30 June 2021 - Iggy Azalea ft. T.I. - Murda Bizness

Before she was all "Fancy", Iggy Azalea was establishing herself as pretty hard-edged.   We have featured Iggy Azalea on this blog several times - before AND after "Fancy".  

This song, her first collaboration with T.I., is one that we've missed, mostly because we never found a great spot to slot her in that flowed with the feeling we were going with - either in genre, or theme.  I've had this song sitting in my drafts for a couple of years.  

The song appears on her 2012 EP Glory and would serve as her debut single (although "Beat Down" came a few months earlier, that was Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas's single, not hers). For those not familiar with Steve Aoki, seeing a long-haired blonde Australian girl coming with an in-your-face style of hip hop was a bit of a shock.... but in a good way.  

Here she is performing the song live in 2013.  It is one of the first times she had ever performed live, and she absolutely brought the house DOWN.
