Hear Angel Haze Sing Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness"

Spoiler alert: The rising rap star has a damn good voice
 / 

While former friend/feud partner Azealia Banks continues to delay her upcoming releases, Angel Haze has been steadily releasing an impressive body of work. From her heartbreaking tale of her mother's homophobia rapped over Macklemore's "Same Love" to a killer freestyle on Kanye West's "Black Skinhead," she's been on fire. 

Now the Michigan/New York rapper is showing off her more than adequate singing voice with a cover of Lana Del Rey's sleeper hit "Summertime Sadness," a song that entered the Billboard Top 10 one year after its original release.

Does Haze out-sing the sultry indie chanteuse? Nah, but she displays a voice that could easily become great with more time and training. She very well could end up in the rare realm of rappers who can spit as well as they can sing, along with Lauryn Hill, Drake and Kid Cudi.

Listen to Haze's take on "Summertime Sadness" above, and if you haven't read it already, check out her brutal takedown of a critic for "slut shaming" Miley Cyrus over her VMA performance.

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
