AZ, Raekwon & Prodigy Are Out To Carry On Tradition For Hip-Hop, Doe Or Die (Audio)

Hip-Hop Heads knew that April 7, 2017 was going to be a big day for the music. However, few could have expected that three supreme lyricists from the 1993-1994 class of New York City Rap would come together to do microphone damage to make today all the more special.

Marching towards his Doe Or Die 2 album (which has been in the works for almost a decade now), AZ releases the highest profile collaboration from his catalog in some time. S.O.S.A. shares the booth with Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon and Mobb Deep’s Prodigy on “Save Them.” Three MCs who arguably have been just as sharp in the last 10 years as they were in their first 10 link up to hand out justice on traitors.

AZ, Rae’, and P are loyal lyricists. These are artists who have made decisions based on their love of the game above fast paper or cheap profile, while so many peers went for the bag. Now, as careers have proven themselves, these are some of the most successful MCs of their class standing. Raekwon just released The Wild, as Prodigy opened 2017 up with Hegelian Dialectic (The Book of Revelation).

According to Spotify’s credits, AZ and his Quiet Money Records imprint also now have backing through Sony Records (Joey Bada$$, Cam’ron). This returns Tha Visualiza to the major label system for the first time since his early 2000s days with Motown Records. That, of course, led to the hit “Problems.”

It is unclear if this is Doe Or Die 2 material. It’s produced by D.I.T.C.’s Buckwild, who was highly involved with A’s 1995 debut. Both Rae’ and Prodigy know a thing or two about sequel albums, too.
