This is Iggy Azalea’s summer, and we’re all just living in it. Lending her signature southern (via Australia) twang to tracks with Charli XCX, Rita Ora, and Ariana Grande, the curvaceous rapper topped charts and made her way into every possible radio station and spin class playlist in town. Headlining the standing room only venue, JBL Live at Pier 97, right off the Hudson River, Iggy will be joined by opening act, rapper (and sometimes crooner, check out “Down on My Luck”) Vic Mensa from Chicago. See why this unusual addition to hip-hop is stirring the pot.
