KOCH Records to Release New Album by Legendary Lyricist AZ

Highly Anticipated New Album "Undeniable" in Stores April 1st, 2008; New Album Features Ray J, Styles P and Jay Rush

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - 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 by Fame, Large Professor, Nottz, Street Radio and more.

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

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.
