Angel Haze has let slip an outtake from her forthcoming debut studio album Dirty Gold. Indirectly citing Drake's #YOLO doctrine, she wrote on Twitter, "I'm probably gonna get killed for what I'm about to do. But who cares? One life, right." She then added, "Gonna give you guys something I recorded in January. That didn't make the album. The vocals are raw. So fuck with me on time." The resulting leak is dubbed "Initiation," though it has little to do with the similarly named Latin-spewing Mykki Blanco track shared last month. The production is dark and brooding indeed, but Haze's flow sounds inspired by Kendrick Lamar as she rhymes about pills, faith, and love. Also, she says this, which is kinda weird: "If you on that Boulevard of Broken Dreams then I got that Green Day." 

In related news, the New york-based MC revealed in a later tweet that the album has been done for two weeks. So what's Angel up to now that she's got some free time on her hands?
