"Going from a major to independent, it's two different zones," he said. "I was doing independent from like '05 and it's a lot of work and then every few years, the game changes itself. This [Doe or Die II] might be definitely be my last album."
AZ admitted that while the game has changed considerably, he has never lost his hunger for the game. "I actually never lost [my hunger] to be honest. It was just a matter of the stars lining up and the doors opening and that certain sound coming back into existence."
The legendary emcee also admitted that he may try a different approach with his last album.
"I might put a mixtape out and then put an album out because this is the last hurrah for me. I've got a couple of cats that come are ready to come out behind me and I've got a good starting team and so I'm just going to play the game."
