The mighty MC Azeem seems to be everywhere at once these days; he’s appeared on Bay Area labels Wide Hive, Bomb and others in rapid succession. For Alpha Zeta, he teams with beatmaker DJ Zeph, whose Sunset Scavenger (Wide Hive) album is still smoldering. With Azeem’s clear, insightful, rapid fire rhyme skills and Zeph’s stuttering, uptempo b-boy breaks and hot scratches conjure a dreamteam of Grandmaster Flash and J5. From start to end, A-Z kill it.
