The 15 Best Producer/Rapper Combos Right Now


The Alchemist & Prodigy

Best Known Song: “Hold You Down”
Why They Work Well Together: In the mid ’90s, Prodigy and Havoc formed Mobb Deep, one of hip-hop’s most revered duos. A decade later, Prodigy found another beatsmith who brought out the best in him as an MC – The Alchemist. Judging from background alone, one would not expect The Alchemist and Prodigy to form one of hip-hop’s best combinations. The Alchemist was born to Jewish parents in Beverly Hills, Cali., while Prodigy was raised in the notorious Queensbridge projects. Despite their background differences, The Alchemist’s soulful-yet-street sound has served as a perfect companion for Prodigy’s street-smart, gritty lyricism. Their second collaborative album, Albert Einstein, dropped on June 11.
