3. "Letter to The President" (1999)
Album: Still I Rise
Producer: QD III
Iggy Azalea: “It’s an awesome song. I like the way the hook was so simple and chanty. It’s amazing listening to that song in Australia. It made me feel like I could look into what was going on at the time in the country and see the actual concept of things—whether it was politically or within the community. I thought it was really cool and really good storytelling with some sort of a purpose.
“Sometimes people try to tell a message and it gets lost because it’s too preachy and they get deterred from that. This song is about something going on politically, but it’s still something you can listen to on any level. I thought it was a good mix.”
