AZ Shares The Stories Behind 15 Of His Best Verses

“Desperados”

Album: The Firm: The Album (1997)

AZ: “Desperados,” that wasn’t even my record, honestly. I don’t who it was. Nas record? I don’t know who record it was. We was recording that Firm album, we did that record. I just wanted it to be on my album. I don’t think it made The Firm album. I just wanted to use my album because it had everybody on it. That was on Pieces Of A Man, too. And I just wanted to catch a wreck. I already heard everybody’s verse, and I was trying to see where I fit in on it. I just went in on that record. I did what I did from my angle. Spit my thoughts on it. “Snatched up, in Supreme Court, eyes half shut/co-defendant caught a life sentence, seem him crack up/React what…” I was just trying to keep up. Do what I do.
