“We learned a lot from the forefathers that we loved. We laid our own rules and raised the bar to keep the legacy and the culture of hip-hop going,” AZ told Billboard. “We were just speaking about the life we were living; speaking our minds with no boundaries. It was beautiful … emotion put to music.”
