The Alchemist sat down with VladTV and shared what he feels is his most classic production, who he’d like to work with in the future, and what mixtape he’s been listening to lately.

While the revered beatsmith has classic productions for Nas, Jadakiss, Eminem and a list of others under his belt, Alchemist named Prodigy’s “Keep it Thoro” as his most classic rap beat that still gets Hip-Hop heads hyped. When it comes to future collaborators, he feels it’s less about the name and more about the chemistry. He also reveals that he’s been listening to the new Drake mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s too Late, a lot lately, with his favorite song being “6pm in New York.”
