Limited double vinyl LP pressing of this 2016 release. After dropping back to back classics with Sidewalk Science (2011) and Concrete Soul (2012), Brick City veteran and Ill Adrenaline Records co-founder Beneficence unleashes his sixth solo LP Basement Chemistry. Armed with the true sounds of the golden era Benef drops rejuvenated flows and shares mics with hip-hop's elite lyricists. The lineup includes Inspectah Deck (of Wu-Tang Clan), Masta Ace, MC Eiht, El Da Sensei, AG (of D.I.T.C), Dres (of Black Sheep), The Legion, Chubb Rock, MindsOne, and Estee Nack (of Tragic Allies). Once again the close Artifacts affiliate traps the listener into slick, thought provoking rhymes backed by hard hitting yet soulful production from DJ Spinna, Da Beatminerz, 12 Finger Dan, Confidence, L'Orange, Presto, KON Sci, Jazz Spastiks, and many more. 19-tracks strong, the dusty and raw sounding full length displays a perfect blend of street jewels like the Inspectah Deck laced "Digital Warfare" and the Masta Ace inspiring anthem "When The Sun Comes". The P Original produced banger "Easy As 1-2" opens the album brilliantly showing Benef's relaxed but witty cadence. "Basement Chemistry" travels down many avenues including the battle rap driven joint "Against The Grain" and storytelling saga "Maui Vacation". The album's formula stays true to the game with obscure samples, intricate cuts, and official boom bap sound.
