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.
