The hip-hop star will be making a cameo appearance in the seventh instalment of the car racing film franchise.
One of hip-hop's most popular female artists, Iggy Azalea, is reportedly going to make her big-screen debut in a cameo appearance in the forthcoming 'Fast & Furios 7' film, Vin Diesel recently revealed.

The 47 year-old actor let slip about Azalea's role in the movie during an interview with French radio channel Skyrock FM while doing press for 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' "Iggy Azalea, I just worked with her two weeks ago," he said when asked if he would rather dance to 'Fancy,' 'Wiggle' or 'Problem.'
"I guess you'll be the first person that knows this - we casted her in 'Fast & Furious 7,'" he added. "So I guess I'm going to be loyal to Iggy."
The seventh film in the car racing franchise is scheduled to be released on April 3rd 2015, and will also feature the returning Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black and the late Paul Walker.
Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody, were added to the cast in order to finish several key scenes after the tragic death of their sibling last November (2013). The 40 year-old actor was killed in a car crash when visiting a charity event in Valencia, California.

Last month it was also reported that Cody, who must be impressing the filmmakers while shooting 'Fast 7,' is set to star in additional films as his own character.
"Paul's character Brian O'Conner will be seen retiring, while his younger brother will join the crew," a source said at the time. "Of course, Cody isn't a replacement for Paul in any way, but the producers were really grateful that he stepped in to help them finish this last film and Cody so likeable and charming. It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name in the Fast and The Furious movies."
