The ‘Murda Bizness’ Video By Iggy Azalea gives the disturbing child beauty pageant culture a hip-hop twist.

Directed by Alex ‘2Tone,' the video is conceptually lavish and accompanied by the catchy female rapper’s signature flow. Featuring controversial rapper T.I., this musical rendition of infant pageants is loaded with social commentary.

Azalea portrays a pageant mom who pushes her daughter to compete for a title crown. Her rendition of a pushy parent is reminiscent of TLC’s controversial reality show ‘Toddlers & Tiaras.' This is a clever twist on the song’s title, as child pageants are certainly of questionable ethics.

Aside from the thematic content of the video, Iggy Azalea’s fashionable attire is also noteworthy. She sports a variety of flawlessly tailored duds that give her an urban-mom appeal.

With fantastically thematic fashion, controversial subject matter and catchy hip-hop sounds ‘Murda Bizness’ is definitely a boundary-pushing music video.
