“It’s official!!! I am the YOUNGEST FEMALE RAP ARTIST to sign a record deal,” the caption read. “Look out for my first single ‘Go Lay Lay Go’ ALBUM ON THE WAY!!!”
Alaya currently counts over 230,000 Instagram followers and first started gaining attention back in May when her freestyle over BlocBoy JB's "Shoot" went viral on Twitter, which gained her a massive influx of followers.
