(AllHipHop News) Alchemist has been a familiar face in Prodigy’s life for over 13 years, but there was a time when he was cop to him.
In a sit down with Noisey, Prodigy and Alchemist reminisce on their history by revealing lesser known facts about the two such as how Prodigy first thought Alchemist was a cop. “I thought he was a FED,” Prodigy says “I thought ‘they sent the FED in to investigate us.’” Luckily for the 22 year old Alchemist all he had to do was play some beats to convince Prodigy he didn’t have a badge.
In the interview, Alchemist reveals that the late Chris Lighty arranged the first time he DJ’ed for Mobb Deep on the 1999 Family Values Tour. According to Alc, the Queensbridge duo came out on stage in matching orange jumpsuits.
