Released today through New Dawn Records, the new album “Dopeliss” by rapper and producer Az Izz of legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz.

Together with Pace Won, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit, D12.  More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az has returned to the hip hop fold with his first major solo album in several years.  Largely self produced with additional contributions by Qua Z Mo, DJ 3rdRell and DJ Profluent, the guest featured artists include several of his fellow former group members and further luminaries from the local independent scene including Drift, Rube the Difference and Jaja Kenyatta.

From boom bap to hard driving electronic beats, the production maps the evolution of the east coast sound underpinned lyrically by the traditional art of storytelling, street life, aspirations and struggles.  Back in the game with another flag planted for the Garden State, essential listening.

Rapper and producer Az Izz, formerly of legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, returns with the self produced AA side single “Ghetto” b/w “Crazy” out today, the third from his new album “Dopeliss” releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd.

Together with Pacewon, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit at the time, D12.  More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az marks his arrival back with a first major solo offering in several years which blends the sounds of hip hop through the ages.       

On “Ghetto”, the classic sound of the east coast prevails through guitar hooks and blaring brass on journeys to the gritty underbelly of the city, bars portraying street tales from the hood in the daily battle between survival and aspiration. Meanwhile on “Crazy”, aptly named for these times, heavy kicks and electronica fuel the adrenaline of a chaotic Brick City ride accompanied by fellow group member D.U. 

Available to stream and download on APPLE / iTUNES, AMAZON & TIDAL Also streaming on Spotify and Soundcloud

In the article just published he speaks about growing up in the block next to the studios used by Queen Latifah, Naughty by Nature, Apache and Chill Rob G, and how his first venture into hip hop was being made to memorize rhymes by Run DMC, KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane by his uncles !

He also discusses his long time working relationship with Treach, Lords of the Underground and fellow 050 Boyz group members Prince Ak and Riq, before the conversation moves on to the construct of his new album, and how it was put together with international involvement.

Brick City rapper and producer Az Izz of the legendary Outsidaz crew is on the comeback trail with his new album “Dopeliss” releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd.

Following on from last month’s “Gettin’ It”, new single “Nunya” has been released today.  Produced by another Newark native Qua Z Mo, it’s a fuel injected electro banger powered by heavy 808 kicks with Az on the front foot from the outset.  Packing the verbal artillery, targets are placed in the sights and gauntlets thrown down through a series of combative rhymes and punchline bars “Ya whole career is a publicity stunt, how you black, ain’t kick a rap about your history once“.  Stoking the fires, pure heat for the streets.

It’s a welcome return to the hip hop fold for rapper and producer Az Izz from the legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, known for their early work with Wu Tang, The Fugees and D12 and who counted Pace Won and Rah Digga among their numbers.  His new album “Dopeliss” is out July 3rd through New Dawn Records, and the first single taken from it released today.

The self produced “Gettin’ It” features East Orange luminary Drift, and over the funked up percussive beat the pair trade claims for what’s theirs   while also bringing a little extra traditional rap beef to the table, in this case a historic tussle with Royce da 5’9″.  The accompanying video was also released today, shot in the back yards of Brick City.

Digitally distributed by Ingrooves / Universal and available from Apple, Amazon, Tidal and Spotify
