If there’s one thing that the Watch the Throne tour made me realise when it rolled into town, then it’s how much of a difference really crisp, sharp vocals make to a rap show. Kanye and Jay had it down, you could hear every line as though it were a record. Sadly Dalston’s Birthdays don’t quite seem to have mastered that specific art yet. Not that that can really be seen as a reflection on Iggy, but it does kinda spoil the show a little bit when you can’t really hear what she’s actually saying.
(I like this track, it’s like chipmunk finally decided to make a really good record, Iggy doesn’t pop up until about halfway though.)
The set it’s self was short and sweet. Short because, apparently it was like 40 minutes, felt more like 20 if I’m honest. Sweet because, well time flies when you’re having fun I suppose, and it was a fun show. Don’t get me wrong, it’s never a bad thing to leave people wanting a bit more, but for the kinda price she’s charging you can’t really get away from the fact people expect a bit more, maybe she wanted to escape back to new(ish) boyfriend A$AP Rocky as soon as possible (sorry couldn’t resist that little pun). Having said that as she likes pointing out (Check her twitter), Ms Azalea stuck around after for photo’s and all that kinda stuff. A proper popstar in the making prehaps, just a shame some of that time couldn’t have been spent on stage.
If your new to Iggy then don’t let that put you off, you should deffs go and grab a free download of her “Ignorant Art” mixtape here, and keep an eye out for the forthcoming “Glory EP” which is allegedly dropping soon.
