Angel Haze Performs

Angel Haze’s Ballsy Move Gets “Dirty Gold” Released

The homie Angel Haze has some serious cojones. When Haze heard that her label decided to push her debut album “Dirty Gold” back until March 3rd, all hell broke loose. The Brooklyn based rapper took to Twitter last week and had this to say:

“It’s so annoying that my label could tell me that if I fucking finished my album before the summer it would be out this year. I have gone to bat for this music. I have gone to bat for myself. I have literally sat fucking sleepless and starved crying over this shit. I turned down so much shit to be sure that I could finish this album because actually wanting something to me means doing all you can to be sure that it’s attainable. I stopped arguing my point. Stopped giving a fuck about everything. Let these other ditsy bitches disrespect me. I turned my fucking cheek because MUSIC IS ALL I FUCKING HAVE. And I know that’s the same for some of you. I did everything I could for you. I did not promise an album and not deliver, unlike every fucking one else. I sat my ass down and came up with this music WHEN I HAD NOTHING. Taking shit on the chin does not mean sitting back and letting the world beat and suck you fucking dry. It’s knowing something is bigger than anything you are or will ever be and sitting the fuck down and complying to get shit done. I’m sorry if I seem angry. But these are my dreams. The only thing I have in my life. Imagine having the only reason you’re alive being the very thing straining your existence. Ughhhh… So sorry to Island/Republic Records, but fuck you. I got here doing this for my fans and if you guys don’t feel the same, it won’t stop me. Idc what happens after this. They will get the music they were promised. And you guys JUST MAY LEARN TO KEEP YOUR FUCKING WORD.”

After the lengthy diatribe, Haze then decided to leak her own damn album on SoundCloud and set the internet ablaze. Of course, her label promptly removed the album from the web after a few hours. But Haze must have struck a chord, because today, Dirty Gold was officially released via iTunes, 3 months ahead of schedule. That’s what we call New Rules, and that’s that shit we do like.
