BEWARE!!!
I usually do not listen to rap. I like to watch the X-Factor for Simon and the singing. I love Astro, I googled him a gazillion times on You Tube. I can't wait to buy your cd. I also want to take my nieces and nephews to see you in concert. Good grab Jay Z!!!
Y'all are really hating & calling someones child out of his name because he had a tantrum? Kanye is WELL OVER 15 when he threw a tantrum, y'all laughed & still buys his music. Y'all are clearly miserable, broke, demonic haters & wonder why you're on the outside looking in... Keep ya telescope lense clean so you can see him in the sky & continue to hate from a distance. So ASTRONOMICAL #Dope
Astro is killin it! He got swag and YEEZY arrogance but also some serious talent. I knew somebody was gonna sign him the second he got voted off of XFactor. He bout to make Moms and step pops mad rich! Do ya thing kid!
