Angel Haze - 'Reservation EP'

This Michigan rapper is ready to take on the world

Angel Haze - 'Reservation EP'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 23, 2012
  • Producer: Le'roy Benros
  • Label: Self-released
8 / 10 Everything about 20-year-old Michigan rapper Angel Haze is exciting: Brought up in the Greater Apostolic Faith Temple. Bisexual. Internet-famous since 16 thanks to her YouTube channel, TheRealAngelHaze. She’s talented, weird and naaaaasty, like Nicki Minaj at her naaaaastiest. Now Haze has the ‘Reservation EP’ (EP? 14 tracks? Sure…), and bits of it rule. The minimal handclap-backed ‘New York’ is the sinister highlight (sample: “[i]I’m Satan[/i]”). ‘Werkin’ Girls’ isn’t far behind (“[i]Bitch I’m diarrhoea or whatever sitting under it[/i]”). And ‘Jungle Fever’ featuring Das Racist’s Kool AD shows how Haze fares on dancier numbers. The answer: well.
