Iggy Azalea Explains Her Album Title, "The New Classic"

Iggy Azalea defends her album title on "Hip Hop POV."

During an appearance on "MTV's Hip Hop POV," Grand Hustle artist Iggy Azalea defended naming her upcoming album The New Classic.

“I think that people think of classic and they think of, like, a Nas record or a Jay-Z record or The Chronic,” said Azalea, who was criticized by the show's panelists for her album title choice.

The panelists believed that Azalea's title choice put undue pressure on the project to be a success.

“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," she added.

"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.”

    I don't get why y'all mad at her. Just cuz she's white and a rapper? Why don't y'all trash talk Eminem for that, too? Iggy was on goddamn **XXL**. Ch. If you actually think "Murda Bizness" is literally about murder, you need to get yourself checked, idiot.

  • THE NEW WACKNESS

    I knew her whole career was destined to be a flop from the very first song she put out so its funny how she wants her debut to be a classic lol

  • Agent Ace2050

    The thing is, even with wack songs people can remember when they heard it. If that's her interpretation of a classic, that deserves more discussion.

    Can't believe Tip's had Xtaci (a MUCH better female rap duo) on Grand Hustle for SIX YEARS and counting and never thinks to give 'em at least a PROMO single...meanwhile, this white chick's only been "on" for less than six months and Tip's giving her a SUPERPUSH?!

    The word clasic has been bastardized to the point that it has no meaning anymore, actually I kind of view it as a negative at this point Whenever I hear a rapper say "My new album is a classic" I brace myself for something thats gonna suck We need a new term to describe great records, these motherfuckers out here destroyed the term "Classic"
