In a recent interview with Adra-Matic.Com, Alchemist spoke briefly about why he doesn’t usually produce for Eminem, despite being his DJ. He also reveals the artists he’d like to do full albums with, which includes MF Doom, Rakim, and JAY Z, among others. Read on:
Adramatic.com: I’d like to know more about my two favorites songs from Step Brothers (Alchemist & Evidence). The first one is Let Yourself Go. So what was your inspiration behind that beat?
The Alchemist: I made it in Eminem’s crib on the headphones on the MPC 2000 XL. Eastern european record, chopped it up. I made it with the headphones so it was different.
Adramatic.com: The second one is “So Fresh”:
The Alchemist: I just had a good feeling to it, it reminded me of It Was A Good Day by Ice Cube, something like that, just had a good feel.
Adramatic.com: I’m kind of surprised that you still don’t have a production on an Eminem’s album. Does he listen to your beats?
The Alchemist: Yeah, absolutely. I think it’s just my fault, I just didn’t make the right thing that fits for him you know what I mean? I just have to focus. When the time is right, it will probably happens, it’s probably my fault.
Adramatic.com: I feel that the majority of your beats are better than what he’s taking for his albums.
The Alchemist: Ohhhh that’s just subjective, I appreciate it though.
Adramatic.com: Do you make him listen to some underground?
The Alchemist: For sure, when I get a chance, I let him hear stuff, I played him Jay Electronica for the first time. Whenever I got his ears I try to play some shit that’s interesting, that I think he’ll like. It just needs to have syllables, otherwise he won’t be into it.
Adramatic.com: Did you make him listen to Below The Heavens?
The Alchemist: Not yet.
Adramatic.com: Raaah you got to!
The Alchemist: I will try that, good idea. He’ll like it, he’ll probably like it.
Adramatic.com: What’s your favorite song from his last album?
The Alchemist: “Evil Twin”.
Adramatic.com: With who would you like to do a full album?
The Alchemist: Kool G Rap, Rakim, Earl Sweatshirt, MF Doom, Jay-Z
