Dirty Gold

With her debut Dirty Gold now available on iTunes, Angel Haze gets her feet wet with the lyric video for one of the 12 tracks, “Deep Sea Diver,” which is iTunes’ Song of the Week. The 22-year-old MC is haunted by a forbidden love on the spacey song.

“We were deep sea divers/ On another mans’ planet/ And I fell for you hard babe/ But I never quite landed/ No I can’t be with you,” she sings.

Her album was moved up from a March 4 release date after she leaked it online. “My labels didn’t think that I would do it, but I did,” said Angel. “No one should ever be afforded the opportunity to fuck with your dreams. REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE.”

Dirty Gold

Angel Haze has spent 2013 warming up for her big debut, and now a date has been set. The 22-year-old spitfire will drop her album Dirty Gold on March 4. The 12 tracks include the single “Echelon (It’s My Way)” and her personal favorite “Black Dahlia,” but no features.

In the meantime, she has also released the final version of “A Tribe Called Red,” which previously leaked in July.
