One day I was casually scrolling through The Alchemist’s Wikipedia page, when I clicked on his production discography. I must have been looking for backup for a certain song when I stumbled across the year 2004. Mobb Deep’s Amerikaz Nightmare dropped that year, which I was bumping back then. Plus, Alchemist had credits on both Jadakiss’ sophomore album, Kiss of Death, and Snoop Dogg’s latest effort, R&G. Neither of these production credits surprised me.
I scrolled a bit further down and saw Nelly’s name.
I was dumbfounded.
