Angel Haze has recorded a cover of Kanye West's 'New Slaves' and shared it with her fans via Twitter. Scroll down and click 'play' to give it a listen.

Haze's version keeps the chorus from West's original, but adds new verse rhymes. "My mother was raised in the era when/Crack rock lived in the veins of our heroines" goes her arresting open salvo.

The original 'New Slaves' appears on West's new album 'Yeezus', which was released on June 18 and debuted at Number One on the UK's Official Albums Chart.

Last month (June), Angel Haze confirmed on Twitter that her debut album is now finished. Haze had previously told NME that she plans to release the album, titled 'Dirty Gold', in October, though no official release date has been announced yet.

Back in May, Angel Haze joined with Iggy Azalea to call for "no more bitching" between female rappers. The pair got together to perform a cover of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s 'Otis' at Haze's London show. "No more pitting your favourite female rappers against each other," said Haze, who was recently embroiled in a Twitter battle with '212' star Azealia Banks. "We are the future of rap." "Angel's always going to have a friend in me," added Iggy Azalea. "I support her. She's a fucking star. She's the future."
