New Music: Angel Haze – “Cleaning Out My Closet” Freestyle
Angel Haze forewarns that parental discretion is advised on this touchy track. She bares her soul in this freestyle she flows through over fellow Detroit-native Eminem’s classic “Cleaning Out My Closet.” The 21-year-old rising emcee recounts in vivid detail how she was routinely
sexually assaulted (actually, let’s cut the PC terminology) raped when she was a little girl. Haze explains her motive:
I had to open my wounds. I had to bleed til I stopped it. Thanks for joining me here as I clean out my closet.
Myself and women – and I’m sure some dudes too – all over can appreciate her courage in telling her story and bringing awareness to a prevalent issue that is so often marginalized. She very well may have inspired fellow victims who are living in fear to clean out their closets too. Hit the jump to take a listen to this brave woman’s tale of turning tragedy into triumph, and keep your eyes out for her Classick mixtape dropping Oct 25.
