Iggy Azalea Net Worth
Iggy Azalea Net Worth: Iggy Azalea is an Australian recording artist who has a net worth of $10 million. Born Amethyst Amelia Kelly on June 7, 1990, in Sydney, Australia, she is one of the few rising female MCs on the the hip-hop scene. But as a white girl from rural Australia, she's openly admitted to being something of an outsider in the world of rap. Azalea spent most of her childhood in Mullumbimby, New South Wales living humbly with her father, a painter and comic artist, and her mother, a hotel cleaner. She started rapping at the age of 14, and even formed a group with two other girls from her neighborhood. Soon, she quit the all-female band due to lack of other girls' interest. Having a burning desire to move to America, Iggy dropped out of high-school and started to work with her mother. In 2006, she came to the States, right before she turned 16. It was supposed to be only a holiday, but eventually decided to stay telling her parents she was not coming back. Azalea first stayed in Miami, Florida, followed by a brief stint in Houston, Texas and few-year stay in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2010, she settled in LA, California, where she still resides. Meanwhile, she has already met rapper Jefe "Wine-O" Wine, who became her boyfriend and subsequently signed Azalea to his independent record label, Wine-O Music. After they broke up, Wine-O still released Azalea's music via iTunes under his label. In 2011, she started to upload her freestyle videos on YouTube. Azalea's career saw major rise when her controversial songs "Pussy" and "Two Times," went viral on the video-sharing site. In September 2011, Azalea released her first full-length project, a mixtape entitled Ignorant Art. It was followed by TrapGold, her second mixtape that came a year later. In 2012, Azalea made history becoming the first non-American female rapper to be featured on XXL's annual Top 10 Freshman cover issue. Hip hop fans must be familiar with her current hit singles "Work" and "Bounce," which are part of her debut studio album The New Classic, which was released in April 2014.
