4/26/2017 The Alchemist & Kendrick Lamar

Daniel Alan Maman AKA "The Alchemist" has become a hugely successful producer in hip-hop over the years. His production discography boasts collaborations with Prodigy, Odd Future, Mac Miller, Migos, Rick Ross, Schoolboy Q, and many more. However his most current achievement as of yet is perhaps his work with Kendrick Lamar. The Alchemist produced the track' Fear' off Lamars' new album DAMN, which is currently #1 on the Billboard 200 chart after earning 603,000 equivalent album units in it's first week. All tracks on the album entered the Billboard 100 chart with 'Fear' debuting at #50.

Numbers aside, 'Fear' finds itself in a unique place on DAMN. Told from the perspective of Lamar at ages 7, 17, and 27, it's an interesting tale of introspection about growing up. The Alchemist provides a mellow beat with intricate and bluesy guitar parts. Clocking in at seven minutes and fourty seconds 'Fear' is definitely a standout track on DAMN.

Additionally, The Alchemist produced a Kendrick Lamar track called 'The Heart Part 4' which was released 2 weeks prior to DAMN. 'The Heart Part 4' features Lamar boasting about his success and wealth all while discussing current politics. There are multiple beat switches by The Alchemist which keeps the listener on their toes. We're looking forward to more Alchemist projects in the future.
