    Product Details


    After beginning his career by debuting on Nas' track "Life's A Bitch", AZ released classic albums such as 1995's "Doe or Die", 1998's "Pieces Of A Man", 2001's "9 Lives" and 2002's "Aziatic". AZ was also a member of rap super group The Firm with Nas, Foxy Brown and Nature and has recorded with some of today's greatest producers such as Dr. Dre, DJ Premier, Trackmasters, Buckwild and Pete Rock. Following the success of his 2005 release "A.W.O.L.", AZ strikes back again a mere year later with a brand new studio release, "The Format", which will be released on November 7th courtesy of AZ's own label, Quiet Money. After a decade in the game, "A.W.O.L." brought AZ back to the forefront and among his rightful place as one of Hip Hop's most elite visceral lyricists; "The Format" will only build upon his already legendary status, as AZ's vision and lyrical power to paint pictures have long been celebrated by critics and fans alike. The album is a rock-solid collection of 12 new tracks, lead by the DJ Premier produced title track, as Primo and AZ rekindle the seamless chemistry they previously demonstrated on 2005's "The Come Up." Also, after producing AZ's 2005 street-anthem "New York", Emile (more recently Emile produced Obie Trice's "They Wanna Know") rejoins the fold to produce four new tracks. M.O.P.'s Lil Fame produces three tracks and also appears alongside his M.O.P. brethren Billy Danzenie and AZ on "Sit 'Em Back Slow" and Little Brother joins AZ on "Rise And Fall", which is co-produced by Little Brother's Phonte Coleman. "The Format" also contains a bonus DVD with a live concert performance and music videos.
