Who is Iggy Azalea? Complex tells us she’s a young rapper lady that we should be ‘on the lookout for’. We learn in this interview that she grew up in a small town in Australia and ‘totally hated school’ and used rap as an ‘escape’ instead of socializing with her peers. While I was playing around with my new classification tool, some of Iggy’s songs tripped up the system. It’s okay that the classification is wrong but what kinds of things is a young Australian girl saying to classify her rap style as distinctly ‘black’. I decided to find out, and here is a partial list of some of the words from My World that tripped up the script.
The heavy ‘synth’ in this song makes it hard to make out some of the words but just reading the lyrics it seems that the ‘Iggy’ persona is just a combination of rap memes with nothing distinctly ‘Australian’ in the music.
