I got the cd and every track is hot. I haven't heard a cd in a while that every song is off the hook. He has always had skills but people just sleep on him. Please check it out it is flamin'
AZ is one of the gretest MC out there besides Nas. He can really write some tight lyrics. Every track on this record is "that" great well thought through. Definitly the best album off the year if you ask me. Numbers like "Paradise" and "The essence" makesme shiver. But these are just a small bit of the album, because all the tracks except for a few could recieve "best track of the year award". Please bring us a new album Az. He needs a little respect from the hip hop industry and the world. You should really check this album out if you like Nas or Mos Def.
AZiatic is definitely a gotta have for any true hip hop fan. His lyrics are well thought out and the joint with Nas is off the hook. AZ has been one of the nicest lyricist ever since his debut on Illmatic.
the lp is off the hook. i heard it and its great. the man has a tight flow that is elaborate in telling stories; just verbalizing he can bring life to a still picture. great lp. from front to back its incredible.
AZ is the best story teller in the buisness today. Ever since the death of Biggie Smalls and Tupac(R.I.P), AZ has been the most creative and believable story teller. This album is AZ's best album since Doe or Die. The lead single, Im Back, has the4 best instrumental of the album. AZ is a strong lyrical talent, who is even better with new and improved production. After four albums AZ is just getting started. Don't count him out of the the top 10 just yet.
