Published Mar 26, 2013Two weeks removed from SXSW, Nardwuar is still rolling out interview footage he captured out in Austin, TX. Up next is a chat with New York spitter Angel Haze.
Things don't quite line up for the Nard at first, with Haze refuting her interviewer's claims about being super into books on tape. The plaid-sporting journo still goes through with his pitch, however, and blows Haze's mind by serving up a spoken word record of Basil Rathbone reading Edgar Allen Poe, which leads her to recall getting into the Raven writer via a recording she heard in English class. If anything, our man Nardwuar is a thorough researcher.
You also get a bit of background on Haze honing her rap skills in daycare, some talk about Sidney Poitier, the connection between Childish Gambino and E.E. Cummings, and, of course, an awkward freeze frame moment between Haze and Nardwuar.
