Alchemist is one of the best producers in the game but that goes without saying, and he stopped by The Smokebox recently to chop it up with his long time friend BReal. You will find them talking about a ton of interesting subjects including hanging out with Cypress Hill at a very young age, his relationship with Action Bronson, his work on the Temples of Boom album, having bar work as a teenager, Mobb Deep, putting his 10,000 hours into his craft in order to master it, meeting Busta Rhymes when he picked him up from the airport and more. Check out the first part of this conversation below as we wait for the second part that hopefully drops soon!
