Angel Haze leaves the world of mixtapes behind her with the first taste of much anticipated debut LP Dirty Gold. “Echelon (It’s My Way)” isn’t the rawest or most hard-hitting track we’ve heard from the rising femcee — in fact, it’s initially something of a disappointment to hear her rapping about fashion like so many divas before her — but that aggressive, angry flow is unmistakable
The real hero is the explosive production, which allows the electric beat to ebb and flow like a (particularly aggressive) wave. Happily, there are also more than enough subtle hooks on the feisty jam to broaden her appeal. Listen to Angel’s latest after the jump.
