DON’T SLEEP [FLASHBACK]: Hipnodx Alchemist Interview From 2000 [VIDEO]

This is an interview that The Alchemist first did from an NYU dorm room back in 2000 for the Burly Bear Network’s Hip Hop show called Hipnodx. I was a regular viewer back then and it was hosted by a young college student/producer named Phlegm. His beats would often play during episodes as he introduced videos. Either that or he interviewed rappers or producers. It’s crazy that I actually found this interview in pieces from different users but mainly from one on YouTube who had the entire jawn up in 2 halves. Enjoy and RIP the Burly Bear Network that Viacom crushed back in the days…
