Angel Haze is the best female rapper going around. There, I’ve said it. If anyone thinks different, please feel free to troll me in the comment section below. At just 22 years old, the Detroit-born Haze possesses all the qualities needed to succeed in the male orientated hip-hop world. Not only is she lyrically superior to her female competition, plus many male MCs, but she raps from the heart, with the Eminem sampling, “Cleaning Out My Closet” detailing the horrific sexual abuse she suffered as a child, just one of the standout rhymes she has written over the past year.
While Azealia Banks continues to look the fool and Iggy Azalea strives to be the next Miley Cyrus, Haze is consistently releasing quality material in the lead up to her long delayed debut, Dirty Gold. Which brings us to Haze’s “30 Days Series,” finding the Eminem and Kanye West fan spitting freestyles over 30 famous hip-hop beats for 30 days. Haze has already brought the ruckus, spitting vicious rhymes over West’s “Black Skinhead” and Drake’s “Worst Behaviour,” while dropping unique freestyles over beats from Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and A$AP Ferg.
Today she dropped a seven minute freestyle over Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” and while the beat isn’t in the same league as her other choices, the subject matter and lyrical content is Haze’s best from the series yet.
Having already spoken on the lack of social impact the original had, Haze waxes lyrical about her own sexual orientation, and the rejection she felt coming out to her Mum and the abuse she was subjected to growing up. As Haze says, “Love is Love,” and the sooner we all realise this the better the world will be. Thankyou for reminding us all Miss Haze.
