The Alchemist is one of the most influential producers in the history of rap, since 1997 he has crafted beats for veterans like Nas, Mobb Deep, Snoop Dogg & Eminem, and also keeping relevant working with some of today’s stars Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson & Danny Brown. Unfortunately I don’t know much about UK producer Budgie other than his work on the first instalment of this series, 2014’s “The Good Book Vol. 1”.
The project is a collection of instrumentals and collaborations featuring a massive list of guest stars such as Action Bronson, Your Old Droog, Conway, Westside Gunn and Buddy. Included also is the last collaboration between The Alchemist and Mobb Deep before the recent passing of Prodigy, who features alongside Havoc on “Try My Hand”.
