Angel Haze Opens Up About Her Sexuality On Macklemore's 'Same Love' Freestyle: Listen
Angel Haze takes on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' hit, "Same Love," to share her experiences with sexuality.
"Hi mom, I'm really scared right now, but, I have to," the New York rapper begins. "At age 13 my mother knew I wasn't straight/ She didn't understand but she had so much to say/ She sat me on the couch, looked me straight in my face/ She said, 'You'll burn in hell or probably die of AIDS."
Haze continues to rap on the struggle for equality, closing the seven-minute song by saying that she won't be labeled: "No, I'm not gay/ No, I'm not straight/ And I sure as hell am not bisexual/ Damn it, I am who I am when I am it."

A day before, Angel Haze took to Twitter to express hesitance of releasing the remix. With the support of her fans, she went ahead and shared the song via Soundcloud.
