Amethyst Amelia Kelly (Born in Sydney, Australia) better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper. Her family later relocated to Mullumbimby, New South Wales, when she was still an infant, into a house on 12 acres that her father built by hand from mud bricks.
Her father was a painter and comics artist, while her mother cleaned holiday houses and hotels. Azalea says her father “made her look at art as a teenager”, which has always influenced her life and work. Azalea began rapping at age 14. Before embarking on a solo career, Azalea formed a group with two other girls from her neighbourhood.
