The Alchemist on First Meeting Eminem
www.vladtv.com – Producer extraordinaire The Alchemist talked to VladTV about getting started in the music game, what his official affiliation with Eminem is, and why he doesn’t envision himself as a true DJ.
After parting ways with The Whooliganz in the early 90’s, the Cali native focused on his producing and lyrical efforts, which led him to work with Dilated Peoples, Mobb Deep and eventually Eminem. Alchemist cleared up speculation of his official role over at Shady records as the rapper’s DJ. He also says he isn’t signed to Shady Records like many others have assumed.
During his start, the producer says he was immensely in the Hip Hop culture. From break-dancing to rapping, he says he decided to stick with DJ’ing.
