NICE. HOW BOUT SOME C-BO???
one of the most overlooked and underrated MCs ever….only artist to ever sign a deal without recording a demo first
AZ was the only guy Nas wanted on his illmatic album…the dude can rhyme !
Word up. His first album was one of the greatest hip-hop debuts of all time. Mo Money Mo Murder was CLASSIC!!!
Hell yeah. Love this cat.
“Mo Money Mo Murder” is indeed one of my all time faves too. Also “Time”, “How Ya Livin”, and I especially love “Love is Love” with that beautiful Nina Simone sample.
@Peter Walsh – AZ is hardly the only dude ever to not record a demo and get a deal.
Beanie Sigel was signed on the spot by Jay-Z after spitting a few rhymes at him and he wasn’t even trying to be signed.
@Enigmatic Was unaware of Siegel’s story….Heard on the Stretch Armstrong show that AZ was the only rapper signed without a demo on the circuit.
thanks for posting some AZ..his verse on “life’s a B” is so sick. thought you wouldve posted “mo money mo murder” but at least slam gave him a shout out.
Does Wayne’s best verse even come close to AZ’s 5th, 6th, best? Jesus half the rappers lost in the shuffle of 90′s and early 00′s would crush 95% of the current crop…
my bad 99.5%
Man I love putting “Doe or Die” in the player. Been a while, now is as good a time as any. YES!
