Rapper/singer Angel Haze went off on her label, Island/Republic Records, via Twitter on Wednesday morning. Apparently, executives for the record company told Haze that if she finished recording her debut studio album before the summer, they would release "Dirty Gold" this year. Haze received word from her label, however, that the album would not see light until March 2014, and so she took matters into her own hands.

"So sorry to Island/Republic Records, but f--k you," Haze wrote on Twitter. "I got here doing this for my fans and if you guys don't feel the same, it won't stop me." True to those who have supported her and helped make her dreams a reality, Haze leaked "Dirty Gold" on her Soundcloud page for all to hear. (As of this posting, however, the record has been removed from the site.)

Read her awesome Twitter rampage below.

It's so annoying that my label could tell me that if I fucking finished my album before the summer it would be out this year.

I have gone to bat for this music. I have gone to bat for myself. I have literally sat fucking sleepless and starved crying over this shit.

I turned down so much shit to be sure that I could finish this album because actually wanting something to me means doing all you can to be

Sure that it's attainable. I stopped arguing my point. Stopped giving a fuck about everything. Let these other ditsy bitches disrespect me

I turned my fucking cheek because MUSIC IS ALL I FUCKING HAVE...and I know that's the same for some of you. I did everything I could for you

I did not promise an album and not deliver, unlike every fucking one else. I sat my ass down and came up with this music WHEN I HAD NOTHING.

Taking shit on the chin does not mean sitting back and letting the world beat and suck you fucking dry. It's knowing something is bigger

Than anything you are or will ever be and sitting the fuck down and complying to get shit done. I'm sorry if I seem angry. But these are my

So sorry to Island/Republic Records, but fuck you. I got here doing this for my fans and if you guys don't feel the same, it won't stop me.

Idc what happens after this. They will get the music they were promised. And you guys JUST MAY LEARN TO KEEP YOUR FUCKING WORD.

— Ala$ka Yxxng (@AngelHaze) December 18, 2013

Since they don't want to put it out this year, I will. Here's the album. HERE IS DIRTY GOLD. I hope you all enjoy it. http://t.co/MPmWL4AhoP

All 12 songs are up now. But the soundcloud big has misnamed them. Haha. Enjoy listening to the wrong songs as well as the album lol.

Time after time, we hear artists say how labels screwed them over in this way or that way, but it's extremely refreshing to see someone like Angel Haze, a new face in the industry, give action to her words. This post will be updated if "Dirty Gold" appears back online.

UPDATE:
Angel Haze stated on Twitter that after talking with her label, they have agreed to release "Dirty Gold" on Dec. 30th in the U.S. and U.K. You can read the tweets explaining the situation below.

Just want to say thank you guys for your support today. Thanks to those who heard the album and fucked with it. Thanks to everyone who

My labels didn't think that I would do it, but I did. It's hard to put at risk everything I've spent this year working on but I had to

— Ala$ka Yxxng (@AngelHaze) December 19, 2013

For both me and you guys. No one should ever be afforded the opportunity to fuck with your dreams. REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE.

— Ala$ka Yxxng (@AngelHaze) December 19, 2013

They do not own you or your faith or your future and because of what you guys helped me show them.
