1. AUDIO: Durag Dynasty – “Glass Of Astonishment” (Free Download).

    Apparently, there’s something about The Alchemist that we didn’t know before: The man never sleeps. How else can you explain the prolific producer’s recent run of non-stop material, from the mindblowing Gangrene project (the crazy-ass collaboration with Oh No) to his new upcoming solo album Russian Roulette (which drops July 17th) to this here Durag Dynasty cut, “Glass of Astonishment,” which he released free to his fans on Twitter earlier today.

    In case you don’t know, Durag Dynasty is a West Coast assault Gold Chain Military-style with members Planet Asia , TriState (who together form General Monks) and Killer Ben . The veteran trio show no mercy as they assault and batter Alchemist’s mesmerizing track that’s part vintage soul flourishes, part alternate dimension chamber music. Killer ben crushes everything in sight with his “diabolic alcoholic” flow, while Planet Asia taunts lames with lines like, “You’re just a parody, Weird Al Yankovic/ Makin’ it too easy for me to yank your bitch.” Tristate’s abstract rhymes also win with moments like these: “Piranha style aquarium / Motor Works Bavarian/ Fishtail, fish scale, you see I’m Piscaterian.” Expect the album soon. Meanwhile, listen to the leaked “Glass of Astonishment” now…
