    This album is pretty good, yet there is some filler definitely. Old Leef down here talkin about "these days". The album features Kool G Rap and KRS One, hip hop pioneers, and they are the ones who have some of the worst rhymes on the album.

    The beats and the sampling make it worth picking up. It's just too bad the performances from the guest MCs are completely phoned in. You can always count on Eminem dumbing things down to middle school level.

    Excellent album with consistent production. The tracks are varied, and, unlike his previous release, Al shows more diversity in his chosen album guests. All and all, a good album, though not a classic.

  1. Chemical Warfare keeps this capo's reputation in tact. Recommended for aspiring dons and more open-minded thugs.
  2. Chemical Warfare is a rap version of Speilberg's Minority Report; it draws upon a gritty underground past while embracing more modern craftsmanship, where new smooth edges are balanced by the felt-authenticity of its caliginous vision.
  3. It may be that the only constant on Chemical Warfare IS Alchemist's beats, but that's enough to make it work--and like the futuristic battle it implies the album is filled with hits you'll never see coming.
