We love the CMJ Music Marathon! The annual extravaganza is an almost unparalleled modus operandi for discovering the best emerging artists. The city transforms into a music mecca for both experiencing and exploring. Take for example, the buzz generating female hip-hop artist Angel Haze. The influential website Noisey/Vice premiered the 21 year old’s new official video for “Werkin Girls” off her Reservation EP – she kills it on this track. Directed by Alex Lee and Kyle Wightman BRTHR, the chilling and creepy visual landscape debuts at a great time: right near Halloween! I bet she will get a lot of comparisons to Azealia Banks.
The New York based MC, originally from Detroit, has according to the CMJ website, also recently appeared on the BET Hip-Hop Awards. Not only that, she also executed a highly lauded delivery while performing and holding her own with radar worthy peers Childish Gambino, A$AP Rocky, and Joey Bada$$.
