AZ – DOE OR DIE II (DELUXE)

Everything said on the first album still stands true for this deluxe version of the album. AZ is so good, that he is able to add on 4 more tracks onto this deluxe version that are great. It is uncanny how good he is with his bars. He give us “Motorola Era” with 2 Chainz to show his versatility with working with different artists. He gives us “Stay Fly” which is trip back in time with an old school beat. AZ can do it all. This deluxe version is even better than the first and I really hope we get AZ music more often now. The game needs him so bad.

AZ – DOE OR DIE II

First off, AZ is THE most underrated MC of all time. AZ has quietly performed at a top level since his introduction. He is one of the best to come from NY and really doesn’t get all the credit that he deserves. His rhymes have been great and continue to be great. If adult contemporary hip-hop is a genre, than this album is a fantastic representation of it. His debut album Doe Or Die, went on to become an instant classic, so it’s no surprise that the second installment would be just as good. AZ’s bars are expertly crafted and refined just like a perfectly aged wine. It really is uncanny how good of an MC he is. You get the features that you need from Rick Ross, Dave East, Conway, and Lil Wayne. You also get some great hooks provided by Jaheim and T-Pain. The production is fantastic from beginning to end. It’s not really boom bap, but rather a laid back, more adult style hip hop. It’s age appropriate. The highlight of this album is the perfectly-crafted “The Wheel” featuring Jaheim. Between AZ’s bars and Jaheim’s crooning on the hook, this song is a perfect representation of how good AZ is. I really hope that AZ continues blessing us for many more years to come. He still has it in him and he really isn’t celebrated enough as one of the greats.

AZ – LEGACY

AZ drops off a mixtape of some really dope work of his to all the haters that doubt his skill. To me, he is the single most underrated MC of all time. The dude is so skilled and so talented, yet often times gets left out of conversations of the great MCs. Bar after bar, he spits perfection on here. There is no way that you could say that even drops a whack verse on here. The beats are a good mix of some original work and also some classic old school beats which AZ absolutely manhandles. There’s a reason this project is called Legacy. AZ shows us why he is amongst the best of all time and why no one can tarnish his legacy. We are all patiently awaiting that¬†Doe Or Die 2¬†next.
