The Alchemist: “Flight Confirmation” (Feat. Danny Brown & ScHoolboy Q)
Both Danny Brown and ScHoolboy Q have had a tremendous year. Coming off the success of Danny Brown’s 2011 album, XXX, the Detroit phenom has tore up a number of features this year in a manner that’s more bloodthirsty than we’ve ever seen him. Combine that with ScHoolboy Q’s steady rise to prominence with Black Hippy and his excellent 2012 release, Habits & Contradictions, and you’ve got two emcees who simply rap like it’s their last day on Earth. Assembled by the great Alchemist, whose production here is a typical reflection of his sample chopping prowess, the two-minute long “Flight Confirmation” is a fleeting—albeit sterling—track that demands and receives the best of these three.
