X Factor's Honey G has been dropped by Simon Cowell's Syco record label.

The rapper had a one-single deal with the music mogul but won't be releasing any more songs or an album.


Last year's X Factor hopeful released her debut track in December, but it's fair to say it didn't set the charts alight.

The Honey G Show made a tragic debut at Number 149 in the official charts.

However Honey G isn't one to give up, telling The Sun newspaper she's now launching her own label.

She told the tabloid: "My own record label will be representing real rap and hip-hop music. Obviously making it as a global rap star is still my dream.

“I have a 2:1 BA in popular music and recording, specialising in music technology and studio production.”

Speaking earlier this year, Honey G also revealed plans to work with some big names on her future tracks.


"I really want to start collaborating with some US hip-hop artists like Missy Elliott," she declared following the flop.

And if Missy Elliott is busy, Honey G told the Daily Star newspaper other names on her wish list are the likes of Jay Z, Lil' Wayne, Timbaland, Alicia Keys and Mary J Blige.

"I really see collaborating with a US hip-hop artist as the next step," Honey G explained.

She went on dismiss taking part in any other reality TV shows such as I'm A Celebrity or Big Brother.


"It's not going to be good for my street cred, my reputation," she said. "I want to perform globally, release and sell millions of records, and reality TV is not for me, I'm afraid.

"Big Brother, or the jungle, it's not for me."
