Hip Hop fans and media are taking notice of Angel Haze. The New Kid On The (Rap) Block is quickly becoming one of America’s favorite new Femcees…and her latest release is one reason why.
On the same track Eminem used to reveal the skeletons lurking in his closet, Angel Haze courageously rhymes about her painful history of sexual abuse. Vulnerable, exposed, transparent are qualities we wouldn’t have associated with Haze prior to hearing the track. Why? Well, in interviews and throughout her growing music catalog…Angel comes off more like a Gangsta than a vulnerable woman who’s overcoming a painful past.
But that’s what art is all about–exposing who you are in a unique…and beautiful way! See the lyrics of Cleaning Out My Closet below:
“CLEANING OUT MY CLOSET” LYRICS
So I’mma take you f–kers back and through the vortex of time
When I was seven envision me at the bottom of stairs
And I solemnly swear that this is the truth, no fallacy here
See I was young, man, I was just a toddler, a kid
And he wasn’t the first to successfully try but he did
He took me to the basement and after the lights had been cut
He whipped it out and sodom—d and forced his c–k through my gut
Angel wrote and recorded Cleaning Out My Closet to…
“…let go of all of it, the things that kind of haunt me in a way. I know it’s important in music to be honest with who you are, because this world is so full of lost kids who go through the same thing I went through, whose end result is ultimately suicide or drugs. And they don’t know they are strong enough to get through it. They don’t have an example. Too many people are afraid to say, ‘This happened to me and look what I did.’”
LISTEN TO THE SONG THAT HAS CRITICS SAYING…
[Cleaning out My Closet is] “one of the most bracing, intense, personal, and hard-hitting rap songs you’ll hear all year.”
