Honey G hopes her performances on 'The X Factor' will earn her a record contract with Simon Cowell's Syco label even if she doesn't win the competition
Honey G wants a record deal with Syco.
The rapper is getting ready to spit some verses on 'The X Factor' Fright Night on Saturday evening (29.10.16) and now she's got a taste of the pop world she wants to keep making music regardless of how far she goes in the competition.
Her dream would be for Simon Cowell to sign her to his label.
In an interview with 'This Morning', she said: "The whole of my life I've wanted to be a rapper, and it wasn't until now that I've got the opportunity to be on a platform. I've obviously looking to now pursue a full-time career as a rap music artist. Hopefully get a record deal, hopefully with Syco which is what I really want and be a multi-platinum recording artist and sell records globally and do global tours. So I'd like to put my day job and stuff like that behind me now."
Honey G - whose real name is Anna Guildford - has been bowled over by the support she has received from the British public and wants to keep entertaining viewers every week.
The 'North Weezy' lyrical master thinks her achievement to get to the week four of the live shows is all the more special because she was a Wild Card act.
She explained: "Obviously I'm just completely overwhelmed with the support I've been getting from the public. I'm really enjoying 'X Factor', I'm having the time of my life. It's been completely life changing for me ... I'm loving every moment of it, and I don't want it to end. I'm having the most incredible time of my life.
"I had no idea that I'd get to this point. And obviously I came back into the competition as a Wild Card and, I don't know whether you know, but I was given 48 hours' notice that I would be going to Judges Houses in LA, and to make it through to the live shows and get this far, it's just incredible. I've seen what I'm capable of, and I feel like I've been born as a rap star ... and want to go all the way to the final."
And Honey G - who is being mentored by Sharon Osbourne on the ITV show - is stunned she can count 'In Da Club' hitmaker 50 Cent as a fan.
She said: "It's incredible, I'm so excited about this. 50 Cent has evidently endorsed me! He's come forward and basically backed me ... and said that I'm good for the hip hop music and I'm good for the hip hop game. Basically he's endorsed me and I'm just like so chuffed ... Legend. It's 50 Cent! It's over now, the show's over now, do you know what I mean? 50 Cent is backing me."
