Iggy Azalea Explains Why Her Album Is ‘Classic’

Iggy Azalea has a lot to live up to with the title of her debut The New Classic. During her appearance on “MTV’s Hip Hop POV,” the Australian femcee faced criticism from the hosts, but defended the bold choice.

“I think people think of classic and they think of a Nas record or a Jay-Z record or The Chronic,” said the “Murda Bizness” rapper.

“What makes something classic is when you hear it and you have that moment that is a time capsule. When I say The New Classic, I just want to make records that give you that moment for fans that they can remember where they were when they heard it.”

Hear what else Iggy has to say when the full interview airs tonight at midnight on MTV.
