Angel Haze remixes Missy Elliott’s “Gossip Folks” | Music Video

In the new video for  “Gossip Folks”, Angel Haze‘s take on Missy Elliott’s Under Construction hit (which had a memorable video of its own), the Detroit emcee’s technical talents are on display for all to see.

The simply shot clip alternates between shots of Angel rapping from a city rooftop at night-time and her dancing to the incomprehensible gossip of haters. Whilst it’s a great chance to revisit Timbaland‘s classic beat, it’s also another example of the intensity of Haze’s nature, and the way in which this feeds into her fearless style and approach.

The video is the first to come out after Haze disclosed that she suffered years of sexual abuse as a child on “Cleaning Out My Closet” and if that was the devastating centre-piece of recent mixtape Classick (which you can download here), “Gossip Folks” shows that Angel Haze achieves catharsis through rapping.
