Prodigy and Alchemist have proven their unique chemistry over several years of Mobb Deep releases and P’s solo discography. Odd Future’s Domo Genesis also formed a formidable duo with Alc for last year’s criminally underrated No Idols mixtape. Now the three artists form an unholy trinity of drugs, art, and violence in the beautifully shot video for “YNT (Young And Thuggin).”
Domo gives a Notable Quotable-worthy performance over Alchemist’s moody production, while Prodigy sounds like his old perpetually pissed off self. He delivers his verse with the brusque New York impatience of a man late for work stuck behind a tourist trying to use a farecard for the first time. Prodigy and Alchemist’s new album Albert Einstein drops on June 11.
