HNHH had a sit down with Grand Hustle rapstress Iggy Azalea at SneakerPimps in LA. She talked about her Glory EP, which female rapper she grew up idolizing, her upcoming mixtape "Trap Gold" and working with Diplo, T.I. and the Grand Hustle family and more.
Fresh off her EPÂ release Glory, Iggy Azalea is seemingly everywhere in theÂ media these days. She spoke to HNHH about her upcoming album The New Classic,Â how she idolized Missy Elliot growing up, whyÂ dropping out of school was necessary for her career,Â how her relationship with T.I. and Grand Hustle has helped her navigate through the growing pains of being a young rapper, and what she has planned forÂ her mixtape Trap Gold.
With Trap Gold underway, sheÂ had nothing but praise for Diplo. Â For this mixtape, there willÂ beÂ "...less storytelling...Â It'll be more fun... shit you can dance to. You could listen to this mixtape as an instrumental the whole way through. I could put Trap Gold out now with no words and it would kill half the shit out there because Diplo is a genius. That's, no testament to me, I can say that Diplo is the man." Â When both are in the studio Iggy willÂ "say if I don't like something. If I do, I'll cheer him on."
Looking forward to her newÂ album The New Classic, Iggy wants to make it "...more personal and it will be more introspective. There's more storytelling songs. I've got a song with Pusha and Cee-Lo that I've spokeÂ about before, that I was supposed to put on Glory, but I saved it."
Have a listen to Gloryhere.
