 When God created Adam and Eve, he tore a piece of Eve's weave, and used it to make the worldwide phenomena Iggy Azalea. She was beautiful. Her gloriously gold hair, tall structure and enormous derrière had Adam and Eve envious. Her time however had not yet come, and she ascended into heaven anticipating her arrival back to planet earth. Today, she is one of the hottest female MC's on the earth, and she has already made a household name of herself, and is the only thing on the tip of everyone's tongue at this very moment. From mix-tapes to albums, Iggy knows how to rap. Within a year of her success, she managed to surpass what Lil Kim did in a decade. Her name sends Azealia Bankrup to the pits of hell, never again to be seen on the face of this earth. An upcoming collaboration with Britney Spears has the world 

on their knees, waiting to hear the masterpiece about to be brought onto this earth. 2015 will only continue to bring fame and fortune to 

the princess of rap herself, Iggy Azalea. Be ready, as records will be broken...
