Throughout his distinguished and influential career, AZ has been nominated for multiple Grammys, sold millions of albums, created hit singles and lent his velvety voice, and street poetry to some of Hip-Hop’s most timeless music.
It had been a decade since the veteran New York rapper graced fans with an album, but his long-teased sequel, “Doe Or Die II,” became one of 2021’s undeniable success stories. Featuring appearances and production from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, T-Pain, The Alchemist, Conway The Machine, Dave East, Pete Rock, Statik Selektah, and others, “Doe Or Die II” was a mainstay at the top of the DSP charts upon its release.
Now, AZ is back with a new single entitled “This Is Why” and he has also announced that he will release his new album, “Truth Be Told,” on December 1. The Eastcoast wordsmith continues to refine and update his style with “Truth Be Told,” and the forthcoming project will also feature collaborations with Fat Joe and Pharoahe Monch.
“There is no amount of money that can measure up to the feeling of a natural heavenly bliss of euphoria,” AZ adds. “This is why I’m fly!”
After contributing production on both “Doe Or Die” and “Doe Or Die II,” AZ recruited a familiar name to produce all of “Truth Be Told,” as the legendary, and Grammy-nominated producer Buckwild handles all of the production. Aside from cooking up classics with AZ, Buckwild has also produced classics for The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Nas, 50 Cent, Diddy, Mase, Fat Joe, among others.
