The Alchemist Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records (Part 1)

Prodigy "Veteran's Memorial" (2000)

Album: H.N.I.C
Label: Relativity

The Alchemist: “I remember when we found ‘Veterans Memorial’ beat and he was like, ‘Yo this is perfect man I had this song written and this is [the perfect beat].’ He felt that beat captured what he was trying to say. That song was really emotional. I got this autographed championship jersey from Ron Artest and it says, ‘To Alchemist, the producer of Veterans Memorial, the best song ever.’ I guess it hit home to him because a lot of the people P talked about in the song, Ron grew up with them.”
