AZ - "SUGAR HILL"
Today we revisit a classic joint from Nasir's partner in rhyme. Real talk, AZ is one of my most underrated emcees. This dude just knows how to rap. The mutli-syllabic flow is flawless. And his beat selection is top notch, he always choses beats that perfectly match his overall style and create a certain vibe. The lyrics are street, but the beats are triumphant. It's a dope juxtaposition. I like to call it that "exquisite feel-good street music for kings." Actually, I just made that up.
