Iggy Azalea Tells All At ‘The Breakfast Club’

Published: Friday 22nd Jun 2012 by David

To many, Iggy Azalea should be 2012’s breakout star considering her explosive 2011 debut with ‘PUY‘.

Unfortunately for her, that ‘title’ is now shared by fellow Femcee Azealia Banks and the rapturous Rita Ora, both of whom have seen their international stock rise within the last few months, by way of heavy media coverage and favorable radio play.

Now, Azalea has spoken to ‘The Breakfast Club’ about her label situation, her feud with Banks and her feelings toward Grand Hustle boss T.I.

Watch below…


On why her deal with Interscope fell through, she explained:

They didn’t want Tip to be an ongoing part of my deal. They just wanted him to produce one album and me and Tip were like, ‘No, it has to be in there so it’s the whole thing’.

As much as we’re into Iggy, we can’t say we’re surprised at her messy ‘Interscope’ situation.

For, much like many of today’s acts, Iggy has been forced out into the public without a clear plan as to how she intends to  take her art ‘to the next level’- assuming a viral smash would guarantee instant success.

A viral smash, that could have become a chart smash had she played her cards right and waited for the right deal to come along, instead of getting into bed with T.I. who- as we’ve stressed before- has no experience scouting and grooming successful acts.

In fact, if we’re going to keep it 100, T.I’s reputation when it comes to new acts should have been enough to scare Iggy off, considering the ‘on the shelf’ status of most of Hustle’s performers.

So for her sake, we hope she gets out while she can and heads over to a serious label soonish.

If not, she may spend the rest of her career regretting signing with a team who signed her on the basis of hype and not her potential. A shame, considering Iovine and co seemed so interested before.

      you know what,I’m actually starting to like this chick,i never gave her a chance and i think it’s coz i happen to love Azealia Banks! But Iggy is GORGEOUS! and her accent is hot! she has good taste in men 😉 😉 a$ap is a cutie and some of her songs are actually not bad at all! Her body is SICKKKK! and so are all her music videos! Glad she signed a modelling contract coz she’ll be putting those good looks to use! good for you mama!

  1. Viciousss June 22, 2012

    You really pushing this Rita thing huh Sam?

    Anyway I think Iggy will make it.

    Banks already beefed with everybody, had a Twitter meltdown and said she didn’t want to be called a rapper no more.

    That’s not a person who’s gonna last.

    • Marcos O’liva June 22, 2012

      i like iggy. she reminds me of the female version of eminem.

    • kelly June 22, 2012

      Iggy will make it. Watch and see how her white skin / blonde hair will make her bigger, more famous and RICHER than Azaliea Banks.

      Azealia Banks knows this – deep deep down, that is why she is feeling insecure , making songs about black women sleeping with rich white men for money. Always going on about the N word – while using it herself. Then she goes on about black men liking light skin women.

      All this is, is a result of the modern identity crisis that black women face in this cold, cruel anti black western world .

        Yeeees Here We Go Iggy’s Fans!!!!!!!

  2. Val June 22, 2012

    Great interview, made me really like her.

  3. OpD2 June 22, 2012

    her accent is the bizniz.

  4. TheFame June 22, 2012

    I really love her personality and how shes kinda relatable and shy…but korky all at once…. i really think if she stay at it she’ll be sombody to watch out for in all aspects of entertainment rather it be rapping, modeling, or just a figure people look to she has “it” to me at least

  5. JoJo (istan4rihanna) June 22, 2012

    She’ll make it because she’s in the right mind-frame . she just needs to get on some big features

  6. williNalli June 22, 2012

    I LIKE IGGY!!!

  7. Firstborn June 22, 2012

    This interview made me get into her a little bit. I never paid attention to her until now. I think she’s got a good head on her. I think she’ll make it.

      Ciao C***!

  9. Auntie_Jackie June 22, 2012

    Gosh, you know what, I wanted NOT to like her because I find her “rapping” a bit false, like she’s putting on a hood accent, but I think she’s got a great attitude. She’s cute and friendly.

    I just want her to really come out strong and let people know that she’s not trying to take over female rap from black women or overshadow anyone, and she knows she gets attention because of her skin color. She has to say, hey, I’m just trying to participate like everyone else, but she can’t without making that clear.

    Her and Banks need to be friends and get on a track together. That is all.

    • kelly June 22, 2012

      She does not need to prove nothing to black women. You sill see how white people will come out rep her hardcore; putting on front covers ; mainstream shows ; movie deals ; makeup deals ; etc. Even if she trying to steal hip hop from black women………what can black women do?

      White men rule the world and she is their woman.

      • Auntie_Jackie June 22, 2012

        I think it would help her out a bit, because, actually, groundswell support often starts with African Americans. Especially with hip-hop, rap and alternative music. Eminem was performing for all black crowds at first! It was they who lifted them up. If she wants to be lifted up, I think she just needs to make a few things clear. It’s not exactly politically correct, it just might be helpful for making her way and winning fans.

    • Perry Power June 22, 2012

      Thank you for saying a “hood accent” and not a “black girl accent” like so many ignorant people say.

      • kelly June 22, 2012

        Em was from the gutter and not female. She is a white woman. Big difference. JLO copied black music, but her support came from the latin community then mainstream.

        A pretty white girl does not need the black community. Once teen white girls in middle America get see their face in HIP HOP……$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

        I hope Azaliea Banks does not let that crush her very frail insecurity on race / light skin women / white women / black men thing.

      • kelly June 22, 2012

        @ Auntie Jackie

        You have the logic all wrong. They are gonna use Jewish honcho’s to strategize her power moves. Get black men to give her hot beats / lyrics. Get high end white fashion tastemakers, glam sqaud to Vogue her up. Sell her to teen white girls in middle America / Europe, Australia – her land.

        BOOM! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ That is how the capitalistic music BUSINESS works.

        With all that…..no cares what the black community thinks. Black community are not the ones with buying power.

    • dezi June 23, 2012

      What’s up with all this black shi*t? They ain’t never let a white female rapper in .. go look up this old school white girl rapper Tairrie B. . Nobody took her serious. They don’t even pay attention to kreayshawn. Stop hating on black female rappers just because they get more attention … even the has-been ones get more attention.

      • kelly June 23, 2012

        We will all see. Feeling insecure and jealous ?

      • kelly June 23, 2012

        Kreyshawan is ugly. Igggy is not. The other u mentioned was in the 80’s when no rapper was big. And who is they? They as teen white girls who buy any white face doing black music?

  10. IconicIggy June 22, 2012

    Great interview, thoug I aint a fan of The Breakfast Club. I agree with what Sam said, but T.I has B.O.B on his label and B.O.B has been successful. I just hope this label mess doesnt have any effect on her music releases.

    Side note: What does Rita Ora have to do with anything? Im tired of reading that basic b****** name in random articles. Iggy and Azealia are rappers, Rita is pop

  11. ARFA June 22, 2012

    love her

  12. $$$$ (Dollar$ign$kills) June 22, 2012

    I love her personality as much as I love her music!! Im glad her EP is going to be real hip-hop. Even though I loved Ignorant Art, I need real hip-hop from some lady in the game. Azealia’s sound is almost disco (and refreshing) and the other two suck ass. She just needs to drop the EP already, her fans are waiting.

  14. ENOUGH ONIKA June 22, 2012

    Refreshing to see a new and young artist who’s about the music and is real. No gimmicks, publicity stunts or w**** lifestyle for attention. True artist and humble.

  15. OpD2 June 22, 2012

    • $$$$ (Dollar$ign$kills) June 22, 2012

      The f*** are you talking about? How the hell am I self-righteous? Crawl out of my vag. I love Iggy and Azealia. I didnt even mention the other two chicks by name to avoid a potential stan war

      • OpD2 June 22, 2012

      Azealia has been doing it for years but no one gave a f*** until now. And who you callin flop when Azealia’s EP sold 3k? GTFOH

  21. The Truth June 22, 2012

    She seems to have a great personality and it’s not fake. I hope she gets the music success she wants.

  22. QueenSize June 22, 2012

    Tell the runaway slave master to f*** off. Your interscope deal fell through the cracks because you got your spot blew up b****. Interscope didn’t want TI involved because he was wrong to defend you against Azeilia. Just like Gwenith Paltrow you opened your big ass mouth to defend your ignorance instead of apologizing. Female emcees are very special women especially the successful one. You are not believable trying to be hood. Go play with Kangeroos in traffic Honky.

    • Iconic Iggy June 23, 2012

      Lmao I am laughing at your pathetic racist ass!! Keep spitting your poison while Iggy stacks her money

    • Viciousss June 23, 2012

      If you don’t want to be called n****…don’t call yourself n****.

      gwenyth should apologize while Kanye and Jay Z bop along happily calling themselves n*****? Okay.

      • dezi June 23, 2012

        Just because kanye and jay z are okay with it does it mean that other black people are. I get sick and tired of people playing the spoke – person for the entire black race STFU!

      • Viciousss June 23, 2012

        Go f*** yourself dumbass.

        Gwen was referring to Kanye/Jay Z/and Beyonce when she made that tweet and GOOD.

        I don’t like the N word but if someone uses it to describe THEMSELVES then they’ve lost the right to get mad. It’s like calling yourself s*** and then getting mad when others say the same.

        If Gwen EVER uses it to address another black person, she deserves a beat down, but the men who call themselves that? Absolutely fine with her using it. Just to show how dumb Kanye and Jay Z were in the first place with her.

  23. lola June 23, 2012

    Iggy’s rapping accent is fake and she’s so wack. Her singing about p**** is so disgusting.. as is it for all other rappers. She seems like she’s high as hell and plus she’s very inarticulate. She even admitted to not graduating high school in one of her songs. She has the look of a couture model and should pursue that instead because her career isn’t going anywhere! White…black, doesn’t matter what she is, she will not make it.

    “instead of getting into bed with T.I.” ummmm…that NEVER happened. TIP has been nowhere near her pu$$y. He is very commited and stoped cheating once he got married in 2010. Him and Iggy only have a business,bro/sis type relationship. She is his investment. He taks Tiny with him everywhere he goes…he not worried about no other chick. Speaking from personal experience with him and being around him and his family for the last 10 years. He used to be a cheater,but not anymore. Him and Iggy only see each other when it involves business..and even then nothing happens cause he always have Tiny and his family around in the studio with them or anywhere for that matter. She lives in LA as well. Only comes to Atlanta when its business related. Plus Iggy is dating ASAP Rocky..they just like to keep their relationship private.
