Her Obsession With 2Pac
Iggy Azalea: “I used to love 2Pac. I was obsessed with him. When I was 13, I heard ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ by 2Pac and The Outlawz at my next-door neighbors’ house. I didn’t really love any music until then, I just loved what was on the radio. Then I heard that song and I don’t know what it was about it that made me love it so much.
“I went and got the album and listened to it a billion times. Then I got every other album, every song, every documentary about 2Pac. I got anything to do with 2Pac. I would sit at home all day long and be obsessed with it because I lived in this small town and I had nothing else to do. I would be in this little 2Pac world.
“I used to think 2Pac was still alive. I remember I used to go on [The Seven Day Theory website]. They were like, ‘In his movie Poetic Justice, look at the menu. It’s not an L, it’s a backwards seven, upside down.’ I was like, ‘Whoa! They are! There’s no denying it now.’
“I was just waiting for 2007. I was like, ‘It’s the seven day theory. He’s going to be alive in eight months!’ Obviously, he’s dead but I thought he was alive for a little while. It seems stupid now, but I thought he was alive. I really did.”
