I bet a lot of y’all are surprised that I took the time to review an Iggy project. I’m SHOOK at myself for reviewing this but in all honesty……I AM VERY INTERESTED IN HEARING WHAT IGGY HAS TO SAY. Yes I said it. I am INTERESTED in hearing Iggy Azalea. I feel like is a capable rapper but she gets all the jokes. I remember a few years ago she was supposed to be the next “Nicki Minaj.” Time has passed and she is not Nicki. She is still Iggy. After a couple setbacks & delays, Iggy Azalea’s long awaited Survive The Summer EP has arrived. This is Iggy’s first project in over four years, following up 2014’s The New Classic, S.T.S. contains 6 songs in total and features guest appearances from Wiz Khalifa, & Tyga, the latter of which who appears on the breakout record “Kream.”

Iggy Azalea’s “Survive The Summer” EP contains a total of six tracks and includes collaborations from Wiz Khalifa and Tyga. Since it’s a pretty short project I’ll run through each track. The opening track “Survive The Summer” may be the best song in my opinion. This track was a PSA to her haters. It was a real clap-back claiming that those individuals will not make it through the summer. Too bad Summer is almost over anyways Iggy…. Anyways, the song wasn’t bad. Iggy brought the bars and the production was made for her.
“Tokyo Snow Trip” was a promotional single like “Kream” but I do not remember hearing it once nor anyone talking about it which is shocking because it was a decent track! It definitely is a track that some will love and others will hate, so it is a required taste, but it’s one that could be listened to on repeat. So the next track was “Kream” and y’all should know how i feel about that track already. It was the ‘Song Of The Day’ a few weeks back. The collaboration between Iggy Azalea and Tyga work brilliantly together. She adopted Tyga’s stripper anthem sound and delivered. I wouldn’t mind hearing them together again. The next three songs were weaker than the EP’s first half for sure. “Hey Iggy” is for Iggy fans. I wasn’t a fan but the song wasn’t complete trash. “Kawasaki” was kinda cool. I was digging how she sounded but it didn’t excite me. The final track “OMG” was very skip-able….. OKAY time to conclude.
This EP sounded like a lot of pre – New Classic Iggy. I’ll be honest I will not revisit this EP. I just wanted to check in on Iggy and see where she was at musically. She some what has shown some growth (i think) and has a few songs that I liked. This EP will be loved by her fans without a doubt. Iggy overall sounds good for her first project in four years.
