“My Ni**as”

    The hip-hop world has known about AZ’s promised sequel to 1995’s classic Doe or Die for quite some time. And like other oft-delayed projects, we have seen some false starts for the project. But now, it appears that we could be seeing the start of the promotional run for Doe or Die II. It arrives by way of street single, the jazzy Buckwild-produced “My Ni**as.”

    You might remember that Buckwild was also behind one of the original Doe or Die cuts in “Ho-Happy Jackie.” While that track travelled a different lane lyrically, everything sounds sonically in place here on “My Ni**as.” Hip-hop heads looking for a jazz and funk-tinged record from AZ should be hitting play on the Soundcloud widget right now.
