Appearing on Houston radio station 97.9 The Box, rapper Big Jade explained the real reason why she did not sign with Offset.
According to the Texas based rapper, she was actually approached by Offset who was looking to sign the upcoming artist. The 26-year old has caught the attention of many, especially visually with her music videos which stand out from the normal hip hop videos we are accustomed to seeing. Focusing more on the content and story telling, rather than pulling in the viewer sexually.
Interested in signing with Offset who was willing to give her double of what Alamo Records was offering, Jade could not take the offer as she claims Offset wanted her to get plastic surgery.
“”I could have signed with Offset and he was willing to give me double what Alamo Records gave me,” Big Jade said on The Box. “I love Offset to death, I love him and Cardi B to death. I didn’t sign with Offset because of a statement that he made about me having to start from scratch and get my body done. You ain’t talked to me about getting my body done. I probably would have wanted to get my body done but the fact that you ain’t talked to me about it first– if you would have gotten to know me and talked to me, you would have seen that’s not even what I’m pushing.”
This is not the route that Big Jade would like to take her music as she explained on 97.9. “I feel like hip-hop died when titties and ass started becoming more important than the music. I’m not gone do that. Even if I’m not happy with something in myself, I’m still not gone do it. That’s something that I battle with every day. Like, should I get this procedure done, should I get that done? I’m still learning how to love myself so that’s what I wanna push. I wanna show people that they can love themselves.”
