Published Dec 19, 2013Yesterday (December 18), in a fit of frustration, rapper Angel Haze leaked her entire debut album Dirty Gold to the web. The move apparently worked, as she's now been given a proper release date for the album.
Haze, who was frustrated that Island promised to release the album in 2013 before offering up a March 3 release date earlier this week, will now be treated to a December 30 release for the album. If anyone has an unfinished best of 2013 list on the second last day of the year, they'll now have this one to consider as well.
Haze took to her Twitter to offer up the following statement:
Behind every rebel is a fucking reason. Just want to say thank you guys for your support today. Thanks to those who heard the album and fucked with it. Thanks to everyone who stood up for me. My labels didn't think that I would do it, but I did. It's hard to put at risk everything I've spent this year working on but I had to for both me and you guys. No one should ever be afforded the opportunity to fuck with your dreams. REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE. They do not own you or your faith or your future and because of what you guys helped me show them. My labels have agreed to release Dirty Gold December 30th. Uk & US. (Rest of the world, we are coming for you as well). Thank you all. Night
The SoundCloud page containing all of Dirty Gold has since been removed.
