On her all-too-brief EP Survive the Summer, Iggy Azalea attempts to reassert herself at the top of the female rap pack by reminding listeners of her lyrical dexterity and delivery via six tracks that barely clock in at 15 minutes. Fortunately, with a heavy dose of confidence and aggression, she proves her basic abilities with hardcore posturing, raunchy quips, and a heavy amount of boasting, making this a listenable (if not forgettable) diversion from a rapper trying to recapture the limelight. With Azalea plagued by years of album delays and label issues, what was purported to be a full-length is just an EP, and a serviceable stopgap to buy her some time. The trap-heavy production keeps the Australian transplant firmly rooted in the South, especially on the Wiz Khalifa-assisted "OMG," which could have been a Gucci Mane joint. Unlike past hits where the dance-friendly beats and mainstream crossover potential helped propel her to Top Ten heights, they mostly take a back seat here, allowing Azalea the space to reestablish herself with pure skill. She explains the tumultuous period between releases on the title track before diving headlong into a string of ominous and threatening hardcore rap recalling earlier mixtapes. "Tokyo Snow Trip" is her darkest and most menacing offering to date, taking vocal cues from Ying Yang Twins, while the hypnotic Tyga collaboration "Kream" channels Wu-Tang with a direct sample and plenty of grit. "Hey Iggy" -- which turns Toni Basil's "Mickey" into a love letter to herself (and her derriere) -- is the lightest entry on the EP, and it still sounds more intimidating than fun. Survive the Summer presents Azalea as a hardcore rapper with little desire to court the mainstream, which was once her bread and butter. Her flow is effective and the production pops, but it's just not as enjoyable with the fun sucked out of it. © Neil Z. Yeung /TiVo

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea's rise to Island Records/Hustle Gang status was quite strange, seeing as how she was a high fashion model gone Dirty South, like some kind of Down Under mix of Lana Del Rey and Trina. Dating A$AP Rocky meant she had her rap game proper, and it was all the more tantalizing when her privileged party anthems landed some whip smart punch lines, but two tracks into The New Classic, "Don't Need Y'all" takes her from detached to jaded, making this debut album one icy cold coming-out party. By the album-closing "F**K Love," her snarled declaration "I'm already in love with myself" is a redundant credo of epic proportions, but get past the narrow "me me me" theme of the album and it's amazing how "live" it all feels. Chalk it up to cutting-edge taste as trapstep group Watch the Duck turn the cut "100" into something blog-worthy, while a Mavado appearance and an electro-dancehall production from the Invisible Men and the Arcade make "Lady Patra" the highlight to pick for Mad Decent or Diplo fans. Put the tried and true singalong "Change Your Life" with T.I. on the track list, along with the traptastic "Fancy" featuring Charli XCX, and The New Classic features some memorable moments that mash fashion, sass, high tax bracket mackin', and flashy beats. © David Jeffries /TiVo

Buyers of Iggy Azalea's debut album The New Classic may complain that the release of Reclassified is a redundant cash-in that's downright unfair, as this reissued/retitled/rebirthed LP is nothing but its predecessor with five tracks now replaced by new numbers, and mostly for the better. Much missed is the original album's electro dancehall highlight "Lady Patra" with special guest Mavado, but tantalizing privileged party anthems like "Change Your Life" with T.I. make the cut, while the massive hit "Fancy" is certainly here, so perfect in its detached sass that, like everything else, it appears in its original mix with Charli XCX and no trap music additions or extra Rick Ross verses crammed in. Speaking of trap, new number "Beg for It" featuring MØ is like electro diva Robyn went trap, and as such, climbs the highlight chart to number two, right after "Fancy." Newcomer "Iggy SZN" is wonderful schoolyard silliness and helps to add some charm to Iggy's ice-queen persona, but the pop-rap power ballad "Heavy Crown" is only here because Ellie Goulding is a required hire in 2014, although it's exciting to hear the breathy vocalist bark "but bitch I got it now!" as if she were a tweaked-out Betty Boop. In the end, Reclassified is a better effort than The New Classic and offers more bang for the buck, but this "release it until you get it right" blueprint is concerning for consumers, who now have a choice between rebuying it all or seeking out the new numbers on their own. Plus, the original said "The New Classic" right on the cover, so what kind of guidance was that? © David Jeffries /TiVo
