Iggy Azalea On Her Impact: 'I Inspired Some Leniency In What People Accept In Hip-Hop'
Iggy Azalea is having a winning year and there's nothing anyone can do about it. The Aussie spitter documented a chunk of her victory lap in the February 2015 issue of GQ, where she spent a significant time talking about the blessings in her life right now.
She can't help but gush about her new digs with baller beaux Nick Young ("I just bought a Patrick Nagel original painting for my house the other day, so it's very homey, but I have some cool artwork that makes it seem like it's not as old-lady-ish") and prepping for her first ever arena tour, The Great Escape. She couldn't go another interview, however, without addressing all the shade that came her way after her four Grammy nominations and her overall place in hip hop.
"Having actual people who choose me, it makes me think, I have a place, and I don't care what other people have to say about it," she said. Even more importantly, Iggy's too focused on the positive impact she believes she has on the genre.
"I might be here for a long time," she said of the longevity and legacy of her career. "At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop."
Well then. Read the entire piece here.
