Angel Haze Leaks Her Debut Album, ‘Dirty Gold,’ 3 Months Early

Angel Haze Dirty Gold

Angel Haze just pulled a Death Grips on her record label.

Taking to Twitter in the early hours of the morning, Angel Haze surprised fans worldwide by leaking her debut album three full months in advance of its scheduled release date. The reason, according to Haze, is that she grew frustrated with her label’s decision to continually delay her album even after Angel informed fans it would be out before the end of the year. You can read Haze’s lengthy explanation for the drastic move, below:

“It’s so annoying that my label could tell me that if I fucking finished my album before the summer it would be out this year. I have gone to bat for this music. I have gone to bat for myself. I have literally sat fucking sleepless and starved crying over this shit. I turned down so much shit to be sure that I could finish this album because actually wanting something to me means doing all you can to be. Sure that it’s attainable. I stopped arguing my point. Stopped giving a fuck about everything. Let these other ditsy bitches disrespect me. I turned my fucking cheek because MUSIC IS ALL I FUCKING HAVE…and I know that’s the same for some of you. I did everything I could for you. I did not promise an album and not deliver, unlike every fucking one else. I sat my ass down and came up with this music WHEN I HAD NOTHING. Taking shit on the chin does not mean sitting back and letting the world beat and suck you fucking dry. It’s knowing something is bigger. Dreams. The only thing I have in my life. Imagine having the only reason you’re alive being the very thing straining your existence. Ughhhh. So sorry to Island/Republic Records, but fuck you. I got here doing this for my fans and if you guys don’t feel the same, it won’t stop me. Idc what happens after this. They will get the music they were promised. And you guys JUST MAY LEARN TO KEEP YOUR FUCKING WORD. Since they don’t want to put it out this year, I will. Here’s the album. HERE IS DIRTY GOLD. I hope you all enjoy.”

Universal Republic has yet to comment on the leak of the album, but Haze’s initial stream has been removed from Soundcloud. Dirty Gold was originally scheduled for release March 4, but I would not be surprised if we see it bumped up a few months in light of this new development. Stay tuned for more information.
