AZ recounted recording on the album:
I got on Nas' album and did the “Life’s a Bitch” song, but even then I thought I was terrible on it, to be honest. But once people started hearing that and liking it, that’s what built my confidence. I thought, OK, I can probably do this. That record was everything. To be the only person featured on Illmatic when Nas is considered one of the top men in New York at that time, one of the freshest new artists, that was big.
Since then they have collaborated on numerous songs: The Flyest , Mo Money, Mo Murder, Mo Homocide and Affirmative Action which lead to a supergroup consisting Nas, AZ, Nature and Foxy Brown called The Firm
