As we reported back in August, AZ came to Costa Rica to film the video for his new single “Back To Myself” with guest artist SoShy, ahead of the 20-year anniversary release of his forthcoming album “Doe or Die, Vol. 2.”Directed by Alexander Berberich, the “Back To Myself” video cuts between Manuel Antonio, San José’s Parque Morazán and a mansion in the hills. It’s an appropriate setting for the introspective 43-year-old AZ, who in addition to working on “Doe or Die, Vol. 2” has launched an online store and released his new memoir, “Jewels, Gems & Treasures.” From left, Pete Oakley, AZ and Alexander Berberich shoot “Back To Myself” in San José’s Parque Morazán last August. The video debuted earlier this month. Alberto Font/The Tico TimesAZ has promised us he’ll be back in Costa Rica in 2016, hopefully around the time “Doe or Die 2” drops. In the meantime, check out his new online store, and of course, his new video, pura vida-style. Leave us your comments below.
