When listening to her music, no one can deny that Iggy Azalea has a good flow, even if you do not appreciate her raps, she is still a good rapper. Her music on her mixtapes is easily overlooked or pushed aside because of the content of the lyrics. If she was a singer who sang sweet songs like Colbie Caillat then she might get a little more attention. Her lyrics might be thought to be offensive to many people, but she hasn’t said anything any worse than other male rappers like Kanye West for example. The topic for rap is usually the exact same, talking about money, drugs and women. There aren’t many notable female rappers in the game today, and even those that were once famous, have lost some of their fan base just because they do not continue to release new music. Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliot and Eve are some of the female rappers that come to mind when thinking over the last two decades. Now here is this white woman who is trying to make a name for herself, but could get easily shoved under the rug just because the current definition for “female rapper” is someone like Nicki Minaj (who doesn’t rap as much anymore). With Nicki Minaj changing to more of the mainstream pop sound, there is definitely a market for a new female rapper.
