Iggy Azalea Explains Her Album Title, "The New Classic"

Iggy Azalea defends her album title on "Hip Hop POV."

During an appearance on "MTV's Hip Hop POV," Grand Hustle artist Iggy Azalea defended naming her upcoming album The New Classic.

“I think that people think of classic and they think of, like, a Nas record or a Jay-Z record or The Chronic,” said Azalea, who was criticized by the show's panelists for her album title choice.

The panelists believed that Azalea's title choice put undue pressure on the project to be a success.

“What makes something classic is when you hear it and you have that moment that is a time capsule, and you can remember what you were doing," she added.

"When I say The New Classic, I just want to make records that give you that moment for fans that they can remember where they were when they heard it.”
