Today, we find The Alchemist where we last left him: preparing his sophomore album, Chemical Warfare. In the year’s time since his first buzz single, Key to the City, hit the DJBooth, the SoCal producer with the NYC sound has been hard at work, finally securing a release date (October 28) for the project. Benefiting from his two-coast background, he brings over three heavyweights for the first ‘official’ single. East Coast vets Jadakiss and Pusha T spit a few of their rawest verses to date (where else would you hear about a Colombian necktie?), while Snoop Dogg adds a public service announcement for the hook: the street life is not for everyone, so, if you choose it, you should be prepared to Lose Your Life at any time. Those who can handle it will find this record perfect for rainy-day headphone theatre.
