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.

Bang Bang! Hip hop goddess Nicki Minaj stripped down to her skivvies for the cover of her latest single, "Anaconda." Minaj is taking The Pink Print very seriously, donning a g-string and halter top bra in her favorite hue. If the song is as sexy as the artwork, we're not complaining!
