Chav-rapper Lady Sovereign has put pen to paper on a deal with Def Jam, making her the only non-US act on the label.
Playlouder reports that the mightily mouthy midget spent time in the studio of Beastie Boy Ad Rock last week. She plays South By South West this week.
Following her Austin performances, Sov is to jet to Miami a la Will freakin' Smith - "it's for the look, I don't light it" faaack orf - to work on her debut album with some fancy producer types.
Sov's next single, 'Blah Blah', is released through Island on April 17th. It's faaackin' mint.
