New and Remixed AZ

I’m so ridiculously distracted by anything other than what I’m supposed to be doing today. How can I possibly concentrate when I’ve got all this new awesome music dropping from every angle on the ‘net?!

Ok, straight into it. New sh*t from AZ. Real heads, you know what it is. The feature track here is the Moss produced I’m Ill which is rumored to appear on AZ’s Doe or Die 2 tentatively scheduled for a 2010 release. Now, I am really into this joint. Moss is a protégé of DJ Premier (there is no escaping Premo this week is there!) and he drops a superb-piano-laced-Brooklyn-style-perfect-for-AZ kinda beat. You know what I mean?

Secondly, AZ jumps on Jay Electronica’s Exhibit C. Does a nice job. Download below. I also hear on the grapevine Slaughterhouse are thinking of doing something over this beat too…

Finally, a tidy remix of The Essence (with Nas) by Baby Paul who actually did the original. This is a classy job here and I think I might actually prefer this over the original. Comes in from a totally different angle which I imagine is a pretty tough thing to do on a track you produced in the first place. (Edit: I had to go back and listen to the original after posting this and I recant my words; I still prefer the original).

With Capone-N-Norega working hard on The War Report 2 and AZ’s Doe or Die 2 well underway, I’m hoping other artists out there will follow suit in the aftermath of the successful OB4CL2.
