The guys from Akai (@Akai_Pro) sit down with the one and only, Alchemist.
The Alchemist is a hip-hop producer who has produced for many of hip-hop’s leading artists, and has been hailed as “one of the top producers in the game.” Whether or not you know his name, chances are, you know his work on some of the biggest projects by name-brand artists.
As a teenager, the Alchemist was half of the duo The Whooliganz and a member of rap collective The Soul Assassins, which included Cypress Hill and House of Pain. The Alchemist studied beat making with DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill and Evidence of Dilated Peoples.
After moving to New York, the Alchemist produced Mobb Deep, Pharoahe Monch, Royce da 5’9, Fat Joe, Defari, Freddy Foxxx, Ludacris, Big Daddy Kane, and Ghostface Killah, and even rock acts Linkin Park and Morcheeba. In 2004 the Alchemist released his first solo full-length, 1st Infantry, which, besides featuring his own beats, also had him rapping alongside Nas, Stat Quo, the Game, Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep, and Dilated Peoples. In 2005, the Alchemist toured with Eminem as his DJ on the Anger Management 3 tour. He is also currently serving as the music producer of the tenth installment of the Grand Theft Auto video game.
