When 15-year old Brian Bradley aka The Astronomical Kid was voted off of X-Factor last week he didn't take it as hard as some might have expected given how hard he had worked to make into the top seven.
One reason he might have been able to accept his fate much better than Drew, who cried throughout the elimination show, is because he was never expected to make it that far. X-Factor is a show designed to find America's next big singer, not rapper.
"I’m happy. I wish everyone [on the X Factor] the best of luck," Astro told the New York Daily News. “Now, I could just release music. I know I’m going to be the next big hip-hop artist. I just want to save hip-hop . . . that’s my job.”
One rumor that has been floating around is that Astro is close to signing a deal with Jay's Roc Nation imprint.
“I couldn’t tell you anything. I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said. “I’m not focused on the labels, I just got home. I’m just trying to make great music.”
