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’m Satan”). ‘Werkin’ Girls’ isn’t far behind (“Bitch I’m diarrhoea or whatever sitting under it”). And ‘Jungle Fever’ featuring Das Racist’s Kool AD shows how Haze fares on dancier numbers. The answer: well.
