The Alchemist has had one helluva year so far, and it’s only going to get better. After capping off 2014 with Fashawn’s FASH-ionably Late EP, the producer-on-the-mic went on to drop a GTA-inspired project (featuring the likes of Freddie Gibbs, Killer Mike, Ab-Soul, and A$AP Ferg), followed that with a surprise Israeli Salad instrumental project, and even announced a new Gangrene album with Oh No.
Today, helping kick off the “New Music Friday” launch, Alan the Chemist has cooked up a fresh batch of Retarded Alligator Beats for our listening pleasure. Driven by “Voodoo” with Action Bronson (the lone vocal track), the 16-track effort is a quick listen as it clocks in at just 20 minutes. So press play and ignore the world for the next hour – and if you like what you hear, which you will, head to iTunes to support.
