A.W.O.L. is the fifth album by rapper AZ. It was recorded after Final Call, an album that was shelved because of a two month early leak on the Internet. While people thought A.W.O.L. would be worse than Final Call, the disc was a surprise underground hit when it came out. Because of constant record label problems, A.W.O.L. is the first AZ album which was released on his own Quiet Money Records imprint. In a couple of months after the release, A.W.O.L. 1.5, which included a bonus disc featuring a cappella and instrumental versions to the songs on A.W.O.L., was released.
