A much-sweated producer best known for his work with Mobb Deep and Dilated Peoples, the Alchemist comes strong on this compilation-style album, flexing his penchant for fierce beats and dramatic samples. Standout tracks include "Stocking Cap" with Saigon, "Shoot Em Up Pt. 2" with Big Noyd, and "Tick Tock" featuring Nas.
