  • I will grant that some of the songs on this album are more commercialised than one would expect, but considering how Angel said a huge metaphorical F-U to her record label by releasing it early, I think she understood the game she was playing and at least made sure that commercialised or not, they were good songs
  • Several songs on this are the typical stuff you'd expect from rappers, with songs like New York and Crown speaking of how she's the best rapper et cetera and spitting lines about her rap prowess, all set to crazy beats
  • The line chicken noodle soup face from Crown is now one of my favourite new insults
  • However she can definitely go beyond that and I am waiting with high expectations

      Angel Haze is a relatively unknown rapper, although she has been garnering features on several well-known mainstream songs, such as Nick Jonas’ Numb and Mary Lambert’s Ribcage.

      Her debut album Dirty Gold however, is a mini masterpiece in itself. For people like me who enjoy rap because it’s a beautiful blend of spoken word poetry and music? Angel Haze’s honest, painfully gritty (and witty) lyrics set to great beats and sometimes soaring strings will tug at your heart and


      stay in your head for the rest of the week, guaranteed.

      I will grant that some of the songs on this album are more commercialised than one would expect, but considering how Angel said a huge metaphorical F-U to her record label by releasing it early, I think she understood the game she was playing and at least made sure that commercialised or not, they were good songs. Take in particular, the first single track, Battle Cry. Now this is obviously a song meant to take on mainstream radio, with Sia featuring vocally, elevating the song into a production. The song has a great message, one that I am sure Angel herself personally believes and her rap is fierce, heartfelt and full of her own experiences. It’s a song I personally enjoy running to as it is quite motivating!

      of how she’s the best rapper et cetera and spitting lines about her rap prowess, all set to crazy beats. The line “chicken noodle soup face” from Crown is now one of my favourite new insults.

      Others like Planes Fly, Vinyl and Dirty Gold, are softer and showcase a different side of Angel — the side that can sing as well as she raps. The transition from rapper to singer in her tracks actually feels seamless and makes her

      seem more vulnerable, the emotion in those few tracks are palpable and her word choices show that we are listening to a person with a creative soul.

      All in all, an excellent debut effort. I would like to see more from Haze that doesn’t solely focus on her (crazy) childhood experiences, but I understand that that is where most of her pain and hence, material draws from. However she can definitely go beyond that and I am waiting with high expectations.
