Moving To Houston & Atlanta
Iggy Azalea: “After Miami, I moved to Houston and lived there for about nine months. I lived there until Hurricane Ike came. We went away because of the hurricane. When we came back, it was way worse than everybody thought it would be. I had an apartment and it blew all of the windows out of my place and it blew all of our shit into the street. So when I got back I didn’t have anything.
“At that time, everyone I knew was moving to Atlanta. They were like, ‘The industry is booming in Atlanta, and we don’t have our houses, so that’s where we’re going.’ I was like, ‘Well, that’s where I’m going to then.’ So I moved to Atlanta until August of last year, when I moved to L.A. That’s when I met my best friend and we started our hair business.
“In 2009, my friend and I started a hair business called Far East Tress where we sell hair on the Internet. I don’t want to risk getting deported from where I really want to be over dumb shit like a gift card [scam]. So we started this business. I thought, Let me start this business as a foreign investor at least. Once I employ five people, as a foreign investor, I can get a green card.”
