Rapper Angel Haze spent a lot of her childhood homeless and she moved into her first house when she was 16. The time Haze spent in that house in rural Virginia served as the inspiration for her latest project, Back to the Woods. After she broke ties with her major record label—and her high-profile girlfriend—earlier this year, the critically-acclaimed mixtape marked Haze's stunning comeback.
Before Woods, Haze was already being hailed as the new MC to watch. She collaborated with Sia and was name-checked by Kendrick Lamar. In addition to her music, Haze's former relationship with her Ireland Baldwin was the frequent subject of media attention.
Now, Haze has forged ahead on her own to claim her place in rap. In this episode of Broadly Meets, we talk to Angel Haze about survival, her new mixtape, and her old flame.
