A few days ago, Angel Haze announced that her debut album, Dirty Gold, would be released on March 3rd. Something happened between then and now, though, because this morning, Haze tweeted out the album with a link to SoundCloud and a special message for her label, Island/Republic Records: “F*ck you.”
Here’s the full tweet barrage:
It’s so annoying that my label could tell me that if I f*cking 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 f*cking sleepless and starved crying over this sh*t. I turned down so much sh*t 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 f*ck about everything. Let these other ditsy bitches disrespect me. I turned my f*cking cheek because MUSIC IS ALL I F*CKING 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 f*cking one else. I sat my ass down and came up with this music WHEN I HAD NOTHING. Taking sh*t on the chin does not mean sitting back and letting the world beat and suck you f*cking 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 f*ck 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 F*CKING 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.
Unfortunately, as soon as the album went up, it was taken down. FREE ANGEL HAZE.
