Back in September, AZ released his ninth studio LP Doe or Die II, the sequel to his iconic 1995 debut Doe or Die. The project consists of 13 song and collaborations alongside Idris Elba, Jaheim, Rick Ross, Conway The Machine, Lil Wayne, and more.

Today (Nov. 18), AZ keeps the videos coming with his latest for “Check Me Out,” a collaboration with the equally legendary Pete Rock, who lays the perfect soundbed for bars about past struggles and current successes:

“This is grown man elegance mixed with ghetto allure, fresh pair of constructs and Louie store couture, no fucks, was a juvie, poor to the core, rose up from the uzi all in the hall, Bela Lugosi since the era of Kool G, upset for lettin’ up, but they never could lose me, Gucci, could see it all inside of my face, a nigga straight, this is fate, got phenomenal taste…”

The visual for “Check Me Out” comes courtesy of Gerard Victor and keeps things pretty simple with shots of AZ and Pete Rock vibing to the music. Elsewhere, the always decked-out AZ posts up on a couch with a beautiful women, further adding to the high lifestyle feel of the nostalgic track.

Doe or Die II arrives 12 years after AZ’s last body of work Legendary. Since then, the Brooklyn legend seemed to enjoy life off of wax for the most part — fans did receive some loose cuts in that time frame, including “We Movin,” “Red Magic,” “Back to Myself” with Soshy, “Save Them” with Raekwon and Prodigy, and “It’s Time.” Prior to that, the Brooklyn veteran added to his legacy with classic bodies of work like Pieces of a Man, 9 Lives, Aziatic, and Undeniable.
