Take 2: Angel Haze's long-awaited debut album, Dirty Gold is out and available for stream-- officially this time. The album was originally slated for a March 2014 release. But Haze, believing she had been promised a 2013 date, wasn't going to have that. So, she went ahead and leaked her own album on SoundCloud. The mutiny worked; Island/Repbulic responded by moving the release date up to December 30. “My labels didn’t think that I would do it, but I did,” she later wrote on Twitter. “No one should ever be afforded the opportunity to fuck with your dreams. REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE.” Happy New Year, Angel Haze.
