Iggy Azalea may have missed out some major coinage due to the cancellation of her "Great Escape" tour, but like a true boss, she has other means of keeping the cash flowing despite the tour being postponed until 2016.

As reported by MTV via Complex, Iggy is listed as a writer on the Jidenna song "Classic Man," which samples the rapper's 2014 summer smash hit "Fancy," even though she doesn't actually appear on the revamped version of her song. In response to a Twitter fan who pointed out this fact, Iggy tweeted, "thats true, i get a % of it."

"Classic Man" is quite the infectious song that borrows from Iggy's sound while also continuing the "Fancy" theme of bragging — only from the male perspective. Maybe, just maybe, the fact that Iggy's song managed to spawn yet another hot track will cause a change of heart amongst the thousands of people who wanted Iggy's Billboard Award taken away after she nabbed a trophy for Top Rap Song earlier this year.

OK, so maybe not. Meanwhile, we're sure Iggy's highly appreciative of the sample (not to mention the moolah!) especially since she spends a great deal of time defending herself against those who aren't fans of her music.
