Amoeba Review

04/21/2014

She can really rap. It sucks that we even need to go there, but the first thing you should know about Iggy Azalea isn’t that she was a model, or that she is a white woman from Australia, but that she’s one of the most exciting young artists out there because of her pure rap skills. The New Classic has sure-to-be radio hits like “Change Your Life,” in which she raps about eating crumpets with sailors in Australia over a big dance beat and with a typically excellent cameo from T.I. Similarly to Nicki Minaj, these hits will draw listeners in, while songs like “Walk the Line” will keep them coming back on the strength of Azalea’s flow, akin to that of another young, talented hip-hop oddball, Danny Brown, and somewhat reminiscent of Lil Wayne’s gravelly drawl and Missy Elliott’s skittering, disjointed delivery. However, unlike Minaj, Azalea can maintain interest for an entire album, as its pop tunes are solid, from the minimal (“Fancy,” with a hook sung by Charli XCX) to the club-minded (the clipped and cut-up “Bounce” is dumb fun saved by Azalea’s always-spirited rapping). The New Classic is a bit too all over the place to truly live up to its title, but it’s a fine debut that deserves its hype, one that has clearly been fashioned and refashioned over its numerous delays for maximum impact. There will probably always be haters who think a young, white, blonde girl from Australia has no business on the cover of XXL, but they probably haven’t listened to The New Classic.
