Feministing Jamz: New work by Angel Haze

Angel Haze had been on a bit of a hiatus after her their* last album, Dirty Gold, but she is they are back with a vengeance.

In the last few weeks, Haze has released two new tracks, presumably to be part of a new mixtape called “Back to the Woods” coming out on September 14th.

First up, “Impossible.”

Did you hear that? “I got a finger up to white America for trying to white wash my blackness/ fuck you/ you can never break me”


And as if that wasn’t enough just a couple days ago Haze released another track: “Babe Ruthless”

It does have an ouch moment – I’m not about that jumping sides line. Otherwise though, this one all unapologetic queer woman person of color confidence, which I am totally about. And with lines like the above on “Impossible,” with her their history of speaking out on difficult topics like her their own experience with childhood sexual abuse, I’m gonna give Haze the benefit of the doubt and a second chance, and hope she they seeks some political education on that.

I’m an immigrant who loves you Angel Haze. Love immigrants back!

*UPDATE: Ah! I missed that Haze came out as agender and requested they/them pronouns. My bad! Thanks for letting me know!

Verónica Bayetti Flores has spent the last years of her life living and breathing reproductive justice. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. In 2008 Verónica obtained her Master’s degree in the Sexuality and Health program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

Verónica is a queer immigrant writer, activist, and rabble-rouser.
