Iggy Azalea is a free agent. Officially.
And it seems the femcee is elated about it.
Taking to Twitter moments ago, the ‘Kream’ rapper confirmed what we had reported last month – she’s been let go from her label Island/Universal.
It’s a move she says “she” lobbied for.
The news comes after a rocky three years for the Aussie bred beauty, who has been trying to get her career back on track after it was derailed by a number of social media spats and arguable overexposure.
During said window, she prepped an album that was scrapped, released solid singles which were marred by one mess after the other, and tried to set sail on a tour that never left the dock.
On Azalea’s end, she’s levied much of that blame at former label and the restrictions imposed on her more broadly by the major system. Hence, her public-facing excitement at her free agent status.
What the future holds for the femcee remains to be seen. But she’s referenced Tyga‘s approach to being indie and the success he’s achieved as admirable. Time will tell if she can follow-suit.
