Evaluating hip-hop’s new classic
Iggy Azalea is not the most popular figure in the hip-hop world, and she certainly isn’t helping this popularity by naming her debut album, The New Classic. She should know better than to throw around words such as ‘classic’, when promoting it, let alone including it in the title.
It’s things like this that are sure to rile up the people who like to argue about rap music on the internet, aka hercore fanbase. I think the title was a poor move from Ms. Azalea, especially because she knows damn well that this album is not the new classic. If it was all part of a grand plan to get people talking about her, then she has succeeded.
