Alchemist recently spoke out on his work with Slaughterhouse for their Shady Records debut. Chopping it up with Montreality, Al explained that he’s contributing to the project and that it’s already on track to blow listeners’ minds.
“It’s pretty crazy, man. They have some amazing records. The album’s stupid,” he said. “I’m making my little contributions where I can. The ball goes out of bounds, I keep it in, throw a little dirt on the ball. Nothing too fancy, keeping it in the Alchemist tradition. Slaughterhouse album, four incredible emcees, Shady Records. Put it together, what do you think you’re going to get?”
He also spoke on why he thinks Eminem is a unique live performer, explaining that his on-stage deejay – aka himself – is the one who beefs up his gigs.
“What separates his show is the element he has, the live deejay on the stage with him that’s amazing,” he quipped. “I’ve never seen a deejay like this before, cut scratch with finesse, funky, dope, def. Not a lot of groups have funky, dope, def deejays like that. So being that he has that, I would say that separates him from most rappers. That deejay, man, made my day.”
