Iggy Azalea Admits Her Infamous Sway Freestyle Was 'Trash'

The Australian rapper's infamous freestyle has been shared online numerous times over the years.

Iggy Azalea has admitted that her notorious 2015 freestyle on Sway In The Morning was “trash” in hindsight.

The freestyle, which found Azalea spitting memorable bars such as: “Better check my tax bracket/ What you think was gonna happen/ Naggin’ now he’s leaving and y’all broke up like Mad Men,” was met with critical disdain from the jump, with one memorable caller known as “John From Tennessee” allegedly calling in to Sway’s radio show to call Azalea out for her tepid bars.

“That shit is fucking trash dog, get the fuck off the airwaves!” John said at the time. Obviously, Azalea’s career carried on, and the lyrics even ended up on her song “New Bitch” off her debut The New Classic, but the Twitter account Hip Hop Moments took a minute to remind people of John’s disrespect.

“Never forget when John from Tennessee violated Iggy Azalea’s freestyle,” the account wrote on Twitter. The New Classic rapper responded, and confirmed that her first appearance on Sway wasn’t her finest moment.

“Never forget that this is a literal EDIT & whilst this verse is indeed trash, John from Tennessee has never called me,” Azalea wrote, adding: “The call was to lil Debbie if anyones curious about who John called or where this originated.”

Lil Debbie confirmed Azalea’s account, writing: “Yea he called in for me but you’re right he could’ve called in for that verse you spit.” A fan then commented on how the Azalea cut of the video often reappears online.

“Same because it’s always to shit on me but it doesn’t upset me because it never actually happened so why would I care? Lmaoooooo,”
