New York city rap prodigy Angel Haze took to Twitter earlier today to unveil a track left over from her forthcoming debut, Dirty Gold. “Initiation” sees Haze move away from the viciousness of lead single “No Bueno”, instead delivering deeply personal poetry (“And we could press rewind/And roleplay for the screeplay/And if you want that Boulevard of Broken Dreams/I got that Green Day”) over the gentle rumble of drums and synth. Regardless of its absence from the final tracklist, it’s still a profound indication of Haze’s continued development as an artist.
According to Haze, Dirty Gold is finished. Look for it later this year via Universal Republic. In the meantime, watch the hilarious video for “No Bueno”:
