    When I hear an Alchemist beat I can always expect the it to hold its own weight as an instrumental with out the vocalist. Sometimes I scratch my head and think "How did he do that?" Alchemist is one of the most respected producers and beatmakers today.

    His trademark soul samples have always caught my ear due to his unique ability to flip old records that evoke emotion. Alchemist was part of the golden era of west coast Hip Hop having been taking under the arm of Cypress Hill and later producing for LA heavyweights Dilated Peoples. Later he shifted to the east coast and went on to produce for Nas, Mobb Deep, Ghostface Killah and Jadakiss.

    His latest release, Russian Roulette drops July 17th on Decon and features 30 plus tracks of obscure samples and sounds with features from Danny Brown, Evidence, Schoolboy Q and many others.
