AZ – “Vintage” (prod. Rodney Hazard)

blame it on Meka March 12, 2015

The longtime and frequent rhyme partner of Nas returns, this time to provide some lyrical assistance to producer Rodney Hazard’s guitar-driven backdrop. This song will actually land on Rodney’s compilation project, Victim Volunteer, which will hit stores on March 31st with features from Rome Fortune, Jon Waltz, Doley Bernays, Denzil Porter, Ryshon Jones, Dee Goodz, and more.

A bit of backstory on this song, courtesy of AZ:

“When I got the beat from Rodney, it was called ‘Paint,’ so when I listened to it, it got me in that zone where I just had to paint poetry with my lyrics. When the record was completed, I was like damn this feels like it will be around forever, I need to call it ‘Vintage.'”

While there’s still no sign of his next solo effort Doe Or Die 2, AZ was all over Ghostface Killah’s December release, 36 Seasons.
