Iggy Recently sat down with the crew over at CNN to talk about music, sex, and growing up liking hip hop in Australia. Cnn’s website has audio.
CNN: When I think Australia, I think Kylie Minogue and Keith Urban. Where does rap come into play?
Iggy Azalea: There’s a small culture, and there are other Australian artists that rap that are popular in Australia, but they don’t make it over here – yet (laughs).
Growing up nobody liked the style of music [I liked]. I always felt really alone because no one wanted to talk about the things that I enjoyed, and that was really rap music and hip-hop as a culture. You know, having the shoes, using the words, buying the magazines, seeing the videos. And I had nobody to share it with, so I feel like I lived a lot online.
CNN: You started rapping at 15 in Australia, and people weren’t immediately feeling it…
Azalea: Yea, throwing the boos!

Earlier this week, rapper Eve admitted in an interview that she’s “not really into Iggy,” and that she’s not a fan of the MC. Well, Iggy has heard the interview and has responded to Eve. Check out what she told XXL below:
“I like Eve,” she began. “Everybody is different, everybody hasn’t lived out of the box and for you to even know if it’s real, you have to kind of be an out-the-box person or somebody who likes something they’re not suppose to [like]. A girl like her that raps is expected, so, how could you understand something so different?
“I’m not mad at [Eve] for not understanding it,” she continued. “How could you if you’ve never been ostracized or loved something you weren’t suppose to love? Everything you’ve loved you’re allowed to love, so, how could you understand me? Thus, how could you know if it’s real? I used to be like, ‘It is real, let me prove it to you. Now, I don’t care if you think it’s real or not because it’s what I love, it’s my life. I don’t put my story all out there for you because I don’t need to put my story out there and prove it. I don’t give a fuck if you think I am or not ’cause that girl in the crowd understand it and that’s who it’s for, if you don’t then it’s not for you.”

“I haven’t worked with him but I met him. He actually invited me to be in his “Niggas In Paris” video, which I didn’t get to do because I had a flight to New York that day. But I met him and we had a conversation and he wanted me to be in it. He’s doing this new label, I’m sure you saw him tweet about it… he wanted me to become involved in all of that and I think his idea is completely genius but for me I think I want more of a traditional structure. I don’t wanna be a guinea pig.
“I think his idea is great but any great blueprint has its kinks. And you don’t know what they are and you can’t anticipate them. His company will have kinks too and he will figure them out. I just wanna be in one that’s smooth and with people that are on the business side of things [and done it] a million times. I’ll take care of the creative side of things. Let me do that, you handle the business shit, you know what I mean? I think the concept is genius but for me right now I just want more of a traditional structure.” – Iggy Azalea, on why she chose not to partner with Kanye West

Iggy recently talked with XXL Magazine after the freshman concert and stated that she will be shooting the video for “Murda Bizness soon and also stated that the video will premiere the first week of may.
An in-studio video for Iggy Azalea’s “Murda Bizness” featuring T.I. dropped a couple of days ago, but Iggy insists it isn’t the official clip for the track. In fact, the “My World” rapper clarified to XXLMag.com last week during the 2012 Freshmen Live Tour stop in New York City that the real version of the video is being shot in a couple of days and will drop during the first week of May.
“The real video is getting filmed in like 10 days,” she said. “I’m a perfectionist, so, that first video is not my final work.”
Iggy also revealed that she will be releasing a second single in June and “hopefully, end of July, we’ll put my album [The New Classic] out and I’ll be touring.”

Iggy Recently sat down with The Boombox and discussed collaborations as well has Azealia Banks stealing her spotlight like Kanye did Taylor Swift.
Iggy Azalea hasn’t gotten used to being famous yet. Over the last six months, the Aussie rapper has gone from Internet star to having all of hip-hop’s ears turned in her direction. Cutting her teeth in Atlanta before heading to L.A., Azalea , born Amethyst Amelia Kelly, fell in love with rap at age 11, after hearing Tupac’s song “Baby Don’t Cry.” Three years later, she started rapping and moved to the states before she was 21.
Like many up-and-coming rhymers, Azalea started posting her music on YouTube, and amassed a solid fan following. Among the tracks that garnered her the most hits was the sexually explicit, bass heavy track “Pu$$y.” Out the gate, Azalea’s aggressive flow, with a hint of a southern accent, is the last thing one would expect from a platinum blonde white girl from down under. But maybe that’s why she’s so appealing. Although hip-hop has no race requirements, there’s no denying that the number of successful white rappers are few and far between. In the last year alone, a handful of white female rappers have emerged, namely Kreayshawn, her sidekick V-Nasty, K-Flay and Azalea herself, who are bending rules when it comes to what rappers can both look and sound like.

Iggy Azalea stopped by MTV’s Times Square studios on Monday to tape the late-night talk show “MTV’s Hip Hop POV.” The blonde Aussie chatted with the panel for an episode that will air Wednesday at midnight.
In addition to T.I. and her Hustle Gang family, the “Murda Bizness” rapper has collaborated with Trey Songz on “Waste It All,” a cut off her upcoming debut The New Classic. “I did do a song with Trey Songz that’s kind of unexpected,” she told The Boombox. “The beat, and the way he sings, it’s kind of different [from] his regular style. I’m going to put that out, probably before the album.”
The Interscope Records release will represent her different sides. “Some stuff is very base-driven, stripped down, more southern-sounding. Then other stuff is more mood and closer to my ignorant [side],” shared Iggy. “I kind of like have two different zones. It’s ratchet, then introspective, I guess. Those are the two sounds, and I’m trying to glue all the things together, and find things that will make it cohesive.”
She also professed her love for Missy Elliott. “She’s my No. 1 female,” gushed Iggy. “She’s a writer, she has the crazy videos, she just does her own thing. She pulls her own as a singer, a rapper, everything. She’s one of the greatest girls ever, and I love her.”
