Whether it’s Azelia Banks labelling her “Satan in the form of mayonnaise” – or people claiming she appropriates African American speech – the Australian rapper’s relationship with racial politics has been fraught at best.
Things have once again come to a head following a recent interview with GQ. During the interview, the singer said discussions about her privilege are a “rough conversation”.

“I understand that in America there is institutionalised racism and there is privilege that comes with the colour of your skin,” she said. “That’s real. I grew up in a situation that didn’t involve any privilege and I worked really hard.

“A lot of my childhood is overlooked. People assume they know my life because Australia is a nice, beautiful country. It’s tough because I want you to acknowledge my work and that this wasn’t easy, but I also don’t want to detract from or trvialise any people of colours’ position because that’s also legitimate.”

The rapper said she grew up “dirt poor” cleaning hotel rooms with her mother and also discussed the “male-dominated” world of hip-hop. The interview comes as the popstar attempts to rehabilitate her image ahead of her serially-delayed second studio album.

Her latest single, Saviour, received some positive reviews but failed to make the charts in Australia and America.

The interview has caused backlash online, with people not taking kindly to Azalea claiming she grew up without privilege. American hip-hop artist Talib Kweli, among others, took to Instagram to slam the singer.

Last year wasn’t the easiest one for Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. The artist endured numerous setbacks, including an announcement of a tentative drop date (Jun. 30) for her sophomore album Digital Distortion, only to have it scrapped. The album also reportedly leaked in June last year, amid a frustrated tirade of Snapchats and Tweets from Iggy Iggs.

With the past in the rear view mirror however, Azalea looks to be jumping into 2018 with a kick start. The “Team” rapper announced a new single, “Savior,” on Tuesday (Jan. 9) featuring the red-hot Quavo of Migos. At a conference for Monster Products, the Aussie rapper announced she will be debuting the new single in a Super Bowl Commercial for Monster. In a clip on Twitter of the press conference, Azalea gave the new tune a release date, saying it will drop “around February 1st.”

In a reply to a fan on Twitter on Nov. 7, Iggy let the world know that the album would be renamed Surviving The Summer. She also gave long-waiting fans a taste of what is to come, dropping four tracks, all produced by Ljay Currie.

Check out the clip and Tweets below.
