While doing my daily errands on the internet I ran across a new up and coming artist video feature. The “artist” looked like a model, and the article claimed the song was not what one would expect, so I press-played... “Cotton candy laced in gold. Stack that money. Sushi roll. Bottles up…VIP overload. My World. Bomb b*tches. White girl team full of bad b*tches…,” she spits. She RAPS, that is. As I lift my jaw back after being smitten with all that boner swag and some mad ponytail flying around like a deadly weapon (FYI all her own hair), I turn to Google.
Iggy Azalea is apparently from Australia, and moved to US right before she turned 16 years old to pursue her music career. Her father was a comic artist and painter and her mother cleaned holiday houses and hotels. Azalea didn’t graduate from high school because she'd rather earn and save money by cleaning with her mother to pursue her desire of moving to America. She lived in Miami, Houston and Atlanta before moving to Los Angeles in 2010. She is still unsigned, has a free mixtape out, and several videos that went viral on YouTube. I’m not sure what in the world she was doing in all those cities and how she got the money to put all those videos out, but let’s not let our fantasy run wild. I found something about scam gift cards and selling hair on internet, random hustle.
With all the buzz surrounding her right now, rumours are she may have already found a home at Def Jam. I have a feeling – this girl is going to be a huge star.
