"Iggy Freestyle" Is The Late, Late Contender For Best Meme Of 2014

Igloo just got melted.
If you thought this year couldn't get any more ridiculous memes crammed into it after "crave that mineral", THINK AGAIN - there's always room to make fun of Iggy Azalea.
In an appearance on Sway In The Morning last year, Igloo was asked to freestyle and it... well, it went about as well as you'd expect.
If you can't stand to watch the secondhand embarrassment, here's a breakdown: Radio DJ Sway asks Iggy for a "hot sixteen" of freestyle rap and drops a beat, which she describes as "hood-arse" in her delightful Cali-Australian vernacular.
She faffs about for a bit with her coffee, struggles for two lines and, defeated, with a panicky T.I. hanging over her shoulder, drops a verse from single "New Bitch" instead. Womp-womp.
The video has gone unnoticed for 18 months, but with fresh Igloo criticisms making waves, Twitter and Tumblr have relished in this new-found gem and reacted in the most "lol, internet" way possible - making up her freestyle for her.

And by "making up" we mean "using popular lyrics because that's about as original as Iggy gets".
Too mean? Nah.

It's not just lyrics too; any well-known block of text can be thrown into the mix and it still looks better.
And a classic. Who knew Iggy was a #Gamergate supporter too?
