Earlier this week, Hip Hop veteran AZ spoke with SOHH and admitted that with the current state of Hip Hop, his next album Doe or Die II may be his last.

“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.”

The Brooklyn, New York veteran’s last release was 2009’s Legendary, which featured guest appearances from Sheek Louch and Hell Rell
