Welcome back, AZ. After a relatively quiet 2018, Sosa is promising an active 2019 that will culminate with his long-awaited sequel Doe or Die 2.
Rhyming over the instrumental for Kool G Rap and DJ Polo’s classic “It’s a Demo,” AZ’s flow and imagery remains sharp 25 years into his career.
My first debut came through like Jeru / Played who? Nias smoking that cake too / Passed out, got clout they rap ’bout from the trap route / Try’na close on Shaq house / Still buzzin’ / Was the king of the kitchen oven / In the spot with two coke pots like kissin’-cousins / Scratch that / Too fly for flashbacks / Got my eyes on a G5 ‘craft, all matte black / More moolah, dirt-bikes out in Dubai / F*ck 50 feet in the sky, I need a new high.
Indeed, AZ. It’s time for that new album.
