The New Classic by Iggy Azalea


T.I.'s Australian apprentice Iggy Azalea does have a feminine confidence on her full length debut The New Classic, but she has caved to some mainstream, commercial influences. The electronic beats make for a party feel, and she spends the album rapping about her romantic inspirations and inserting modern boasting and braggadocio. She does give helpful advice occasionally but fails to give specific details about her personal experiences. Her appearance in the rap game itself does merit some appreciation however. As a white female doing rap, following few respected comparisons (Tairrie B, Princess Superstar, Lady Sovereign, V-Nasty, Kreayshawn, etc.) she has a tremendous opportunity to show people that hip hop is for everyone, and because The New Classic is respectable enough, she does a fine job at this.
