Hoover Street (Original Version)
Ahead of the impending release of Schoolboy Q’s new single “Groovy Tony,” Alchemist has shared an unexpected deep cut from Q’s last record. Apparently Schoolboy Q original recording “Hoover Street” over Alchemist production. What do y’all think of this version compared to the original? A lot of Schoolboy Q’s pauses and breaks in his bars make a lot more sense on the original production. "Hoover Street" originally appeared on Oxymoron.
Alchemist Feat. Mac Miller & Migos
After a slight warning from Mac Miller earlier, producer Alchemist decides to come through and share a new track on his soundcloud page tonight that he cooked up with the Pittsburgh rapper & Migos called "Jabroni."
Mike Will Made-It's Ear Drummers is a breeding ground for the game's hottest young acts. If you initally slept on Rae Sremmurd, make sure you don't do the same with Eearz. His first release, "Work Ya Muscle," is on its way to becoming a hit, and his latest, "Domino Effect," is even bigger.
Here's a new single from Joey Bada$$, "Aim High," courtesy of Scion AV. Though we tend to be wary of branded promotions like this, we can usually trust Scion, and with the help of Jozif Badmon, they've definitely delivered. "Aim High" comes with production from Harry Fraud and Alchemist. Hope y'all got your lighters handy.
The Alchemist is having a very busy 2015. After releasing instrumental album Israeli Salad in May, the prolific producer is already set to drop new instrumental project Retarded Alligator Beats tomorrow -- and that doesn't even count You Disgust Me, his collaborative project with Oh No set to drop on August 10. (Clearly Alan The Chemist is as creative with his album titles as he is with his beats.)
Alchemist Feat. Action Bronson
After giving us an instrumental album, Israeli Salad, back in May, Alchemist is already back at it with the announcement of his new album Retarded Alligator Beats. To kick things off, the L.A.-based producer gets assistance from Action Bronson.
Earl Sweatshirt & Action Bronson
Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt both dropped new albums on Monday, although Bronson's release date was pushed up a day and Earl's was entirely mishandled by his label. Action Bronson has been bringing along Mr.
Play It Cool
Alchemist & Oh No Feat. Earl Sweatshirt & Samuel T. Herring
Next month Gangrene (AKA The Alchemist and Oh No) will be releasing Welcome To Los Santos, an album inspired by Grand Theft Auto V, and for their first track, they've given us quite the unexpected pairing. Delivering the hook is Samuel T. Herring, enigmatic frontman of the indie synth-pop group Future Islands (who's also quite the dancer), and none other than Earl Sweatshirt hops on for a late-game verse.
We haven't heard from Ab-Soul in months, but today, he leaked "47 Bars" to show fans he's still in the game. This is far from a mere throwaway, though. There are some genius rhymes sprinkled throughout, and Ab has something to say. The beat is a cosmic mind-melter from the always-reliable Alchemist.
Big League Chew
Earlier today, in the most recent episode of Action Bronson's "Fuck, That's Delicious" series, the Queens rapper linked up with his pal The Alchemist in L.A., offering a preview of a previously-unheard track in the process. Just minutes ago, Alc took to Twitter to share the full track. Entitled "Big League Chew," the song is a "Munchies exclusive," according to the famed producer.
Fashawn Feat. Evidence
Recent Mass Appeal signee Fashawn is gearing up for a joint project with one of the illest producers in the game, The Alchemist. Entitled FASH-ionably Late, the project will be an EP that'll see the light of day in 2015. Today, we get "Dreams," which also features rapping from Uncle Al's "Stepbrother," Evidence.
Action Bronson Feat. Danny Brown
Grand Theft Auto games generally feature a lot of new exclusive hip hop, at least more recently, and it seems that Grand Theft Auto V will be no exception. While we heard new work from Tyler, The Creator and ASAP Rocky last time around, today we're given a brand new collaboration between "1 Train" collaborators Action Bronson and Danny Brown.
Earl Sweatshirt has been relatively quiet this past year as he's been busy putting the finishing touches on his new album.
Termanology Feat. Reks & Willie The Kid
Massachusetts veteran Termanology will be dropping a new album on December 9th. Entitled Shut Up And Rap (an apt title considering his focus on straight up bars over stylistic flourishes), the album's just seen its first track dropped. "El Wave" also features REKS and Willie The Kid, and was produced by The Alchemist and Statik Selektah.
Today is storied hip-hop producer The Alchemist's birthday, and he's turned the tradition of gift-giving on its head, giving US a present on his earthly anniversary. The gift comes in the form of a previously-unreleased track that Uncle Al made with Mobb Deep entitled "Biology."
Rookies Of The Future (CDQ)
Riff Raff Feat. Action Bronson
Yesterday we got a new collaboration from Riff Raff and Action Bronson, with guitar-strumming production from The Alchemist. This isn't the first time these two oddballs (I say that in the best way possible) have collabed, they proved they had great chemistry with "Bird On A Wire" from two years ago. The chemistry is alive and well on the latest collaboration "Rookies Of The Future", so with that being said, would you be interested in seeing these two do an entire collaborative project?
Rookies Of The Future
Riff Raff Feat. Action Bronson
RiFF RAFF got a pretty look at this year's VMAs when he arrived as Katy Perry's date, paying tribute to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's infamous matching denim getups. The one and only JODY HiGHROLLER has now returned with some new music, linking up with Action Bronson over a beat from the ever consistent Alchemist.
Alchemist is nothing if not consistent. He's linked up for full length projects with the likes of Boldy James, Evidence, and Prodigy over the last couple years, each as solid as the last. Today he links up with gritty New York spitter Bodega Bamz for a dark collaboration, providing him with a fittingly menacing beat.
Mobb Deep return today, a few months removed from the release of their album The Infamous Mobb Deep. After giving us a remix of one of the album cuts "Dirt" with Ghostface Killah, they've unleashed some new content with that gritty New York sound.
You're Blind (Freestyle)
We introduced you to rising Chicago rapper Giftz more than a year ago with his "Nino (Remix)" for which he enlisted a bunch of fellow Chicago rappers on the grind. We then followed that up with featuring Giftz in our 10 Chicago Players From The Underground list.
