The Popdust Files: big boi
What do you get for the girl who’s got everything? A record label, apparently. Big Boi decided not to go the My Super Sweet Sixteen-freakout route for daughter Jordan and instead joined her on a new label: Purple Kidz, set to launch within weeks. As the name suggests, they’ll be looking for younger signees, and according to Big Boi, they’ve already got their first: 12-year-old Gabbie Rae, whose “Neverland” (watch it below) is a remarkably ready-to-ship bit of teenpop with a super-’80s (or at least super-Ark Music Factory) video.
Purple Kidz is a novel concept, but there’s a second time for everything, and Big Boi can’t be the only musician in need of a birthday gift for the kids. Based on nothing but pure speculation and wishful thinking, here’s who we think could handle the job:
Hailie Mathers: After all Eminem’s 15-year-old daughter has been through — parental love songs both foul-mouthed and torrentially emotional, chronicles of broken marriages, even Ja Rule dis tracks — we think a pretty damn good, if labor-intensive, present is in order.
Artists they’d sign: Troubled rappers and the ones who sing for them. Frequent collaborations with Skylar Grey would definitely be in the contract.
Lourdes Maria Ciccone: OK, this one could actually happen. After all, she and Madonna have already started a fashion label together, Madonna’s involved in label Maverick Records, and if certain rumors are true, Madge and her 14-year-old daughter have recorded a song already called “It’s So Cool.”
Artists they’d sign: Everyone waiting for Lady Gaga to start her own label.
Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline: The logistics of this might be a bit iffy considering Britney’s conservatorship. There’s also the matter of them being 5 and 4 years old. But if Britney’s team can keep her career going despite her possible wishes, why wouldn’t they want to carry it forth through the generations? And if Jamie’s involved, those generations will be multiple!
Artists they’d sign: People very, very immune to the tabloids.
Willow Smith: Because you just know it’s going to happen, possibly by the time she’s 12.
Artists they’d sign: 21st century girls and hair-whippers, all of whom will become inescapable for 10 minutes.
