Not glimpsed on our pages since dropping off Showtime back in March, Los Angeles rhymesayer Azad Right steps back into the spotlight with Now I Know, single numero uno off his next independent full-length. On this introspective cut, the artist looks back on his days as a naïve up-and-comer who had just begun to get his buzz up. Jonathan Marquez‘s low-key, Chipmunk-sampled boardwork backs Azad as he reflects on his struggle to distinguish real friends from parasites, and recounts his first brush with groupie love. Feeling it? Then watch our pages for further singles leading up to the currently-unscheduled arrival of Azad’s forthcoming LP, For the Hopeful.
