Widely considered to be one of the most gifted-yet-unheralded MC's to touch the mic, Brooklyn MC AZ has an unheralded track record in hip-hop. Classic albums such as Doe Or Die, Pieces Of Man, 9 Lives, & Aziatic have combined sales of more than 1.5 million units to date. Most known for his groundbreaking appearances on Nas' hip-hop classic Illmatic and membership in the hip-hop super-group The Firm (which included Nas, Foxy Brown, and Nature), AZ has become synonymous with real hip-hop. Final Call: The Lost Tapes are unreleased, never heard before tracks that show AZ in his true hip-hop light. These songs showcase timeless flow and effortless lyricism. Final Call will be a must get for any true hip-hop fan.
