After various releases on ESGN Records… Him and ALC released “Fetti” EP in 2018 featuring Curren$y that probably paved the way for this project now although both working together already goes back to 03/04.
The Alchemist probably don’t need any further introduction. Being taught by the legendary DJ Muggs the California producer started his music career already in the 90s with incredible productions on Dilated Peoples debut album or Mobb Deep’s Murda Muzik.
Ever since expanding his music catalog with regulary producing songs for Mobb Deep or other artists like: Fat Joe, Nas, Ghostface Killah, Jadakiss, Snoop Dogg, Linkin Park… And much more.
With this release Gibbs is ensuring his status as one of the most iconic figures in nowadays Hip Hop.
His songwriting skills are undeniable to be witnessed again on cuts like “Skinny Suge” or dialogue songs as “Frank Lukas” featuring Benny the Butcher or “Babies & Fools” with Conway the Machine. Just to name a few…
Whole LP definately more than worth it with productions being right on point and a Freddy G who never fails to impress.
