KOCH Records is excited to announce the release of "Undeniable," the brand
new album by celebrated lyricist AZ. "Undeniable" will be released on April
1st, 2008. The new album features Ray J, Styles P and Jay Rush, with production

The first single is the title track, "Undeniable," which is hitting urban

AZ's intelligent rhymes and impressive flow have long set him apart from the
bevy of other New York emcees to emerge in the mid nineties. His lyrical
power to paint vivid pictures of the gangsta lifestyle has long been
celebrated by fans and critics alike.

The 10-year veteran first came to the greater rap community's attention
after his
stellar performance on Nas' track "Life's A Bitch" in 1994. His debut album,
1995's "Doe or Die," showcased the talented emcee's literate and thoughtful
approach to gangsta rap and shook the New York hip-hop scene to the core.

He has released a string of classic bangers like 1998's "Pieces Of A Man,"
2001's "9 Lives," 2002's "Aziatic" and 2005's "A.W.O.L." that have sold an
impressive 700,000+ units combined. His skill has put him on the level above
most, alongside his peers Nas and Jay-Z.

"Undeniable" showcases AZ at his best. His descriptive and impressive
lyrical flow
is at the forefront of this new album.

AZ’s ‘Undeniable’ This Black History Month

Thursday, January 31, 2008
By: Michael Ivey

There’s a Koch Records press release floating around that reads more like a bio of Brooklyn poet AZ’s illustrious career than a flag for his new ‘Undeniable’ LP, due February 19. This may be because the new record, distributed by Koch and featuring Ray J, Styles P and Jay Rush, is the man born Anthony Cruz’s seventh studio LP and he’s feeling the industry out again.

In a recent online video interview AZ speaks about the digital sales revolution and how he’s somewhat unsure about what works and what doesn’t as far as maximum exposure. The insightful lyricist who graced Nas’ classic ‘Illmatic’ and has since put his life on wax for anyone who will take the time to listen raps over beats by Fame, Large Professor, Nottz, Street Radio and more.
