Alchemist Talks: Chemical Warfare, Step Brothers, Hats & Ping Pong

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Friday, September 25, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Man, every time Alchemist says something he makes me laugh my ass off. He’s probably one of the funniest guys in Hip-Hop. You should definitely watch this one for a few good laughs. AL talks about his new album Chemical Warfare (in stores now), his collaboration with Evidence (Step Brothers), the hats that he wears in the game & how he is ridiculous at ping pong. Fucking love it.

Jabari Interviews The Step Brothers

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , , on Monday, August 24, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Man, these guys are two of the dopest guys on the planet. Jabari was able to interview Evidence & Alchemist backstage at a recent Rock the Bells concert. I have to mention right away that I was laughing about 90% of the time because Alchemist is fucking hilarious. There are a lot of things touched on this interview and it gives you some great insight as to how busy both of them are. These guys have some of the best chemistry in the game, and it even shows in the interview how they feed off of each other.

EV talks about how he has been getting the respect that he set out to get, and how he is really happy at where he’s at even if the major media outlets don’t come his way. Alchemist speaks on how him and Evidence work so well together, and what it all comes down to, he also talks about his new album Chemical Warfare and how it’s going to have an elongated release. I don’t really think it’s necessary, but I’m going to say it anyways. I look forward to everything that these guys have to offer in the future.

Album Review: Alchemist, Chemical Warfare

Posted in Music Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , on Thursday, July 9, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Chemical WarfareFor the last decade (and then some), Alchemist has been making some of the best beats in Hip-Hop. Much like his last album 1st Infantry he enlists a near all-star cast of some of the best cats in the game to help him bring you some real Hip-Hop. Another thing that you may notice is that ALC’s beats are just as deviously deadly as ever before. He sounds like he has been more at home with the MPC than ever, and Al’s chemistry seems like it should be in a text book it’s so good. Continue reading

This is the shit that I like to hear. Last night EV dropped the newest Step Brothers leak via Twitter, and all I can say is that it’s a gem. Evidence and Alchemist make some incredible music together and this track is truly no different. As I have mentioned in many posts before, I really can’t wait for this album because it’s going to be raw as hell. Listen to Mr. Slow Flow and The Chemist rip apart this track. Also if you haven’t, make sure you go out and get Alchemist’s album Chemical Warfare which is in stores now.

Alchemist Talks About Upcoming Projects

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , , on Sunday, June 21, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Nodfactor.com sat down with the mad chemist himself and talked about his upcoming projects. Alchemist talks about his upcoming solo effort Chemical Warfare (July 7th), and he gives us a little bit of insight as to what kind of guests we can expect. He also talks about production vs. rhyming. After Chemical Warfare he talks about his collaborative effort with Oh No which is entitled Gangrene (I’m going crazy waiting for it to drop), and how the process worked between himself and Oh No. He also talks a little bit about his group project, Step Brothers, with Evidence and gives us some insight into their chemistry. I am telling you personally that Gangrene and Step Brothers are two of my most highly anticipated projects in a long while.

Alchemist Talks to PowerPlayed.com

Vodpod videos no longer available.
Hey guys, sorry it has been so long since you have heard from me. I, just like Erik (and most likely Ryan), am falling victim of finals at school and have been sumbmursed in school related activities constantly for the last week. Not only that, but I haven’t really found too much very interesting in music news lately so I haven’t had the urge to write.

This video however is different. I spotted this one over at 2DopeBoyz. Alchemist sat down with the people over at PowerPlayed.com to discuss a variety of issues. I love how they use the beat for “Stuck On You” by Prodigy, it’s easily my favorite beat that Al has ever produced. He talks about his influences from the east and west coast and has a nice metaphor about the body and blood of Hip-Hop. Next he talks about how DJ Muggs basically got Alchemist introduced to Mobb Deep and started that connection going. The part I love about the video is it has a clip of Al building a beat in the studio for his upcoming album, he is a genius when it comes to making beats. Make sure you check this one out, and go out and get Chemical Warfare May 19th.
