I was a supporter of Dilated Peoples from the moment first hearing the `Soundbombing II' title track, back in '99. Alchemist was busy crafting his legend in the underground scene with hits for the Mobb and the Expansion Team. I thought to myself even then that Evidence always spoke as if from-on-high, like he was 10-feet tall or something; I thought to myself even then that The Alchemist's production would often rival Premier's, and he was already placing classic chops. Considering strongly all of their various works since those early days--all of the their best material to date, coupled with the fact that they showed not only staying-power but also intimidatingly inspirational improvement--with all of this in mind, I found keeping my expectations in proper perspective a very difficult thing to do. This was not going to be just some new collaboration between two highly respected artists, it would be a project sewn together with the thread of consummation.

Production aficionados and lyric aficionados should be equally sated guests of `Lord Steppington'! The big-picture is an understated yet still emphatic assertion of inherent regality, as the title implies. I mention that, because the titular theme was beyond mere pomposity--it carried through actually, in both sound and line. A rampant tendency to boast emptily or unconvincingly, almost begging for the listeners respect plagues many presentations. Gun-talk, material-talk, `the hardcore-ish' approach is cliché for the most part. As for beats: there is another rampant tendency to either make `boring bangers' of the entire selection--with no sense of atmosphere or melodic flow to randomly placed tracks; or, the `playalicious' route is taken--sans the necessary balance with a head nodding, Hulk-smash element.

As a long time fan of both of these artists, I've been anticipating this album for over 10 years. When I hear this album, I think of pure hip-hop. Dope beats, and dudes rhyming their asses off. Alchemist handles all of the production here with the exception of 'Byron G', which was produced by Evidence. The beats are banging! ALC never dissapoints with the production. He has been on fire for the last 2-3 years, producing some of the absolute best hip-hop albums for MC's like Boldy James, Currensy, Durag Dynasty, Willie the Kid, Action Bronson, and many more. The beats here range from epic sounding (More Wins), to more gritty (Legendary Mesh), to just laid back and chill (No Hesitation). Not one bad beat on this album, IMO.

ALC also raps on every song here, except 'Byron G', something he rarely does. Lyrically, ALC is not as sharp as Evidence, but he holds his own. Evidence sounds sharper than ever on this album. Every verse he drop is straight fire! Still one of the best in the game. The guest MCs also do a great job. We have great verses from Action Bronson, Style P, Domo Genesis, Oh No, Rakka, Blu, and even Scott Caan makes an appearance on 'Byron G' for a nice reunion of The Whooliganz (Scott and ALC).

This album is great, and it's a great way to start off 2014. Every song here is good, but my standout tracks are 'Legendary Mesh', 'Tomorrow', 'No Hesitation', and 'Dr. Kimble'. This is real hip-hop. Support it.

Maaaan, this is one of the best albums I've heard of recent note, The Alchemist destroyed on production and Evidence sounded lovely on each track. I loved the care-free free-flowing nature of each track which kept it sounding fresh and original on repeat listens.

I have no idea what the hook says on Legendary Mesh, but its the hardest damb song on the LP.

When I first read about evidence and al dropping an album I was very skeptical.
Alchemist for the past 3 years has been dropping heat producing hip hop albums that let you know that the quality of the music hasn't degraded. The quality hip hop albums are just harder to find. I'm on a tablet writing this so I can't go into too much detail. These dudes made a very entertaining, head bobbing hip hop album. You can really tell they weren't trying to be taken too seriously and just wanted to have fun. And they really do project the fun and energy through the music. All the guest appearances came through correct and you can tell they didn't wanna have the worst verse on each song.
If there's gonna be a lord steppington part 2 I'll be purchasing it first day.
This is the type of music I'm willing to spend my hard earned money on.
They deserve it

Usually, when two names in hip hop decide to work on an entire album together, it's done for numerous reasons. It's either a way to promote themselves- even though nothing ever materializes (See: Dr. Dre & Ice Cube and Lil' Wayne & Juelz Santana). Another reason is they decide to do one after having great chemistry due to previous collaborations (See: Method Man & Redman). Or, they go forth with a decision to do one, but the results didn't pan out as expected (See: Jay-Z and R. Kelly). Enter Evidence and The Alchemist - two veterans on the West Coast underground hip hop scene. The two guys- the former a member of Dilated Peoples and the latter is a rapper turned producer- have a shared history. Their time in the music industry is well documented as being frequent collaborators- but it extends much farther than that. Evidence and The Alchemist grew up together, having known each other since they were little children. The Alchemist started out as a young rapper with his partner in crime, rapper turned actor Scott Caan. They signed with Tommy Boy and released a couple of singles, but nothing happened and they parted ways. Meanwhile, Evidence started with his group Dilated Peoples and signed with Capitol Records where they brought along The Alchemist to work on all of their studio recordings.

The Alchemist worked on several recordings- both underground (Mobb Deep, Defari) as well as mainstream (Jadakiss, Nas). Around that time, Dilated Peoples were soon to split up after their disappointment with Capitol. Evidence and The Alchemist released solo projects and even hinted at a possible album. However, much like all collaborations, legal issues and prior commitments got in the way of things. Fast forward a few years later, the duo release their debut "Lord Steppington".
