When I think of AZ one word always elbows it's way to the front. Consistency.
I really like just about everything that AZ does. He releases albums regularly. He works with hot producers and emcees but the collaborations never seem forced. He delivers authentic New York City street rap at a time when most artists are busy grabbin' the dollars and jumpin' on the pop bandwagon. This track "The Hardest" is off his upcoming album "Undeniable" on Koch Records. He trades rhymes with Styles P (who is seemingly everywhere lately) over a nicely produced banger from Large Professor. Check it out and pick up "Undeniable" when it drops in early '08 on Koch.
