iggy azalea film soundtracks new classic
You've got some work on film soundtracks coming up this year. Have you worked on movies before?
No, I never have. But I've always been interested in movie scores and movie soundtracks, and I think a good soundtrack can make the movie and a bad score can ruin it. I saw Pharrell doing "Happy"—I wouldn't compare myself to that, because he's a genius and I don't think I could ever do a whole movie—but it did make me think, "Hmm, that's cool that he's making original music for film, and I would like to make original music and sing songs for films." So I got in touch with some people over at Sony Pictures and different people like that about making it happen. It's different.

Is it easier to write for films?
It's really fun, I've been enjoying it. And I think it's also less pressure. Less worrying about what people would think if I was saying this. Like, I wrote a song about baseball. [Laughs] I did, and it was cool. I googled all the different home runs, and I googled baseball things, what they mean. It's just fun; you write about stuff you wouldn't usually write about. I like that. It's fun, it's carefree. I don't have to worry about it too much, I can have fun with it. I enjoyed that a lot, and I'm definitely trying to do more things like that.

I'm sensing a theme here, with the music videos based on movies, starting to work on movie soundtracks...
Yeah, I'm really getting into it. [Laughs] I love visuals, so I can't help myself.

Eminem, “Careful What You Wish For”
Producer: Eminem
Album: Relapse
Lyric: “The Marshall Mathers was a classic, The Eminem Show was fantastic/But Encore just didn't have the caliber to match it/I guess enough time just ain't passed yet/A couple more years that shit'll be Illmatic”
Why It’s Dope: Eminem is talking about how his albums are rated by critics. He knows that his previous albums have been rated high, but critics weren’t as generous with his Encore album. What Eminem is saying here, though, is that after some time, when critics go back to re-rate it, they will rate it on the same level as Illmatic, which is synonymous of a classic. It’s safe to say though, even after a few years since rapping that line, Encore isn’t in the same stratosphere as Illmatic.
