After a highly publicized split from Shady Records and as Eminem's official DJ, Green Lantern has been officially replaced with Mobb Deep's longtime DJ and producer Alchemist.
After being offered a very highly sought after position by most DJs in the industry, Alchemist has accepted a position with Eminem to be his official in-house DJ.
"Basically, we are under the same management," Alchemist told Allhiphop.com. "My brother Neal [Maman] and Paul [Paul Rosenburg, Shady Records/Goliath Artists executive] stepped up and they came up with the idea. They approached him and then they approached me and asked me if I was with it. And I said, 'Yeah.'"
Although, people have been speculating who Eminem would choose as his 1's and 2's technician, Alchemist says that it wasn't a question, and feels that he' has proved over the past several years that he can "rock a show."
"For the last four years now, I've been doing the Mobb Deep tours," the producer explained to Allhiphop.com. "I've been holding it down. And before that I came up with Muggs and Cypress [Hill]. I have a good background in rocking the show."
Being that Al accepted the position, the DJ/producer/rapper stressed to Allhiphop, that he still plans to do his own thing and continue to make beats for the various artists he has relationships with. Al revealed that the Queensbridge duo will continue to leak music to fans, while they are in between deals.
Fans can expect Alchemist on the Anger Management tour with Eminem and company starting in July.
