AUDIO: Angel Haze “Cleaning Out My Closet”

You’ve got to admire an artist that truly bares her or his soul. It’s why people love Frank Ocean’s songwriting and, more recently, why Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city has earned such critical acclaim. That kind of  honesty helped people see Eminem as one of popular music’s most important artists and much more than just a super-skilled battle emcee from Detroit.

On her version of Eminem’s “Cleaning Out My Closet”,  from her upcoming Classick tape, Angel Haze goes where few rappers have gone before– addressing her own troubled childhood where she was subject to sexual abuse. The details of the abuse and its effects on her are heart-wrenching; her resolve to tragedy to triumph is inspiring. We bet Slim Shady himself would approve.
