Iggy Azalea Paints a New Face on Hip-Hop with '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.
