Alchemist Appreciation

Let's take a break from all the Kanye, Preemo and Just Blaze Appreciation for a moment, and take a look at another dope Hip Hop producer, one that goes by the name of The Alchemist. Now seeing as I haven't blogged for several weeks, I'll hit you up with three big Alchemist tunes in an attempt to make up for lost time. Enjoy!

Dilated Peoples - Worse Comes To Worst

Pharoahe Monch - Desire

Prodigy - Keep It Thoro

Eminem - Recovery (Album Covers)

Royce Da 5'9" dropped the deluxe version of his Street Hop album today, and with it comes "My Own Planet", featuring Big Sean. I previously posted a version of this song without Big Sean's verse, so here's the full version in all it's glory. Enjoy!

Kanye Appreciation: Game - "Bang Along"

Here's a little gem from Game that I only just discovered yesterday. "Bang Along" is a track that didn't make the final cut for Game's 2nd studio album, Doctor's Advocate. This annoys me, coz in my opinion, "Bang Along" is far better than most of the tracks that actually did make it on the album. The song is great, with Game rhyming about his past and reminiscing on good old times, but it's Kanye's beat that really makes this song special. It's one of those beats that you just can't help but whistle along to. Enjoy!

Speaking of songs that didn't make the final cut for Doctor's Advocate, "My Bitch" is a Dr. Dre produced track, in which Game takes shots at some big industry names, such as 50 Cent, Jay-Z and Suge Knight. It's a great diss track, with a solid beat from Dre and amusing lyrics to match. Enjoy!

Kanye Appreciation: Game - "Dreams"

I recently bought Game's 2005 debut album, The Documentary, which features many great songs, including one of my favourite tracks of all time, "Hate It Or Love It". The Documentary also contains "Dreams", the only track to be produced by Kanye West, and easily one of the highlights of the album. As a bonus, I'll also throw in "How We Do", which is another popular track from The Documentary. Enjoy!

Game - Dreams

Game - How We Do (feat. 50 Cent)

Eminem - "Infinite" & "Biterphobia"

Here's some old school Eminem like you've never heard him before. You can't call yourself a true Eminem "stan" until you've heard these tracks. Enjoy!

Eminem - Infinite

Eminem - Biterphobia

Just Blaze Appreciation: Lil Wayne - "Million Dollar Baby"

"Million Dollar Baby" is another great banger produced by Just Blaze, and the beat really brings out the best in Lil Wayne. Weezy goes hard with his signature wordplay, hitting us with punch line after punch line, and with Blaze's production sounding like the theme music for an epic boxing match, the combination of lyrics and beat is just about perfect. Enjoy!

Premo Appreciation: Mos Def - "Mathematics"

Mos Def comes up with a great concept for a track and Premo brings the perfect beat to execute it. "Mathematics" is filled with plenty of Hip Hop quotables, while DJ Premier scratches out a great hook to match the songs title. This is probably my favourite Mos Def track so don't sleep on it. Enjoy!
