(AllHipHop News) Rapper AZ is a legend on many fronts for his work in Hip-Hop as one of Brooklyn’s premier lyricists. However, as the rapper prepares for his final album, he has grand ambitions for another frontier in film making.
AllHipHop was on the scene at the video shoot for AZ’s new offering, “Save Them,” which features Prodigy of Mobb Deep and Raekwon of Wu Tang Clan fame.
“It was a dream come true for me, you know what I mean? When I was doing the joint, “Save Them,” its epic and vintage. And I knew it was the right tones that I was looking for,” he told AllHipHop’s D-Nellz. “You know, Rae is family and Prodigy put that work in. We all from the same era. Its a good look. And it was needed at the same time.”
AZ also said this was his last audio foray as a 20 year-plus veteran of the rap game, but said that the future was already bright for him.
“I’m trying to put the album together right now. Hopefully it will be out by the fourth quarter. And after that, its movies and magic. I’m doing movies after that. This is my last album, 20 years. I feel good. I accomplished what I set out to do,” he said.
As a vet, AZ had nothing but praise for the younger artists coming out.
“Everything is evolution. I love the cats thats representing for BK right now. All the “Joey Badasss” – its so many. Casanova. There so many cats that’s representing. I love what Brooklyn’s doing. I need the fellas to keep it coming.”
