Iggy Azalea Uses Pu$$y in My World, But I'm Still on The Fence
Her track Pu$$y is what first caught my attention. Then the next track I heard lost it. And so, I sit on the fence about the 21-year-old Australian female rapper Iggy Azalea.
The Internets is buzzing and everyone is asking the same question, is she raps next sensation. I say later for the titles. Then immediately folks will draw the line between Kreayshawn and Iggy (probably because of their complexion). Nah, I won't do that either. Why? Because Iggy is better. By far. She's however riding that same wave of internet fame like Kreayshawn, racking up a gang of twitter followers and youtube hits, and creating a buzz online, almost forcing you to take notice.
In a track like Pu$$y, the beat is hypnotic and her flow brings this unique edge, creating a sound all her own. Not since Tyler, The Creator and my homie Rob Roy (and a handful of others) have I felt that uniqueness that I feel in Iggy's cadence. Sure, there are many rap folks whose music I enjoy but every so often I'm truly captivated by a sound.
But yet, here I am, still on that fence.
I've heard Iggy Azalea Ignorant Art project. I like part of it. But for what it's worth, that's how I feel about a lot of projects. In an era of disposable music, repeatability is important. And there's definitely those repeatability moments with Iggy. But unlike I was completely sold on Rob Roy's music and slightly alienated by some of Tyler, The Creator's stuff, I'm in the middle with her overall.
So there I still sit, on that fence.
I guess I'll just keep my eye on Iggy, in this very finicky Internets world of King 'em today, burn the throne tomorrow. I'm interested in seeing whether she continues to grow or not and the sound that she ultimately cultivates. Or my ADD will kick in in a month and I'll be paying attention to something else. Only time will tell.
But until then, I'll #OccupyThisFence.
