Iggy Azalea Paints a New Face on Hip-Hop with ‘Ignorant Art’

Ignorant Art

Straight outta Australia comes Iggy Azalea. More in your face than Kreayshawn and with a swagger like Gwen Stefani, the blonde-haired rapper has been making noise with her joints “Pu$$y” and “D.R.U.G.S.,” and remix to Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now.” Her most recent release is a nine-track mixtape Ignorant Art (download), made over the course of three months with her crew D.R.U.G.S. It was inspired by the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and aims to challenge the status quo in hip-hop with tracks like “My World” and “Treasure Island.”

“I made Ignorant Art with the intent to make people question and redefine old ideals,” explained the femcee.

Is Iggy poised to be the next breakout star? Get familiar with her below.

    Flow is good lyrics need a lot of work and even with good video editing i don’t see much charisma or star potential. If she catches a big contract it’s a sign real artists have got to push new genre’s sooner than later

    Kids sitting all in the vid while she sings about pu$$ is not the business; [and in no situation am I trying to hear about any person referring to themselves as a slave master, even in metaphor, sorry.]

    HOWEVER, her flow is cool, though. She’s pretty, too. I’m checking out her story now. I’ll check this mix-tape too, thanks, Rap-Up.

    @From Tokyo, Reading her story, I respect her hustle. I always respect being driven and not giving up no matter what, and sticking to her guns with what she wants to do and how she wants to do it. She’s as coarse/crude as all get-out, though. LOL! Not really my cup of tea but I don’t take back the complimentary things I said.

    She has flow and she’s gorgeous, her delivery leaves some to long for, though… But she’s good!

    @topshelf, she’s not looking to do “real hip hop”. there aren’t any real hip hop artist who are main stream any more. she’s def made it clear that she’s here in the RAP game.

    I like her flow but she needs to work on her delivery. She needs to work on her clarity but i like her. With her, her colour isnt a gimmick. Which i like. I hope she improves andn works hard because i see potential.

    Thanks Rap-up!

    She def has star potential she just really needs to work on clarity, I know she’s from Australia but she can def work on clarity. Besides that she just needs to work on getting some noticeable features on her next mixtape, I heard she cool with Pusha T
