Iggy Azalea Shares Girl Group Beginnings, Love for Tupac

How does a blonde beauty like Iggy Azalea become one of today’s most-talked-about rappers? The “Murda Bizness” MC shares how her relationship with hip-hop began and the first song she fell in love with on MTV2’s “Sucker Free.”

“I just loved that song,” Iggy said of 2Pac & Outlawz’ “Baby Don’t Cry (Keep Ya Head Up 2).” “I don’t know what it was.”

Her passion for the music eventually turned into a career. “I knew I loved rap music, I knew I loved to sing along to the words,” she said. “It takes a while before you have the guts to put yourself in their shoes and think this is something I could actually do.”

Before going solo, the Australian femcee was in a group with two other girls in her neighborhood. “I was like, I could be the rapper. This could be like TLC. I’ll be Left Eye.”

Iggy eventually decided to leave the group because the other girls weren’t taking it seriously. “I take everything I do serious. I’m too competitive.”
