Amethyst Amelia Kelly aka Iggy Azalea‘s back in the “murda bizness” with her new single “Work” off of her upcoming album The New Classic. The Australian bombshell MC is gearing up for her release on T.I.’s label Grand Hustle/Mercury. In this video, she pays homage to grinding from scratch and following her dream to achieve success in America. Born in Sydney, Iggy began her career at age 14 in a “TLC-esque” group, but decided on a solo career and moved to the United States. After stints in Miami, Atlanta and Houston, Ms. Azalea found herself drawn to the entertainment and fashion culture of Los Angeles.
Honing her style here in the City of Angels seems to be the perfect fit for her flamboyance and femme fatale bravado. It will be interesting to see if her new album will set her apart from her Female Rap Rival, Azealia Banks, whom is known for beefing with everyone in the industry. Nicki Minaj better watch her back too ’cause Iggy’s coming out sassy this Spring! Peep “Work” and the “Behind the Scenes” videos below and let us know what you think. One thing for certain is that the newly crowned “Face of Levis Jeans” and Wilhelmina Agency Model is definitely getting plenty of “work” and attention in 2013.
