Angel Haze
Classick [mixtape]

Hot off a very busy and successful set of showcases at the 2012 CMJ Marathon, Angel Haze has released her new mixtape Classick, continuing to shatter our expectations. Although the 21-year-old Michigan MC generally sticks to confident, upbeat tracks, she lets down her guard on “Cleaning Out My Closet,” sharing the story of the sexual abuse she faced as a child over the same beat that unraveled Eminem years earlier. There are also impressive re-interpretations of Missy Eliott’s “Gossip Folks” and Lauryn Hill’s classic “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
