T.I.'s 23-year-old protégée scrubbed floors as a teen to afford a plane ticket to Miami, eventually shaking up rap circles with her 2011 mixtape Ignorant Art, which answered doubts about whether an Aussie girl could rhyme with lines as pointed as her Louboutin heels. This EP aims to convert more skeptics. "Change Your Life" offers a sturdy movin'-on-up hook and T.I. support, and "Bounce" tosses dollars into the nightclub air with Pitbull-esque glee. But it's on "Work" that Azalea adds personal heft to the underdog narrative: "White chick on that 'Pac shit/My passion was ironic and my dreams were uncommon." It's a bombshell-next-door move that demands attention.

    “Stillness Is the Move”

    Dirty Projectors | 2009

    A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
