The Alchemist Beat Drop @

He really is.

This the third time I’ve been lucky enough to contribute at for their ongoing Beat Drop series where they dissect the best productions from hip hop legends.

First, it was The Neptunes.

Then, it was The RZA. 

Now it’s ALCHEMIST (revisited).

As always, the guys got great writers from across the blogosphere to chip in as well as commentary from DJ Premier on “Keep it Thoro” and Black Milk* on “Hold You Down.” 

My pick was High & Mighty’s “Top Prospects” f/ Evidence and Defari from Home Field Advantage, an album that has inspired Philly rappers more than Ray Rhodes, John Street, and sour diesel combined.  Alchemist done F’d my up going on 10 years with that beat.  Go read it now!!!


*And don’t forget to cop Black Milk’s new masterpiece Tronic tomorrow in stores!!!
