On Wednesday, the first trailer for ‘Jewels, Gems & Treasures‘ was released. The film, which featured Nas and 50 Cent, dated AZ‘s life.
AZ‘s legacy will be unveiled in the new documentary Jewels, Gems & Treasures. On Wednesday, fans of the Brooklyn rapper were shown a surprise trailer with cameos from Nas, 50 Cent, Buckwild and EMI executive Daniel Glass, who signed AZ to his first record deal. The documentary is also named after AZ’s 2015 book.
“AZ would say some slippery shit,” 50 says in the trailer.
“Never did I think that Nas being signed was an open door for me to get on. We both laughed–the next thing you know we [were] on the Illmatic promo tour,” AZ explained.
“A lot of cats that I know from around the world look at AZ like, ‘Yo, he’s one of the coldest rappers ever,’” Buckwild says in the trailer.
Nas makes references to AZ
Jewels, Gems & Treasures also said az will sign its first non-demo deal and explain Nas’s classic line about “Life’s A Bitch” from his 1994 debut album Illmatic. The trailer for the documentary also includes references to AZ made in the verses of Dr. Dre, Eminem and JAY-Z.
After debuting on “Life’s A Bitch“, AZ’s debut album Doe or Die was released on EMI in 1995. He later joined Foxy Brown, Nas and Nature (who replaced former member Cormega) with rap supergroup The Firm.
Jewels, Gems & Treasures’ announcement comes about six months after Doe or Die II, the long-awaited sequel to AZ’s debut album. The album features Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Conway the Machine, Dave East and more.
