Aziz started out his musical career as a singer in the restaurant Ghalib in Kolkata. He got a break when the music director Anu Malik got him to sing the song Mard Taangewala for the movie Mard, starring Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan.
Aziz worked in the Odia film industry and sung several Odia bhajans, private albums, and Odia film songs since 1985. Some of his Odia bhajans (Lord Jagannath's Bhajans) are famous. He has performed stage shows in India and abroad, and has been nominated twice for best male playback singer award. Mohd. Aziz was very close to Laxmikant-Pyarelal; After Laxmi-Pyare, his career went down and other music directors took to other singers such as Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan.
He was one of the rare singers who can sing at the 7th note (saatwan sur) — an example being his song, "Saare Shikawe Gile Bhulaa Ke Kaho". Laxmi-Pyare recognised his potential very early and repeated him in a lot of their movies.
He did playback singing for famous actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Govinda, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Sunny Deol, Anil Kapoor and several others. In Bollywood, his duets with leading female singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Anuradha Paudwal and Kavita Krishnamurthy were immensely popular, the latter two in particular. His collaboration with the musical genius duo Laxmikant Pyarelal was most successful to the extent that he was considered an heir of Mohammed Rafi at his peak in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Aziz performed almost 2000 total songs in different Indian languages.
He tributes Mohd Rafi in one of the song in Movie Krodh.
Aziz died in Mumbai on 27 November 2018, aged 64.
