At just 27 years of age, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has already built a legacy in the world of hip-hop music. The 5-foot-10 blonde has been rapping since she was 14 years old and has gone one to produce a chart-topping album.
When Azalea’s album The New Classic topped the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, she made history by becoming the first non-American female to ever reach the number 1 spot.
There is no question that the native of Sydney, Australia is one of the hottest women in hip-hop in more ways than one. Armed with flowing blonde hair and an ample backside, Azalea has a marketable appearance to go with her musical talents. Her beauty combined with her exceptional height has also landed her a contract with a major modeling agency.
In essence, we have a gorgeous and talented blonde model who is making a fortune in the music industry. In other words, Azalea is quite a catch for any would be male suitors. One man who noticed this fact was NBA standout Nick Young.
The couple began dating in 2013 and were even engaged at one point, before ultimately calling it quits in 2016.
However, after seeing these 15 steamy photos, Young may wish things had worked out after all.

3 Good Call
The black and white outfit appears to pay homage to the old-school jail uniforms from back in the day. This playful photo shows Azalea getting into to “#Trouble.” Perhaps she’s making a phone call to get someone to post bail. While Iggy Azalea doesn’t reside in The Big House, with the level of fame and fortune she has achieved, the rap star lives in her own private big house.

1 With J-Lo
You know you’ve made it big when you're featured in a Jennifer Lopez song. Azalea seems to acknowledge that fact in her caption which simply states, “#Pinching Myself.” A song featuring J-Lo and Iggy Azalea entitled “Booty” almost seems like a no-brainer. Both women look amazing in a one-piece bathing suit that highlights the assets that inspired their song.

Lopez is an award-winning actress who is one of the most recognized celebs on the planet. J-Lo’s films have brought in $2.89 billion in gross revenue at the box office. Moreover, the international singing sensation has sold roughly 80 million albums throughout the course of her career.
