AZ is back with his new video for “The Wheel” featuring Jahiem.
Over the course of his distinguished and influential career, AZ has been nominated for a Grammy, sold millions of albums, created hit singles and lent his voice to some of Hip-Hop’s most timeless music. The last time you heard his voice was on “Full Circle,” The Firm reuniting track from Nas’ Kings Disease, which would go on to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album of 2020.
It’s been a decade since ‘The Visualiza” has graced us with an album, but AZ has been teasing fans for years that a sequel to his classic and platinum debut, Doe Or Die, was on the horizon; and now that wait is over. As Doe Or Die recently celebrated its silver anniversary (25 years), the long anticipated and awaited sequel, Do Or Die 2, is finally upon us.
After releasing the first official single, “The Wheel,” featuring Jaheim last week (which was premiered by Ebro/Apple Music), AZ returns with a fresh new visual, which is directed by Gerard Victor.
“When your features is as fresh as your sneakers you age well.” “The Wheel” features three Grammy-nominated artists with Jaheim, Kaygee, who won a Grammy for Best Rap Album for Naughty By Nature’s Poverty In Paradise in 1996 (the first album to win that award), and AZ; who was nominated for a Grammy in the ‘Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group’ for “The Essence,” featuring Nas.
“The Wheel” of life got us all on a race to the top, so be diligent and stay focused” AZ asserts. “Like B.I.G. once said “and if you don’t know, now ya know.”
AZ’s Doe Or Die 2 will be released on September 10.
