Perhaps no pop star has skyrocketed to fame faster in 2014 than Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea: From “Fancy” with Charli XCX to “Problem” with Ariana Grande to “Black Widow” with Rita Ora, the New Classic femcee has gone from success to success on top of the pop charts.

But at the same time, Iggy’s also fielded a substantial amount of criticism and shade for her entry into the rap game: From Nicki Minaj‘s (maybe?) shady snipe on the BET Awards to Rah Digga‘s diss to most recently, shots fired on Instagram from Snoop Dogg, not everyone is feeling the I-G-G-Y love.

Last night, Iggy opened up on Twitter about her history with rap music, where she came from (“Work” style), and her intention to globalize the craft. “As a kid loved rap but alot of lyrics were SO heavily themed around where you came from, it made me feel i didnt have a place,” she began the conversation. “i love love love to see and hear about other kids from all around the world discovering that maybe rap music is for them too. :-)”
