After appearing alongside his cohorts from The Firm on Nas’ King’s Disease, AZ is back at it with a new single titled “Different.” Whether or not this will be on Doe or Die 2 is yet to be seen, but it’s always good to get some new music from the rapper who is three decades deep into the game.
Killer Mike and El-P connect with Royal Blood for a reimagination of “The Ground Below.” The added flavor gives it a genre-bending accent and is a welcome addition to the fantastic catalog of Run The Jewels.

If you’re still here, take the time to listen to Bussa Bus rock over DJ Premier production on “True Indeed” off the album.
