Decades after his classic contribution to Illmatic, AZ‘s agile, intricate flow hasn’t lost one iota of its power. Don’t believe me? You will, after hearing the East Coast mainstay work a little Red Magic on his latest promo single. BabyPaul and Beat Fanatik man the boards on this uniquely catchy street banger, flipping a sample from The Brothers Jones’ ‘77 R&B classic, Strawberry Letter 23, as AZ reminisces over his history in the hip-hop game and busts lyrical shots at his foes (including the NYPD). Craving more? Then stay tuned; Red Magic isn’t part of a larger album, but we’ll keep you posted on the rap vet’s plans as further information emerges.
