For me, the highlight from Curren$y and Alchemist's superb 'The Carrollton Heist' mixtape — a track that glides around neon-smeared streets and almost disappears into its own intrigue, no hooks, no direction, no verses, no choruses, just this hovering, held-in-a-grip moment spun out for 162 seconds of dread. Alchemist, with this, with last year's 'Israeli Salad', really is starting to stake a claim as hip-hop's most engaging dissident voice. Hoping more mainstream MCs will grow the cojones in the coming year to work with Alc. The results are almost always as sublime as this.
