AZ New Single With 2 Chainz “Motorola Era” & ‘Doe Or Die II’ Deluxe Announcement

Over the course of his distinguished and influential career, AZ has been nominated for Grammy’s, sold millions of albums, created hit singles and lent his voice to some of Hip-Hop’s most timeless music.  

It had been a decade since AZ graced fans with an album, but his long-teased sequel, Doe Or Die II, became one of 2021’s undeniable success stories.  Featuring appearances and production from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, T-Pain, Alchemist, Conway The Machine, Dave East, Pete Rock, Bink, Buckwild, Kaygee, Heatmakerz, Rockwilder, and Baby Paul, Doe Or Die II was a mainstay at the top of the DSP charts upon its release.  

Now, to thank fans for their overwhelming support, AZ has announced a deluxe edition of Doe Or Die II, which includes four new tracks, led by “Motorola Era” featuring 2 Chainz and produced by Statik Selektah.  

Doe Or Die II had been in the making for five to six years before its release, not in the creative sense, but in my head, envisioning how I would execute it, and who would be involved.  Would the fans still appreciate it?  But once I started the creative process during the pandemic, I knew this was what fans had been waiting on.  Record by record the songs got better and better.  When release day arrived and the feedback matched the hype, I knew it was special and I had delivered the promised masterpiece” AZ commented. 

“Salute to everyone anticipating the Doe Or Die II Deluxe, I feel the love and I won’t let you down.  This is true poetry from a true dart thrower.  I’m setting off the Deluxe with a banger, “Motorola Era,” featuring 2 Chainz and produced by Statik Selektah.  It’s packed with lyrical braggadocios punchlines and designed to take you on a journey.” 

AZ’s Doe Or Die II Deluxe will be released on 1-28-22.

DJ Premier & 2 Chainz New Single “Mortgage Free”

While DJ Premier’s So Wassup Video Series continues to organically migrate to all corners of the internet, Tis the season for gifts, and there isn’t a better way to end the year then with two legends collaborating on a new single.  Displaying the chemistry they previously exhibited on PRhyme 2’s “Flirt,” (which DJ Premier, Royce 5’9,” 2 Chainz and The Roots also performed together on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon).  DJ Premier and 2 Chainz close out the year by gifting fans their new single “Mortgage Free.” 

“Mortgage Free” is the fourth single from Premier’s Single Series with Payday Records, which was announced shortly after the iconic label’s reformation in 2017.  Previous hit singles included “Our Streets” featuring A$AP Ferg, “Wut U Said” featuring Casanova, and “Headlines” featuring Griselda (Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine & Westside Gunn).

“Since 2 Chainz joined Royce and I on PRhyme 2’s “Flirt,” I returned the love back by sending him a beat while he was in the Bahamas with Statik Selektah earlier this year recording for various projects.  I sent him the beat and he sent it back to me the same night” recalled DJ Premier. “I asked him what he was using it for, and he said he would figure out which project it would go on later, since he’s working on so many different ones.  Since the end of the year was approaching, I knew that I had one more single left to release on Payday Records.  After discussing it with management, I suggested that I put it out.  2 Chainz was down and now we have another banger of Bars and Boom-Bap delivered the way you want it to sound.”

“The record is a reflection of my reality and I feel like an artist’s responsibility is to give the listener some game from time to time” 2 Chainz quips.  “So here’s my free game.” 

DJ Premier & 2 Chainz’ “Mortgage Free” is now available at all DSP’s.
