After a short delay, Iggy Azalea has finally dropped her Glory EP, giving fans hope that her The New Classic debut will soon follow. The Australian rapstress, and first lady of Grand Hustle, was engaged in label confusion after things with Interscope Records fell through, but Glory marks an opportunity for Azalea to be herself. “Glory is a traditional Hip-Hop record,” Azalea told Hip-Hop Wired, last month.
“The New Classic falls somewhere in the middle. I'm just really, a fan of Hip-Hop and rap music, and I just wanted to do a record that was strictly that sort of thing. Like a passion project before I put out my album. When I think of an album, we're really trying to satisfy more of a fan base, and this is kind of my passion project.”
Aside from the music, the 22-year-old has bumped up her talent for picture-taking to an official level by signing a deal with Wilhelmina Models. She also dropped the video for “Murda Bizness,” the first single off The New Classic, which features T.I. In the video, Tip and Azalea play parents to youngsters competing in child pageants.
