Videos And More Pics After The Jump
It seems like just last year rap fans were lamenting the fact that other than Nicki Minaj, there weren't many up and coming female rappers.
Fast forward to a year later and artists like Nitty Scott MC, Sno Tha Product and Kreayshawn are getting recognition.
However, the hottest female MC might be coming from down under. Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is a name that is starting to buzz.
Her video for the song "Pu$$y" has gotten all kinds of attention for it's title and visual imagery, but she insists she has a lot more to offer.
When she's compared to Kreashawn she doesn't see it as a compliment.
"Sometimes people will be like, 'You want to be like Kreayshawn. I'll be like 'do know know how long I've been rapping for? I've been rapping for eight years! I did not sit here and put out a song and decide that I would f*cking rap like it was some sh*t to do," she told Complex earlier this month.
Her most recent interview was last week in New York with Boss Lady. Iggy was in town to perform at the CMJ Showcase. The Aussie rapper talked about Pusha T's influence on her.
"Pusha, who's signed to G.O.O.D. Music is a good friend of mine," she said. "I'll always send him my music like 'What do you?' And he'll be like 'It's aight.' Sh*T I have to work harder!" she exclaims. "I want him to say he loves something. He's like my toughest critic. Maybe one day me and him will do a song. That's something I'd really like to. I super look up to Pusha. Like I tell people he's my rap mentor."
Iggy currently has a new mixtape out titled Ignorant Art. You can download it for free from her website www.iggyazalea.com.
