AZ’s “It’s Time” Will Take You Back to Hip Hop’s Golden Era

AZ has been a highly-respected MC since he dropped his iconic opening verse on Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch” in 1994. View BET’s documentary on him from 2016 for a quick history lesson if you need it. A full 25 years later, the Brooklyn rapper is still dropping heat as evidenced by his latest offering, which features classic bars over a throwback Cool G Rap and DJ Polo beat from ’89. It was great to see Bronze give AZ some shine last year by using “Sugar Hill” for John Shanahan’s second song in It’s Time, which is ironically the name of AZ’s new track. Just goes to show how timeless his music is. Check out the video for “It’s Time” above if you missed it when it dropped last week.

Music + Skate x 3 Days = Tony Hawk’s Weekend Jam 2022

This event is described as “a three-day Las Vegas takeover, curated by Tony Hawk himself. Featuring skate competitions, the bands that defined skate culture, and the video games that made it all mainstream.”

There’s that, plus a Vert Alert exhibition, contests, shopping, food, a gaming lounge, movies, a street park setup, and a whole lot more at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. The package includes all that plus accommodation for the weekend and you can snag your tix right here.

The skater lineup so far is as follows:

As for music, you can expect live performances from the following:

  • Modest Mouse
  • Descendents
