Amanda Bynes is signing a record deal with rapper Waka Flocka Flame for her upcoming hip hop album, apparently he thinks she is going to be a big hit.

It is unclear what Waka’s exact role will be, though he told the site he’s got rappers writing her songs. The Atlanta, Georgia-based rapper does not have any production credits on his three studio albums. He did say that while contracts are pending, but confirmed his involvement.

Waka says he and Amanda FaceTime at least once a week and text every day, mostly about her rap career … but also about motivational stuff, like “keeping  her head up from the haters.”

Previously, Bynes was part of the ensemble to the Hairspray soundtrack in 2007. The platinum album featured Bynes’ vocals on “You Can’t Stop The Beat” and “Without Love.” She has not previously released any Hip Hop songs.
