View Full Version : AZ is madly slept on


SID

I got his entire discography from my label owner.

The guy is pure fire.

He's better then Nas in my opinion, his lyrics flow are beats are impeccable, i cant believe how badly he is slept on, it's some fucked up travesty against hip hop.

I mean Nas is a legend and a lyrical beast i'm not talking that away from him but AZ is consistent aswell as potent, he never slips, every verse is intricatly woven and delivered with a chilled hype.

Everyone knows all the foreigners will say AZ because he is less popular than Nas.


I personally think AZ is not as good as Nas. sure, he can outshine him from time to time, but overall Nas is still better.

doe or die is not better than illmatic.
not a single az album is better than the corresponding nas release.

Wtf is that a "cracker wanna be down" slideshow, they look like straight fagots.

And you just found out about AZ I was bumpin that nigga in the 90's when the shit was hot. And in IMO lyrically Nas can't touch that nigga but his flow gets redundant after listening too long.

i have do or die.....it doesnt even come close to Illmatic or any other Nas album really. AZ's production is not very good, it ruins alot of tracks, plus as someone said, he is very redundant

TeknicelStylez
01-09-2010, 04:30 PM
Yo nicky it's just like you said production is the only thing that made illmatic stand out harder, look up the remix's of all the doe or die tracks from mixtapes and you'll see how beast that nigga is lyrically.

Couple things...

Nas is better than AZ. PERIOD. If Nas had an near for beats this wouldn't be an argument. Nas is a top 2 lyricist of ALL TIME. I can only think of 2 guys that are even in the discussion of being better: Rakim & Ghost.


Having said that, AZ is underrated historically and I got him right around where I'd rank Killah Priest.

after all Tone has done, he deserves his own spot in hiphop history. ^^^^^just listen to that flow, and still he has such great diction of words, shit's incredible. plus his freesytle battling is off the hook.

=)

there are a lot of rappers that deserve recognision, but there ain't no rapper like Tonedeff. also, he's a great lyricist, AND even more, a true musician. There are too many dope rappers that don't know anything about music whatsoever....that shit needs to change. If more people would be like Tone or Monch, with the beat selection and all, rap would've been mich easier to listen to, at least from my perspective. We all know what happened with two Raekwon albums that had too many wack or boring beats.

How does that work considering Nas has released 9 albums compared to AZ's 7?

Tommy
01-10-2010, 09:25 AM
It's nothing new that AZ is criminally underrated, i'd even go as far as saying he's the most underrated ever in rap (obviously some hardcore backpacker is gonna come up and say, "no! scientific butterflyeffect is THE most underrated!"). i guess it's because he kinda came out the same time as Nas and obviously got his start on the masterpiece that is illmatic, not to mention many people just saw him as another nas-clone trying to make another illmatic.

However, i do personally feel nas is better and i enjoy nas' music a lot more than i do AZ's. doe or die is one of the greatest of all time although.

Nas has fewer joints that are amazing, while AZ has a consistent collection of only good songs. Some of Nas's work was pretty shitty, mainly cause of the beats.

AZ is a good emcee. nas is a poppy sellout today, therefore i wouldn't even make a comparison between thos two.

Nas is a better writer imo though.

AZ is slept on by the masses but not by real hip hop heads. LOL@ him being better than Nas. He would tell u himself that Nas has had the better career. Tho he has admitted to being kinda lazy,his career should have been better.

I know his cousin(tamppa also spits too. Peep him on youtube). He says AZ is workin' on a new LP. Claims some better production will be on there

SID
01-11-2010, 11:40 AM
I'm not bothered to adress every comment here.

AZ is more consistent then Nas, when Nas gets content with his flow and dosent try to push the boat thats when his lyrics and beats get sloppy.


AZ is consistent with his lyrics, flow and production, his verses are all delivered with such effortlessness but still have the impact of a iron mallet, he is slept on and should have got more limelight time then Nas, hes the better lyricist and i respect his nonchalant easy going real demeanor

The Format is Silver

Doe or Die is Gold

N.4.L is Platinum

The choons conspiracy, the secret featuring rae, fan mail, i feel for you, sugar hill remix and murder are an exampe of his mastery.
