THE ALCHEMIST SPEAKS ON WHAT MADE HIM FALL IN LOVE WITH HIP HOP

 

Alchemist

Hip Hop Producer  Alchemist spoke with VladTV about  the track that made him fall in love with Hip Hop.

Ignoring the coastal feuds that dominated hip-hop for most of the ’90s, the Alchemist (born Alan Maman) began his career in L.A. (he grew up in affluent Beverly Hills) and ended up in New York City. As a teenager, as part of the duo the Whooliganz (with Scott Caan, son of James) and the greater rap collective the Soul Assassins (with Cypress Hill, House of Pain, etc.), he released the single “Put Your Handz Up” on Tommy Boy in 1993, though the Whooliganz’ debut full-length, Make Way for the W, was eventually shelved. The Alchemist continued making beats, however, working with and learning from DJ Muggs on 1995’s Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom as well as with childhood friend Evidence of Dilated Peoples.

After moving to New York to attend college, Al hooked up with Queensbridge duo Mobb Deep, producing the songs “The Realest” and “Thug Music” from their 1999 record Murda Muzik, a collaboration that led to work with Pharoahe Monch, Royce da 5’9″, Fat Joe, Defari, Freddy Foxxx, Ludacris, Big Daddy Kane, and Ghostface Killah, and even rock acts like 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 Stat Quo, the Game, Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep, and Dilated Peoples, among others, and in 2005, after Eminem’s DJ Green Lantern left the Anger Management 3 tour, the Detroit rapper hired Al as his replacement.

In 2006, the Alchemist showcased his work with a pair of mixtapes of previously released and unreleased material, The Chemistry Files and No Days Off. After releasing the instrumental collection Rapper’s Best Friend in 2007, 2009’s Chemical Warfare featured Eminem, Juvenile, Dilated Peoples, and the Lady of Rage. The year 2012 found him releasing Vol. 2 of Rapper’s Best Friend along with Vodka & Ayahuasca, a collaborative album with producer/rapper Oh No recorded under the name Gangrene, and Russian Roulette, an album built by sampling Russian music. A year later he worked with Prodigy on the album Albert Einstein, while 2015 saw him collaborate with Oh No on Welcome to Los Santos, a collection inspired by the virtual radio stations found in the video game Grand Theft Auto V.  ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

 

 

RIP Frankie Knuckles: Fans, artists remember house music pioneer .. The Godfather of House Music was 59 years old.

Frankie-Knuckles

 

They called him “Godfather of House.” DJ Frankie Knuckles, born Francis Nicholls, died suddenly Monday when he was just 59, leaving fans and fellow DJs to mourn him and memorialize his founding role in house music. Knuckles is associated with the Warehouse, a Chicago club where he played. The scene directly gave birth to the very term “house music.”

Knuckles was born in The Bronx in 1955 and began DJing in New York in the ’70s with Larry Levan. After moving to Chicago in 1977 he played at the famed Warehouse and then his own club, The Power Plant. He remained an integral part of house music throughout the decades, producing seminal records ‘Your Love’, ‘Baby Wants To Ride’ and ‘Tears’ and continuing his DJing career to the present day. In 2004, Chicago named a street after him where the old Warehouse once stood.

 

Papoose Counts Down Remy Ma’s Final Days: “They Going To See Me W/ A Kool Aid Smile That Day”

Brooklyn rapper Papoose recently discussed the upcoming release of his wife/rapper Remy Ma and just how excited he is to finally reunite with her outside of jail.

Papoose is awaiting the July 31 release of Ma, who is serving time at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women for the shooting of Makeda Barnes-Joseph, who was accused of stealing $3,000 from the musician. “That’s going to be a very special day for me,” said the rapper of his wife’s release. “They say I never smile, but they going to see me with a Kool Aid smile that day.”
