    had to look up what ayahuasca is, some drug
    1.0 from me and a converted 2.4 from the pros at allmusic

    from the album - Vodka & Ayahuasca
    The Alchemist + Oh No (Gangrene) - Vodka & Ayahuasca (Official Music Video) - YouTube

    released Jan 24th, 2012

    Bio - from allmusic

    Featuring producer/rapper the Alchemist and rapper/producer Oh No, Gangrene was launched when these two strangers
    were introduced by a mutual friend, rapper and Dilated Peoples member Evidence. Beats and verses were exchanged
    through e-mail, and something casual and fun quickly turned serious, with the duo deciding to introduce Gangrene to
    the world. The underground hip-hop haven Decon was just the label to do it, and in 2010 they released the project's
    debut album, Gutter Water. Influenced by fuzz guitars and the whole psychedelic era, Vodka & Ayahuasca followed in

    Album Review - from allmusic

    With producer/rapper the Alchemist and rapper/producer Oh No behind the project, Gangrene is dirty, underground
    hip-hop excellence as expected, but Vodka & Ayahuasca takes it to another level, or realm. "This is an acid
    trip/Rancid spit" is how this album's title track explains the conceptual rip in space and time that's laid down
    throughout, as Hendrix headbands and hi-tops come together like rap was spawned with the help of George Clinton's
    Funkadelic rather than George Clinton's Parliament. "Auralac Bags" smells as much of old reefer as it does of
    modern indo, and even as tracks like "Dump Truck" thump with the modern boom-bap, a sitar or whammy-bar is bound to
    sneak in, making sure the total album experience lives up to its mind-bending cover art. This is dense stuff, too,
    creating a patchouli cloud of sound that somehow still allows for prime beats and hooks to come through. Think Nick
    Cannon starring in Good Times or Vivica A. Fox and Pam Grier as contemporaries and you've got the magic of Vodka &
    Ayahuasca, a "not for everyone" album that lives in an impossible universe you never thought existed, and now have
    a chance to visit.

    I dig it, personally. The underground is the best.
