She’s already proving a very popular cover star and now here’s the video that you’ve been asking for for months.

This song is featured on her "Trapgold" mixtape that was released last year and the video was filmed during her Hunger Magazine cover-shoot. Too bad there isn't an ASAP tag, lol
Stoked to be able to share this! After we saw the cover last week, here’s the official KARLISMYUNKLE exclusive preview of Iggy Azalea photographed by Rankin for the ‘Girl, Girls’ Girls’ issue of The Hunger Magazine, on shelf tomorrow.
Below are two shots of Iggy, with a preview of the music video for the incredible Buck 65-esque song Slo (from the Trap Gold mixtape) that she filmed with Rankin for the issue plus a Q&A that touches upon being from Australia, her relationship with Rita Ora and more.
Iggy is also currently guest blogging on Hunger TV this week, so make sure you check it out here.
On her name…
“Iggy was my dog; he was named after Iggy Pop and Azalea is the street where I grew up; together they have the right amount of syllables to make the perfect name.”
On people’s surprise reaction to being a ‘white blonde Aussie rapper’…
“I think stupid people are surprised that I’m Australian. It’s a small-minded; we live in a global community, but I suppose some people still are small-minded’
On how rap music was an escapism from as early as age 12…
“I liked Missy Elliott, Outkast, Ludacris and Tupac, of course. But also I really liked people who were these caricatures, larger-than-life characters, who had crazy visuals.”
“I never felt I fitted in, so I liked seeing characters who didn’t necessarily fit in their environment. And those were the kind of artist I was drawn to”
On being friends with fellow Hunger cover star Rita Ora in a male dominated (hip-hop) industry…
“I’m friends with a lot of boys – being in the music industry as a rapper it’s all men – but I really like my friendship with Rita, because she’s a girl, and it’s just a different vibe from being stuck with boys all the time. It’s so masculine; it’s difficult. It’s a nice welcome break to be able to paint your nail, and order desserts in hotel rooms”
On having creative control in a male dominated (hip-hop) industry…
“They say I’m insane because I need to have so much creative control. They say I’m unmanageable, but I’m not. I just know what I like. I’m obsessed with it. If you can’t control it, that’s like having somebody else paint your pictures. How could you do that? I never could.”
The strangest tweet she has ever received…
“People tweet me insane stuff all the time. The creepiest tweet I was sent was someone saying they wanted to rub me and Rita Ora in mayonnaise and do a body slide across is. I thought that was kind of weird!”
