Rapper Iggy Azaela has got a confession, and it may not be what you think. Which possibly could explain why she has been “M.I.A.” from the music scene.
The “Fancy” rapper recently revealed on a radio show that she experienced a psychotic breakdown, and contemplated suicide last year.
“There were times where I wanted to quit life, like sometimes I would drive through the canyons to my horses and be like what if I just kept driving off the canyon,” Azaela said.
She also said that many of her industry friends told her that she has reached the end of her career and might want to consider doing something other then music.
“People in the industry that I work with were saying, this is it for your career now, what are you going to do?” Azaela said.
Azaela has gone through extreme amounts of pressure to quit her career, and received criticism for being a White female rapper from Australia who raps using “urban” slang.
She has even been slammed for using the “N-word” and other racial driven lyrics. If you remember in her 2012 song “D.R.U.G.S” she referred to herself as a “runaway slave MASTER.”
“Tire marks, tire marks/Finish line with the fire marks/When the relay starts, I’m runaway slave master.”
She later apologized for using insensitive lyrics.
Azaela is currently working on a comeback and is set to marry NBA player Nick Young this year.
