What You'll Get
- $20 for one general-admission ticket ($28 value)
Having collaborated with hip-hop superstar Nas and his fellow members of The Firm, rapper AZ has also compiled an impressive catalog of solo work. Born Anthony Cruz, the Grammy-nominated AZ found his footing on Nas’s 1994 album, Illmatic before releasing his debut album, Doe or Die. The album launched the mega hit “Sugar Hill,” whose honey-sweet, instantly recognizable hook by Miss Jones bleeds into a dream of hustling hard enough not only to achieve the requisite tropical villa staffed with solid-gold butlers but also to realize a vision of “my killa crew, more hospitable, consciously aware plus political.” Seven albums followed, with the forthcoming Doe or Die II set to feature Pete Rock and Baby Paul alongside AZ’s own tough-but-high-minded lyrics. About.com’s Henry Adaso gave him pride of place on his list of Top 50 MCs of Our Time, dubbing him “arguably the most underrated lyricist ever.”
