Among the most revered rap producers to surface during the '90s, The Alchemist (born Alan Maman) began his career in L.A. and ended up in New York City. As a teenager, as part of the duo the Whooliganz (with Scott Caan, son of James) and the greater rap collective the Soul Assassins (with Cypress Hill, House of Pain, etc.), he released the single “Put Your Handz Up” on Tommy Boy in 1993. The Alchemist further worked and learned from DJ Muggs on 1995's Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom as well as with childhood friend Evidence of Dilated Peoples. These connections led to a prolific career as a reliable source for tough yet detailed beats suffused with soul. After moving to New York to attend college, Al hooked up with Queensbridge duo Mobb Deep, and did work with Pharoahe Monch, Royce da 5'9", Fat Joe, Defari, Freddy Foxxx, Ludacris, Big Daddy Kane, and Ghostface Killah, and even rock acts like Linkin Park and Morcheeba. In 2004, the Alchemist released his first solo full-length, “1st Infantry”, which, besides featuring his own beats, also had him rapping alongside Stat Quo, the Game, Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep, and Dilated Peoples, among others. In 2005, after Eminem's DJ Green Lantern left the Anger Management 3 tour, the Detroit rapper hired Al as his replacement. Since then, he has recorded and produced various projects, collaborating with names like Oh No, Prodigy, Curren$y, Havoc, Jay Worthy, and Kendrick Lamar, among others.
