Kwamizzle – Full Mental Alchemy

It isn’t usually known as a holiday of gift giving, but on this past Earth Day, Kwamizzle bestowed upon us his latest production, “Full Mental Alchemy.”

Its been a little over a year since I’ve started recording for FMA. I wanted to up the ante from my last project. I wanted to really show that I could bring out that essence of hip hop. I felt like that particular feeling was the exact same vibe one gets while listening to any Alchemist production. Full Mental Alchemy. Alchemy, basically, is being able to create something great out of “nothing”. With FMA I aimed to create something great using my “full mental”, my mind. It seemed almost perfect to create Full Mental Alchemy, I’m very excited to see what listeners think about the project. I want to thank everyone in TRUSIC for encouraging me to push myself to be great, and also for being examples of the paths to follow. Enjoy the project and share it with a friend. -KWAMIZZLE
