Australia's Iggy Azalea, born Amethyst Amelia Kelly, is a triple-threat as a rapper, songwriter and model. The 23-year-old began rapping when she was 14, forming a rap group with two girls from her neighborhood, and at 16 she left her home for the United States in order to pursue a career as a hip-hop artist. Azaela released her first mixtape, Ignorant Art, in 2011, and her first studio album, The New Classic, in 2013. The infectious beats she brings to the music that she produces allowed her to break into the hip-hop industry as an aggressively viral artist and to go on multiple tours even at the start of her career.
