These were snapped last night as 22-year-old Australian hip hop artist Iggy Azalea was seen leaving Shepard Bush Empire in London along with Rita Ora following their performance. Since this is the first time we’re posting Azalea, here’s more info, as well some YouTube featuring some of her work:
Amethyst Amelia Kelly (born 7 June 1990), better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian hip hop recording artist signed to Grand Hustle Records and a model represented by Wilhelmina Models. She first gained recognition after the respective music videos for her promotional songs “Pu$$y” and “Two Times,” went viral on YouTube. On 27 September 2011, Azalea released her first full-length project, a mixtape titled Ignorant Art, saying she made it “with the intent to make people question and redefine old ideals”.
In 2012, Azalea became the first female and first non-American rapper to be featured on XXL Magazine’s annual Top 10 Freshman cover issue. She released a free extended play online, titled Glory on 30 July 2012. She also appeared in a cypher at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards alongside T.I. and other Grand Hustle artists. She released her second mixtape TrapGold, produced entirely by Diplo and FKi, on 11 October 2012. Her debut studio album The New Classic is set to be released in 2013.
On 28 January 2013, Azalea performed her new single, “Work,” on the Radioactive Tour. The song is set to be released in February 2013.
