Amanda Bynes' dream of becoming a hip-hop rapper might be coming true. According to the New York Post, Bynes has been approached by music producer Daniel Herman of Chinga Chang Records for her own record deal.
Bynes has mentioned several times on Twitter that she wanted to become a singer/rapper. In a May 27 tweet about the New York City Police Department she posted that the NYPD were lying about finding drugs in her apartment and said she was going to sue the department for illegally entering her apartment.
She ended the Twitter rant by adding: "Look forward to seeing me in music videos! I'm getting in shape and getting a nose job! I'm looking forward to a long and wonderful career as a singer/rapper!"
Herman told Radar Online that he wants to give the former Nickelodeon star a chance to really become a rapper.
"I cleared the project with The Orchard and Sony Entertainment and they gave me the green light to go ahead," Herman said to Radar.
He claims to have also reached out to Bynes' attorneys so a contract could be signed.
"I think she's more gangster than Drake," he told the website about wanting to sign Bynes. "The fact that Amanda wants to do hip-hop music means that Chinga Chang label is the best place for her to do this, because of my past experience with bringing pop and legitimate hip-hop together."
For some the idea of a rapping Bynes does not seem that strange. If she really does decide to pursue a rapping career she already has support from some of her fans as well as people in the hip-hop industry. According to In Touch magazine, rapper Waka Flocka Flame thinks Bynes could be the "next Pink" adding that he wants to help Bynes.
"I reached out to her, I got a great production team for her, I got great records in the process of being made for her, so hopefully that's something she takes a look at," he told the magazine. "She just wants a change."
He also admitted to the magazine that the two had made plans to Face Time and he honestly does think she could be the next big thing but "she's got to be her own person."
When asked what her stage name should be, Waka Flocka said "A.B."
