Rap is an art you can’t own no loops, it’s how you hook ‘em up in your rhyme style, troop -GURU
That line from the late, great Gangstarr vet was important durin ga sample heavy time in Hip-Hop where crate digging occasionally ended up wiht two separate groups having the same sample on a record. in this instance, The Alchemist ends up in the same grocery store as Kenoe & Got Koke, who used the same sample on Rick Ross’ recently released God Forgives, I Don’t album on the track “Pirates.” The Alchemist keeps a bit more drama and suspense with his construction, pairing M.O.P.’s Fizzy Womack with Termanology on the title track of their upcoming collaborative project Fizzyology. The project will feature Busta Rhymes, Styles P, Bun B, Freeway, M.O.P., DJ Premier, Statik Selektah & more.
The pairing is known for dropping hard, high-energy rhymes and this song is no exception. In fact, their high energy, paired with the dark energy of the track make for a very nice texture. The Alchemist production leans heavy on the deep note organ keys and a flat but hard drum. There are ambient strings that float an air of danger.
Termanology talks of Jeffrey Dahmer and Freddie Krueger, evoking visions of monsters both real and fantastic. Fame on the other hand hits hard with a strong sense of humor and narrative. In his own words he don’t spit about hot whips and fashion and it’s clear that when Lil Fame is rapping there is no floss at all.
Together the duo and Alchemist have a legit win under their belts with this single and if the rest of the album is like this, the streets are going to have a real problem. “Fizzyology.” Bang this.
