Classic Throwback Hip-Hop Footage Vol. 50: BET Rap City- The Alchemist (2004)

Still open people, the classics just keep rollin & rollin....

It took a couple years for Alchemist to come up as a producer. He first started strictly underground producing for the likes of Dilated Peoples. But he slowly started growing his repp doing tracks for Mobb Deep. Then the explosion happened when he did We Gon Make It for Jadakiss! After that the train was fulling rollin. On this ep here he doin promo for his standout debut album 1st Infantry!! The beats he did on this album was bananas!! Very rare piece here and im glad i caught it!!

U already know what it is, the theater is back open ready for viewings.....lets go!!

MTV for a couple years in the late 90s-early 2000s dedicated 1 week out of the year to hip-hop. They broke down all the major parts of hip-hop for each day during the week. Im glad i recorded this particular one cause it features the late great Jammaster Jay & the legendary Grandmaster Flash plus its hosted by Ed Lover!! Very great rare piece right here!
