Angel Haze-New York

26 Sep

With the likes of Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks enjoying huge success female rappers are becoming a regular feature in the charts. However they tend to lean more towards dance music than tradition hip-hop and I’m craving a straight up female rapper. I find most of the tracks on Pink Friday quite irritating. I don’t deny Nicki’s vocal ability at all. To stand out amongst the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye West on Kanye’s Monster would say a lot but to go and own the track is insane!

Angel Haze said herself “I will say to anyone’s face I am the best out there right now”… “I put everyone in my school on to Nicki Minaj before she blew up. I was obsessed with her and I was like, ‘If she’s the best female rapper then I’ve got to be better than her”…” There’s no one out there right now who can beat me.” She just seems to have targeting a section in the market who are satisfied by a generic pop/house combination and lazy lyrics.

Azealia Banks on the other hand I like a lot, 212 is just brilliant and deserved all it’s success, but she has announced that she wants to move away from Hip-Hop and start producing more dance music. Here’s where Angel Haze comes in. Although New York is set on top of an upbeat handclap I can’t imagine it being played down my local Ivory Lounge receiving a great reception (no offence to Ivory Lounge). And this pleases me. I know people think Nicki Minaj is nasty but Angel Haze is just pure filth. Like she says in Werkin’ Girls – “I am multi facity bitch I do a tone of shit, like I’m diarrhea or whatever sitting under it”. If Angel Haze continues to produce music like this I can see her becoming a a favourite of mine.
