Even though he’s been spinning for him for a number of years, it’s surprising to some that producer The Alchemist and Eminem have only ever linked up on one track – 2009’s “Chemical Warfare.” Now, in an exclusive interview with Complex, the California-based producer/emcee recalls the recording process of said track.
A-L-C said he was ecstatic to finally be able to work with Em on his album, especially given that Em was in the beginning stages of his recovery from drugs and alcohol. Still, the Gangrene member said that Em still apologizes to him to this day for the off-kitler accent he used on the song.
“It’s funny we laugh about it now cause that’s the era where he [Eminem] was just sobering up and he was still coming out of those accents. I was so happy and it was so dope at the time but he was kinda like over the accent thing. A couple times Eminem has been like, ‘Yo my bad I had to give you one of the accent joints for your album.’ A couple times he’s been like, ‘Yo my bad I had to give you one of the accent joints for your album.’ Like are you kidding, if I can get an adlib from Eminem I’m lucky. He’s the greatest, possibly, of all time. Regardless of me DJing for him, Em is the man.”
