Iggy Azalea isn’t done mining the ’90s for nostalgia gold. The Aussie MC linked up with Keyshia Cole for a cover of The Notorious B.I.G.‘s 1997 smash “Mo Money Mo Problems” for the film The Other Woman, which stars Cameron Diaz, Nicki Minaj and Kate Upton. Kelly Price sang the Diana Ross interpolation for the Life After Death single, but Cole will take hook duties here, and it looks like Iggy has her work cut out for her as the sole MC filling the shoes of Biggie, Mase and Puff Daddy. Irv Gotti — you may remember him as the guy Ja Rule would always mention on his songs — is behind the boards for the potentially blasphemous track.
Although, on paper, it might not be terrible (and probably won’t be as lame as Rick Ross pseudo-covering “You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)” on Mastermind dud “Nobody”). But Yeezus/Beysus Christ, if this even soundtracks a scene with Diaz and Upton dancing around while drinking pinot gris or some shit, I will never forgive anyone involved.
