Yes, Iggy Azalea, the Aussie woman who has “changed the face of hip hop,” will be in the borough late spring, riding the wave of her meteoric success right into the hearts of the Brooklynites. She told TIME Magazine on Wednesday that she isn’t stressed about how long her career lasts, because she’s already cemented her legacy and changed the genre.

“At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop,” Iggy told TIME.

Legendary drummer Questlove of the Roots agreed: When discussing her success and worldwide influence, he added, “I will say that ‘Fancy,’ above any song that I’ve ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer. … We’re truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings,” he said.
