Eminem has a new DJ and Green Lanterns replacement is a familiar face to Hip-Hop.
The Alchemist, normally affiliated with Mobb Deep, has accepted a position with Eminem as his new in-house spin doctor.
Alchemist told AllhipHop.com, �Basically, we are under the same management. My brother Neal and Paul 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.��
DJ Green Lantern, Eminem�s former DJ, voluntarily left Shady Records after a conversation with 50 Cent adversary Jadakiss was unknowingly taped in a conversation about the pair�s beef.
Alchemist didn�t even have to audition for the lyrical Detroit piston and Alchemist stated that he�s been on the 1�s and 2�s with Mobb Deep. �For the last four years now, I�ve been doing the Mobb Deep tours,� he explained. �I�ve been holding it down. And before that I came up with Muggs and Cypress . I have a good background in rocking the show.�
The DJ, who released 1st Infantry (Koch) last year, certainly sees advantage in being party to heavy-hitters like Eminem, G-Unit and others, but he said he was keeping it all in perspective. �Right now, I am just dealing with the situation of being Eminem�s DJ and, of course I am always going to be doing beats. I�m not just going to be a DJ,� he said. �I would love to , that would be great. I definitely look forward to that. His shit is incredible. I�m sure we have a mutual respect as far as music . If the opportunity ever arises, I�m sure we would make some incredible music. But, right now the issue at hand is to handle the tour and be Em�s DJ.�
�This is like a blessing and I am taking it as it comes,� he concluded. �As creative people, we are always moved by other creative people.�
The Anger Management Tour III starts in July 2005.
Winding up, he said that he�s still working with Mobb Deep on new music. �I don�t want to plug anything yet but, we�ve been leaking songs out a little but. Being that they are between deals right now, we�re keeping the music coming. We�re leaking joints for the fans to let them know, we got this.�
