‘Classick’ (Mixtape)

    Earlier this week, the usually scrappy MC Angel Haze relieved her guard to give an incredibly admirable account of the sexual abuse she suffered as a child over the beat of Eminem’s “Cleaning Out My Closet.” The track finds itself on her brand new Classick mixtape, which in’t as staggeringly personal across its remaining five cuts, but it does display Haze’s astute social awareness.

    Over more familiar and fitting beats from the likes of Jay-Z (“Song Cry”), Lupe Fiasco (“Bitch Bad”) and Lauryn Hill (“Doo Wop”), the buzzing New Yorker teaches young girls about self respect, highlights the destructive path of father-less boys and pines over a lost love. You can stream Classick below and get that work on Live Mixtapes.
