AZ says he’s got Pete Rock, Buckwild, Moss, Frank Duke, lined up for Doe Or Die 2, and he’s trying to get Premier and Kanye West. Meanwhile, The Firm 2 is underway, with joints recorded between AZ, Foxy, Cormega, and Nature – but nothing has been done with Nas yet.

Last week we showed you The 20 Most Embarrassing Sellout Moments In Hip-Hop History. On the flipside of that coin, there have been some dope moments when rappers starred in commercials for products, many times the commercials themselves more memorable than the items they were pushing. Let’s take a look….. 20. Lil Jon + Subway [cont.]

On June 30th, E1 Music will release the new album from “Wu-Tang”, entitled “Chamber Music”. That is not to be confused with The Wu-Tang Clan, it’s just labeled as “Wu-Tang”. What does this mean exactly? Lord knows, there have been tons of albums with the Wu insignia on them over the years, some used to [cont.]

Any time you talk about AZ, you have to start by bringing up his unforgettable verse on Nas’ Illimatic some 14 years ago.  While that indelible verse is a classic hip hop moment, the mere fact that you have to reference it every time says something about what AZ has been up to since then. [cont.]

AZ has not had the best of luck.  Back on Illmatic, one would have thought that he would be mentioned in the same breath as some of the peers who went on to become icons in hip-hop (most notably 2Pac, Biggie, and Nas). And why not?  Sosa has displayed various projects of his own as [cont.]

   If there ever was an award for the dopest emcee who never got the credit he deserved, it would have to go to AZ. While it can be argued that AZ has never lived up to the lofty expectations placed on him after his scathing verse on Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch”, AZ has always [cont.]

          The dreaded “P” word.  It haunts us all, but some more than others.  Potential.  It’s meant to be a compliment, but sometimes it ends up being more curse than gift.  Towards the end of Michael Jordan’s career, sportswriters across the country couldn’t wait to proclaim the “next MJ”.  Remember the list of next-in-lines?  [cont.]

By William Ketchum III Even if AZ took the title of his upcoming album AWOL literally and left hip-hop without a trace, he would still leave behind a legacy that rivals many other MCs.  Since his memorable debut on “Life’s A Bitch” from Nas’ Stillmatic, AZ has become the subject of hip-hop folklore with his [cont.]

“Life’s a bitch and then you die, that’s why we get high, cuz you never know when you’re gonna go” With those words delivered on the classic Nas debut LP Illmatic, AZ was immortalized within the history books of hip-hop music. As the only guest to appear on that seminal record, Brooklyn native AZ began [cont.]

One verse is all it took, and we were hooked. AZ’s explosive introduction on Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch” catapulted the young Crooklyn emcee from unknown to most-anticipated almost overnight. His wildly inconsistent debut, Doe Or Die, offered more promising glimpses with “Sugar Hill”, and the Pete Rock assisted “Rather Unique”. Yet, every effort that followed, [cont.]
