Angel Haze, the talented young rapper with a whole lot of issues, has an uncanny knack for scoring sweet opening slots: opening for Cat Power tomorrow at Terminal 5, then for Major Lazer throughout March. If that first pairing seems a little strange, this new remix will make it a little less so. Haze opens Ryan Hemsworth's tickling, hip-hoppy take on Cat Power's best song on Sun, “Manhattan.” The remix premiered on BBC Radio1 this weekend, then was uploaded by an enterprising radio-ripper, available for download below. When Hemsworth was here last month, he said the remix was official, and that he got the gig thanks to his Frank Ocean bootleg from last summer.
