AZ - Red Magic

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
BabyPaul, Beat Fanatik
Album:
None (Promo Single)

Decades after his classic contribution to Illmatic, AZ‘s agile, intricate flow hasn’t lost one iota of its power. Don’t believe me? You will, after hearing the East Coast mainstay work a little Red Magic on his latest promo single. BabyPaul and Beat Fanatik man the boards on this uniquely catchy street banger, flipping a sample from The Brothers Jones’ ‘77 R&B classic, Strawberry Letter 23, as AZ reminisces over his history in the hip-hop game and busts lyrical shots at his foes (including the NYPD). Craving more? Then stay tuned; Red Magic isn’t part of a larger album, but we’ll keep you posted on the rap vet’s plans as further information emerges.
