Gangrene (The Alchemist and Oh No) "Chain Swinging"
We've been keeping tabs on MC/producers The Alchemist and Oh No for quite some time now (even some of their unconventional endeavors), so getting word that the two hip-hop mainstays were gearing up to work on an album together was—literally—music to our ears. Furthermore, it's no surprise that the first taste from the duo, calling itself Gangrene, and its forthcoming debut album, Gutter Water, is an excellently produced piece of gritty, head-knocking beat work and smoothly executed dual-vocal attacks. If the old-school essence of "Chain Swinging" isn't enough to pique your interest in the new project, maybe the album's guest appearances from Raekwon, MED, Guilty Simpson, and Planet Asia will do the trick.
