After a handful of singles, including “When The Sun Comes” featuring Masta Ace, “Digital Warfare” featuring Inspectah Deck, and “Anyway It Goes” featuring MC Eiht, ‘Basement Chemistry’s‘ formula stays true to the game, official boom-bap, with obscure samples and intricate cuts and Benef drops rejuvenated flows and shares mics with hip-hop’s elite lyricists on ‘Basement Chemistry‘, including Inspectah Deck, Masta Ace, MC Eiht, El Da Sensei, AG, Dres, and Chubb Rock among others.
Once again, the Artifacts affiliate traps the listener into slick, thought provoking rhymes backed by hard hitting yet soulful production from DJ Spinna, Da Beatminerz, Confidence, and L’Orange.
Benef returns with a visual for the album’s closer, “Make It Hot (Jingle Jangle 2.0)” featuring The Legion & Dres from Black Sheep (which is a reboot of The Legion’s debut single featuring Dres that dropped in 1993).
