Iggy Azalea is a young female rapper who’s been making a global splash in the hip hop world recently. Over the last year, Iggy’s collaborated on a number of hit records and held a few records of her own. She could possibly be the female version of Eminem, as she’s one of the most successful white artists in rap right now. We wanted to fill you in on some things about Iggy Azalea that you might not already know.
1. Iggy is Not Her Real Name
Iggy Azalea was born Amethyst Amelia Kelly. Her stage name is derived from her childhood dog’s name, Iggy and the street she grew up on, Azalea. I guess “Amethyst” doesn’t sound edgy enough for a rapper.
2. She’s Not American
Iggy Azalea grew up in the small town of Mullumbimby, in New South Wales, Australia. The young rapper actually speaks with an Australian accent, much different from the Southern drawl she raps in. Iggy became interested in rap and hip-hop music through the Internet. She says she was inspired by Missy Elliot and Tupac’s music growing up, because there weren’t many Australian rappers for her to look up to.
