Raekwon and Prodigy Join AZ in “Save Them” Video
Two months after releasing the audio, AZ is back with a new video for his single "Save Them." Mobb Deep's Prodigy and Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon round out the heavy New York line-up on this track. You can watch the clip below.
The Quiet Money Films and Smokestack Recordings-directed video shows footage of Minister Louis Farrakhan to align with the speech at the beginning of the track. Since the hook is a continuation of that speech, the video also goes back to shots of Farrakhan meeting with community members. It's a speech that speaks of eliminating traitors to their cause, often using violent imagery. The aggressive clip is a perfect complement to each MC's verse.
Each rapper provides memorable punchlines in their own right. AZ describes his upbringing with, "I'm from a genre of drugs, money-getters and ganja," while Raekwon flips acrobatic bars with, "'Chef, you turned on me'/Blowin' more C.R.E.A.M./Wipin' the Enzos off the Queens/My goons is botanical/Check the jeans." Prodigy closes it out by bragging about his wise decision to retain rights to his music, "I own my own catalog/N*gga, you gettin' pimped."
Fans of AZ are still patiently awaiting on an update to his Doe or Die 2 album. He's also been keeping up with the young guns, appearing on ASAP Twelvyy's "Motivation." Raekwon is currently on tour for The Wild album. Prodigy has slowed down on releases this year after his last album in February, Hegelian Dialectic (The Book of Revelation).
