Angel Haze Freestyles About Pansexuality Over Macklemore's "Same Love"

FUSE TV - Angel Haze Freestyles About Pansexuality Over Macklemore's "Same Love"

Until her family moved from Detroit to Brooklyn when she was 15, Angel Haze was part of Greater Apostolic Faith, a Pentecostal church that didn't allow her to listen to music or wear jewelry. Obviously, a church that strict doesn't welcome gay members with open arms, so it's no surprise—but still a painful, disgusting reality—that when a 13-year-old Haze told her mother about her sexuality, she was bluntly chastised. This is the brutally personal story Angel Haze tells in her remix of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love" ft. Mary Lambert.

"At age 13, my mother knew I wasn't straight," Haze raps at the start of her remix. "She didn't understand but she had so much to say / She sat me on the couch, looked me straight in my face / And said 'You'll burn in hell, or probably die of AIDS.'"

Harsh words. Forget water to wine—it's a real-life miracle Haze turned into the self-assured, fiercely outspoken artist she is today.

As for Haze's sexuality (she's described herself as "pansexual" in the past), she rejects being pigeon-holed in this no-holds-barred freestyle. "No, I'm not gay / No I'm not straight / And I sure as hell am not bisexual," Haze spits. "Damn it, I am whoever the hell I am when I am it."

It's a powerful freestyle start to finish, but these lines stand as some of her finest yet: "F-k your religion, f--k constitutions, f--k superstitions/ There are no lakes of fire, they're here on earth / And the only thing to do is put love first/ And so I stand for the boy who died by his hand / To the sound of his father screaming, 'Woman loves man!'"
