Aziz’s first track Achhe Din Blues was released in March 2019. It was inspired by the lynching in Jharkhand because they were suspected of being cattle smugglers. His song 'Sab Yaad Rakha Jaayega' became the defining protest anthem of our times. Impact and popularity of the song can be gauged by the fact that even Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters recites ‘Sab Yaad Rakha Jayega' at an event.
