Iggy Azalea is, well, embattled. But another rapper who quickly found pop success has offered his own advice to the "Fancy" breakout star, complete with perspective that comes from 15 years in the industry.

During a brief stop in Sydney, Nelly told the city's Daily Telegraph that Iggy should feel accomplished that artists like Eminem are taking shots at her. Calling her a "great artist" and reminding the press that he was there for the Australian rapper's earliest recording sessions, Nelly added that he has "always been cool" with Azalea.

Mr. Country Grammar began his visit by visiting Martin Place to pay tribute to the victims of the hostage situation that unfolded at a Sydney cafe earlier this month. He will be back in the country for his series of dates with Lupe Fiasco and B.o.B., which begin Jan. 8.
