Default Az

Can't search AZ cause it's too short so if there's already a thread my bad.

But this guy is arguably the greatest of the 2000's. He's great and most importantly consistent.

I've only listened to Doe Or Die but liked it, guess I should check out his other stuff. AZ and Nas are similar, especially in delivery, and they were on each others' albums. To be honest, he gets kind of overlooked, but I don't know why.

Yep, AZ was the only person to guest on Illmatic. But yeah, AZ has got a lot of great stuff besides Doe or Die.

And to the person above, I've got no clue what you mean.

yeah I like the few AZ tracks that I have heard but I have yet to listen to a full album of his.

Cormega is another one that sounds like Nas. I think Cormega came out before Nas and some people say Nas bite his whole style from him.

Not sure if any of you have heard it yet since it just dropped [and is on the internetz], but Salvation is my album of the year thus far.

AZ is definitely one of my favourites.

His entire discography is worth owning physical copies of imo.

I remember being hyped when S.O.S.A/9 Lives came out, all the bootlegging and **** that went down.

The past 3 years has been a lot of AZ though. The last thing I got of him is Legendary...wasn't that this year. And there's another album G.O.D which I havent heard yet.

+1 on Cormega...did he actually come out before Nas? That's the first I ever heard that. That would mean he was around in '90/'91. ( if we talking about Nas before Illmatic came out)

yeah he was doing mixtapes and being featured on tracks back in '89

Nas gave him a shout out on "One love"

AZ and Nas should be similar considering they worked together for so long. It's a shame Nas became more popular as AZ is actually the better lyricist overall.

AZ is one of the few good gangster rappers left. I listen to some of his early stuff.

btw in case you didn't know, Nas an AZ were in a rap group together back in the mid 90's called "The Firm" they teamed up with Nature and Foxy Brown. The debut album was released on interscope/aftermath mostly produced by dre.

I enjoyed The Firm album, it got a bit of hate at the time.
