The 22-year-old rap sensation also made it clear that she is still down with T.I.‘s Hustle Gang team and will appear on an upcoming compilation album.
“No. That doesn’t mean I’m no in hustle gang. Save it. Still in it. Still on the hustle gang album. Friendship doesn’t require contracts,” she wrote.
There’s still no official word on when Azalea’s album will hit stores.
“Congrats Iggy. You have a voice that needs to be heard,” tweeted Def Jam’s Senior Vice President Chris Anokute.
And he’s absolutely right! Since causing an Internet buzz two years ago with ‘My World‘ and other viral videos, she’s been making big strides in the rap game.
The tattooed rapper will follow her latest single, ‘Work,’ with another one-word track called ‘Bounce.’ A video for the song was recently filmed in India.
