A few weeks ago, a new artist by the name of Iggy Azalea came to our attention. We were immediately struck by a trio of her songs, “D.R.U.G.S.,” her “Two Times” freestyle (and its controversial video), and of course, the ever so catchy “PU$$Y.” Next thing you know, we were following her on Twitter and on the lookout for her mixtape, Ignorant Art, which dropped earlier this week and you can download here.
A number of things stuck out about Iggy right away. For one, she’s gorgeous—the girl’s got the looks of a supermodel. Two, she spits raunchy raps like a young Foxy, but her flow is like a cross between Yelawolf going doubletime and one of Nicki Minaj’s British alter-egos. Oh, and she’s also a white girl—just like Complex covergirl Kreayshawn!
Needless to say, we were immediately intrigued by the 21-year-old Australian born rapper. But thanks to a considerable amount of misinformation about her on the Internet, we went straight to the source and got on the horn with her to find out, Who Is Iggy Azalea?
The still unsigned Los Angeles resident told us about her lonely childhood, her obsessions with Tupac and Grace Kelly, and how she came to the United States and tried to be a model (until an agency told her she was too thick). Plus, she took time out to talk about the comparisons between her and Kreayshawn, and breaks down why we've seen such a sudden influx of white rappers.
