Who is his mother Iggy?
Australian rapper and model Amethyst Amelia Kelly aka Iggy Azalea was born under the zodiac sign Gemini on 7 June 1990 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. She began working on her way up in the music industry aged 16, when she moved to the US, and has since won a number of awards and accolades, including four Teen Choice Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, and three Billboard Music Awards.
Iggy was raised in Mullumbimby, New South Wales alongside her siblings Emerald and Mathias, by their mother Tanya who was a cleaning lady and father Brendan Kelly who was a comic artist and painter; the family lived in a house which Brendan had built by hand from mud-bricks, and which was surrounded by five hectares of land. Iggy was 14 when she began rapping with her two best friends, and this eventually led her to drop out of high school and move to the US.
Iggy moved to the US solely to become a rapper, and she initially settled in Miami, Florida; she gained attention for her provocative music videos and unique fashion sense, which blended elements of hip hop and high fashion. Her early work included mixtapes such as “Ignorant Art” and “TrapGold”, which helped her build a small fanbase for herself.
Iggy’s breakthrough came in 2014 with her debut studio album “The New Classic”; it featured hit singles “Fancy” and “Black Widow”, both of which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Fancy” featured Charli XCX and became a cultural phenomenon, solidifying her as a prominent figure in the music industry, while the single “The New Classic” earned her several award nominations and critical acclaim.
Throughout her career, Iggy has faced some controversy and criticism; she’s been accused of cultural appropriation, and has faced backlash from various artists for her insensitivity to issues of race and cultural identity.
Despite the controversies, Iggy continued to release music, including albums such as the 2019 “In My Defense” and the 2021 “End of an Era”; even though these releases didn’t match the success of her debut album, Azalea maintained a dedicated fan base and continued to explore her unique blend of hip-hop and pop.

Outside of music, Iggy’s ventured into entrepreneurship; she’s also worked as a model, signed endorsement deals and even launched her own fashion line. Her entrepreneurial endeavors have allowed her to diversify her income streams and expand her brand beyond music.
Iggy prefers to keep the details of her love life to herself, but it’s known that she dated several men prior to meeting Playboy Carti, including American rapper A$AP Rocky, American professional basketball player Nicholas Aaron ‘Nick’ Young, to whom she was also engaged, and American-Moroccan rapper French Montana.
Who is Onyx’s father Playboy Carti?
American rapper and singer Jordan Terrell Carter – aka Playboy Carti – was born under the zodiac sign Virgo on 13 September 1996, in Atlanta, Georgia USA. He’s today signed to Interscope Records, and began attracting attention in 2017, mostly with the release of his debut mixtape “Playboy Carti” in April 2017.
Playboy Carti was raised in Riverdale, Georgia and was a problematic teenager, as he preferred to be on the street rather than spending time at North Springs Charter High School. The only thing that kept Playboy Carti at school was playing basketball; he had a dream of becoming a National Basketball Association (NBA) player, but quit playing after a disagreement with his high school coach. He then began working at H&M, and nearly dropped out of high school because of the job, but still managed to matriculate in 2014; he then didn’t enroll at college, wanting to pursue a career in rap.
Playboy Carti launched his music career in the underground hip hop scene of Atlanta, gaining recognition with his self-titled 2017 mixtape, which featured his hit single “Magnolia”, which became a massive success, reaching the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. Playboy Carti’s early work was known for its minimalist, trap-influenced beats and distinctive ad-libs.
Playboi Carti’s known for his nonchalant delivery and distinctive style, which includes using ad-libs, minimalistic lyrics and a unique flow; his music’s thus had a significant impact on SoundCloud rap and mumble rap sub-genres. His work often incorporates elements of punk, trap and lo-fi hip hop, blending these genres to create a sound that resonates with a younger audience.
Playboi Carti released his first album “Die Lit” in 2018, which received critical acclaim and featured tracks such as “R.I.P.” and “Shoota”. “Die Lit” further solidified his place in the rap scene, and showcased his ability to create music with a diverse range of sounds and features.
Playboy Carti’s also known for his distinctive fashion sense; he’s become a style icon, known for his streetwear, punk-inspired outfits and unisex fashion choices. His modeling career’s included collaborations with high-end fashion brands and magazines, further setting his status as a trendsetter and influencer.
In 2020, Playboi Carti released his highly anticipated second studio album “Whole Lotta Red”; it was a departure from his earlier work as it incorporated punk rock and experimental elements. The album featured several hit songs, including “M3tamorphosis” and “Sky”.
Playboy Carti’s personal life has also garnered attention, particularly his relationship with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea; prior to meeting her, he dated American model and rapper Angela Renee White – aka Blac Chyna – and Eritrean-American rapper and model Rubi Rose Benton.
