When you name your first album The New Classic you’re setting the bar really high for yourself. For your fans nothing short of a “classic” will do, but Iggy Azalea is confident enough to put it out there and she explains why in a conversation with MTV’s Hip Hop POV panel.
“I think people think of classic and they think of a Nas record or a Jay-Z record or The Chronic,” Iggy said. “What makes something classic is when you hear it and you have that moment that is a time capsule and you can remember what you were doing. When I say The New Classic, I just want to make records that give you that moment for fans that they can remember where they were when they heard it.”
Do you think Iggy will be able to deliver a classic on her debut?
