After a series of pushbacks spanning almost two years, The Alchemist finally released his second studio album, Chemical Warfare, yesterday, July 7.  Though the LP features a who’s-who of hip-hop (everybody from Em, Snoop, Jada and Loso to KRS, Kool G Rap, Lady of Rage, and Maxwell makes an appearance), two of the biggest names in the bunch can be found on this unreleased track. Though Alc was none too pleased when I Know Your Name surfaced on the net in an unfinished form, he simply took the unauthorized leak as motivation to polish the track and release it himself—thus, what we have here is the official, finished version. Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy‘s characteristically inspiring rhymes won’t fail to impress his group’s sizable fanbase, but the biggest draw here is Lil Wayne‘s Auto-Tuned, barely-understandable hook, which sounds surprisingly solid over Alc’s smooth piano loops.  Should I Know Your Name have made Chemical Warfare‘s tracklist?  I’ll let the readers have the final say.  Regardless, be sure to check-in this Thursday, when our own Nathan S. will give his take on the album.
