Iggy Azalea Signs with Def Jam

24 Apr

Just a quick bit of news in the overnight for you…

Iggy Azalea

My current fave femcee, Iggy Azalea, announced today (yesterday? April 24.) that she’s just signed her first major label contract with Island Def Jam!

After renouncing her mentor T.I. as the tentative producer of her debut full-length earlier this year, it’ll be interesting to see who Def Jam pairs her up with for what’s definitely a long-awaited album. She’s released a few mixtapes over the past few years, but the Aussie babe’s come a long way (literally), and is so overdue for a proper release with major promotional backing.

You go, Iggy!

Get the Look: Iggy Azalea in “Work”

18 Mar

GtL: Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea is my absolute favorite “one to watch” in 2013 – the Aussie rapper dropped her first mixtape two years ago, and after being taken under T.I.‘s wing, the stars are finally aligning for her full-length debut, The New Classic, expected this year.

 

Her latest video, “Work,” takes us through the femcee’s journey from Australia to the streets of Miami at just 16, and how she hustled her way to the top – literally. Azalea, neé Amethyst Amelia Kelly, signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint last year, later releasing her Glory EP, which features Tip on “Murda Bizness.”

Azalea tells MTV that the “Work” clip is inspired by Aussie comedy classic The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert as well as Outkast’s 2000 video, “Bombs Over Baghdad

Known for her outrageous ensembles, Iggy’s “Work” wardobe doesn’t let us down, with tons of colors, skimpy outfits and designer duds. With features from Jeremy Scott for Adidas, Minimale Animale swimwear and, of course, the track’s signature Louboutins, we’ll walk you through exactly which pieces she rocked and how to mimic the look for less.

Now slick your tresses into the highest, tightest pony you can muster and get shopping!
