Iggy Azalea - Work

Work is a song by Iggy Azalea.

Composition [1]Edit

Rapper Iggy Azalea has been working hard to make a name for herself in the rap game and now she’s ready to shine. The Aussie native just premiered ‘Work,’ the first single from her upcoming debut album.


The inspiring song, produced by 1stDown of FKi, is Iggy’s testimony of her trials and tribulations to become a rapper. “I’m not hating, I’m just telling you,” she says at the start of the track. “I’m tryin’ let you know what the f— that I’ve been through.”

In the first verse, Iggy talks about her early beginnings as a 16-year-old immigrant living in Miami with no family or friends. “People got a lot to say / But don’t know a thing about where I was made / Or how many floors that I had to scrub / Just to make it past where I am from,” she raps.

In the second verse, the Grand Hustle rhymer reflects on falling in love with hip-hop and her pursuit of a rap career. “White chick on that ‘Pac shit / My passion was ironic / And my dreams were uncommon / Guess I gone crazy, first deal changed me / Robbed blind, basically rape me / Just made me madder and adamant to go at ‘em and even the score,” she spits.

On Iggy’s final verse, she thanks her mother and vows to conquer the rap game. “Thanks for my mama, I love you / One day I’ll pay you back for the sacrifice that ya managed to muscle,” she raps, adding, “I’ma do it like it’s my last / This dream is all that I need / ‘Cause its all that I ever had.”

On Twitter, Iggy thanked her fans for their support of the song. “Thanks for supporting me and im happy to have a first single about my story and not something meaningless i hope it inspires and motivates,” she tweeted.

Live performances Edit

Azalea performed the first single off her debut album, "Work", as part of her set at Rita Ora's Radioactive Tour. The song premiered on BBC Radio 1Xtra on February 11th.[2]

Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
Walk a mile in these Louboutins
But they don't wear these shits where I'm from
I'm not hating, I'm just telling you
I'm tryna let you know what the fuck that I've been through

[Verse 1]
Two feet in the red dirt, school skirt
Sugar care, back lanes
Three jobs, took years to save
But I got a ticket on that plane
People got a lot to say
But don't know a thing about where I was made
Or how many floors that I had to scrub
Just to make it past where I am from

[Bridge x3]
No money, no family
Sixteen in the middle of Miami

[Hook]
I've been up all night, tryna get that rich
I've been work work work work working on my shit
Milked the whole game twice, gotta get it how I live
I've been work work work work working on my shit
Now get this work (x4)

[Verse 2]
You can hate it or love it
Hustle and the struggle is the only thing I'm trusting
Thorough bread in a mud brick before the budget
White chick on that Pac shit
My passion was ironic
And my dreams were uncommon
Guess I gone crazy, first deal changed me
Robbed blind, basically raped me
Ran through the bullshit like a Matador
Just made me madder and adamant to go at em
And even the score
So, I went harder
Studied the Carters till a deal was offered
Slept cold on the floor recording
At 4 in the morning
And now I'm passin' the bar like a lawyer
Immigrant, art ignorant
Ya ill intent was insurance for my benefit
Hate be inconsiderate
But the Industry took my innocence
Too late, now I'm in this bitch!
You don't know the half
This shit get real
Valley girls giving blowjobs for Louboutins
What you call that?
Head over heels

[Bridge x3/Hook]

[Verse 3]
Pledge allegiance to the struggle
Ain't been easy
But cheers to Peezy for the weeks we lived out of duffle
Bags is all we had
Do anything for my Mama, I love you
One day I'll pay you back for the sacrifice
That ya managed to muscle
Sixteen, you sent me through customs so
All aboard my spaceship to Mercury
Turn First at the light that's in front me
Cause every night I'mma do it like it's my last
This dream is all that I need
Cause its all that I ever had

[Outro]
Now get this work, now get this work
Now get this work, now get this work
Working on my shit...
Now get this work, now get this work
Now get this work, now get this work
Working on my shit...|
