Angel Haze - Resurrection

If you thought ‘Babe Ruthless’​ was evidence of the rapper at her most fearsome and self-assured, prepare to think again.

Given that it comes packaged under a no-nonsense title like ‘Resurrection,’ it figures that Angel Haze’s return is a triumphant one, from the off. “2014, the year I died, now I’m resurrected like Jesus Christ,” she declares over erratically darting swerves of noise, akin to screeching fireflies stuck inside a hadron collider. Squelches of bass, and euphoric whoops from Angel Haze punch through relentless verses. If you thought ‘Babe Ruthless’ was evidence of the rapper at her most fearsome and self-assured, prepare to think again. This one raises the bar higher still.

‘Back To The Woods’ - Angel Haze’s 2015 project - showed Angel Haze stepping determinedly in her boldest direction yet, not just building on the foundations of ‘Dirty Gold,’ but swiping them aside and starting anew. On the evidence of ‘Resurrection’ alone, the rapper’s forthcoming second album proper (due out early 2017, probably) should cement her as a superstar.
