4Worst

DILATED PEOPLES
‘Worst Comes To Worst’ (original and remix)
(taken from Expansion Team album and single, Capital Records, 2001)

PRODUCER: Alchemist


Alchemist: I like the original, the remix was great too but I think the original has lasted.

Evidence: There were two elements to this song that made it next level on top of the beat and us rapping. One was the sample of Havoc saying “worst comes to worst my peoples come first”, and the other was Guru, who laced us with the bridge, the little shout out in between the verses. So for the remix it was like, “Let’s get Guru and Havoc, the two people who made that song possible.” Alchemist brought Havoc over to my apartment in Venice Beach and we recorded it up there. He did the vocals in my bedroom, it was crazy. Having Havoc coming over to my house at that time was nuts, I was nervous recording it. The first record did well for our fan base but the second record got us on radio and more TV exposure too. The experience was great.


Chosen YouTube comment: “NOW PEOPLE HEAR DJ AND THEY THINK TECHNO”

Alchemist: Yeahhhhh. Techno’s good. I guess. I don’t know. I mean… if you take the drugs that people who listen to techno take, it’s probably amazing. It probably compliments that drug in an amazing way. I’ll never know.
