Iggy Azalea Shows You Her “TrapGold”…
Two months following the fail heap that was “Glory”, her free EP, Iggy Azalea takes it back to her ridged production and improper voice inflections for new mixtape “TrapGold”. It would seem as though Iggy is producing more music to appeal to fans’ wants for her debut album but I’m not fooled.
Iggy is playing catch up here with TrapGold. With the sound that introduced her into the market as a crass caucasian caper, Iggy joined with T.I.’s label and quickly fizzled out all fledgling interest in her material. With her flow and lyrical content already being a topic of investigation, Iggy tries to remind you of why you fell in love with her initially here with this mixtape. Produced by early collaborators 1st Down of FKi & Diplo (also worked on rival Azealia Banks’ mixtape), Iggy has mashed up an electric utopia of southern slang and sounds. TrapGold is everything other than perfect but it offers another glimpse at a likable more sonically acceptable Iggy. If there is any inkling of potential in her career, TrapGold assisted in reaffirmation but did not completely save it. Iggy has a long way to go if she wants to compete in a completely unappealing female rap market where the artists are few and the people who care are fewer. If TrapGold served any particular purpose it shows you how good Iggy can sound on a Diplo & 1st Down beat. This is a production expo, nothing more.
