DJ Absolut nabs AZ for his freestyle series where Sosa gets busy to the Young Jeezy instrumental to “Grew Up A Screw Up.”
Nas and AZ’s chemistry in the booth is undeniable as evidenced by their body of work over the years. Despite said chemistry, the two arists have never collaborated on a full length album despite the fans pleas for it. While it probably may never happen, Datwon (Vibe EIC) and I brainstormed about putting together a mixtape as a way of imagining how an album between the two could sound. As a result Naz: the Flyest Essence was born. Featuring beats from The Alchemist, Pete Rock, Large Pro, Sid Roams, Midi Mafia, Salaam Remi and many more.
Producer MoSS hires the lyricism of AZ and Joe Budden with some added ad libs from DJ Premier for “Started” off of the upcoming album of the same name.
Of course you’ve heard Ghostface’s 36 Seasons album, right? If not, maybe this comic book style lyric video of the AZ, Kool G Rap and Tre Williams assisted “The Battlefield” will move you.
Sosa laces this Rodney Hazard production with some vintage bars. Off of Hazard’s upcoming compilation project, Victim Volunteer, which drops on March 31st.
Yet another Ghostface and AZ collaboration that you can snap your neck to. 36 Seasons is shaping up to be one hell of an album.
An absolutely menacing collaboration between AZ and Ghostface off of the upcoming 36 Season album. Just think, there are five songs total on the album featuring these two trading bars. Our only question is why they didn’t think to do this sooner?
On December 9, Ghostface will drop “36 Seasons” and there are a few collaborations with AZ on the album. Here’s one that also features Kool G Rap and Tre Williams titled “The Battlefield.”
After AZ put his own spin on the J Dilla produced “The Season,” DJ Rhude decided to put together a version with both Nas and AZ on the track.
