On October 10th, 1995 the rap world was blessed with a classic album from Brooklyn, NY’s legendary lyricist AZ.

Starting his career off by spitting a 16-bar verse of fire on Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch” cut off his epic debut album, Illmatic, AZ was engulfed in a bidding war for his MC services. Landing with EMI Records in 1995, he released his debut album with the club/radio hit, “Sugar Hill”.

With a stint as the co-D to Nas in Dr. Dre’s super group The Firm, AZ has gone on to make 9 (yes, 9!) solo albums. Check his resume and watch the clip to see if his 10th album, the upcoming Doe or Die 2, will be his last.
