AZ - I Excel

Posted 3 years ago
Cookin Soul
Doe or Die II

Fresh off contributing guest vocals to Messing With You, the Booth debut from pop songstress Justine Skye, Big Apple veteran AZ bounces back with a fresh single of his own. I Excel, the follow-up to May’s We Movin’, is a lyrical street banger with a laid-back, retro feel. Over Cookin’ Soul‘s beat, a jazzy arrangement centered around a vocal sample from NasIt Ain’t Hard to Tell, the emcee flaunts his mic skills in boastful, tightly-wound verses. Studio album Do or Die II currently lacks a drop date, but AZ plans to release a new street album, Last of a Dying Breed II, in September. Fans can, of course, keep it locked for the latest on both forthcoming projects.
