AZ Is Not Part Of Marley Marl’s Crew But His Video Shows He’s Still Got Juice

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Last Friday (January 18), AZ premiered some new music at Ambrosia For Heads. “It’s Time” is a fitting title for the Brooklyn, New York O.G. who has teased fans with Doe Or Die 2 throughout the decade. This June makes it an even 10 years since S.O.S.A. put an album out, and Legendary served as more of a street appetizer than a meal from a Michelin chef of lyricism.

“It’s Time” showcases A’s take on Kool G Rap & DJ Polo’s “It’s A Demo.” AZ kicks his wise, street-savvy rhymes over Marley Marl’s signature mid-’80s production. “My first debut came through like Jeru / Played who? Ni**as smoking that cake too / Passed out, got clout they rap ’bout from the trap route / Try’na close on Shaq house / Still buzzin’ / Was the king of the kitchen oven / In the spot with two coke pots like kissin’-cousins / Scratch that / Too fly for flashbacks / Got my eyes on a G5 ‘craft, all matte black / More moula, dirt-bikes out in Dubai / F*ck 50 feet in the sky, I need a new high.” The demonstration shows that certain Rap music is timeless.

In the new video, A delivers his rhymes to the camera while lampin’ in colorful bubble jackets in an artful space. The treatment is simple, but captures a vibe for an artist who frequently blends classic imagery with aspirational messages.

“It’s Time” is currently on AFH‘s official playlist.
