Yesterday, Alchemist blessed us with the latest release from his Craft Singles series and this time he has teamed up with TDE’s Schoolboy Q for W.Y.G.D.T.N.S. (When you gonna drop that new shit?). This collaboration follows on from Alc’s production credit on Q’s recent CrasH Talk album, which has only increased my hunger for a full-length project from the pair.
The Alchemist has a new EP dropping in the next couple of days, featuring a few rap luminaries, including the recently rejuvenated, Earl Sweatshirt. Yesterday saw the release of their collaboration, accompanied by a slightly strange video from Jason Goldwatch, involving a sex scene between two Power Ranger types. The full EP, Bread, is available to pre-order now.
The Alchemist hit us with a new project on Friday, featuring a host of heavy-hitting MCs. Roc Marciano, Action Bronson, Styles P, Benny the Butcher, Westside Gunn and Conway all stepped into the booth, with the LA producer lining up four de rigueur drumless loop based beats for them to slay. The Lunch Meat EP can be streamed below and downloads/limited edition vinyl are available here.
The Alchemist closes down another successful year with a follow up to his French Blend project, which was only released a couple of weeks ago. The first glimpse emerged yesterday, an unmistakable Alc joint called Playboy Internacional. You can stream it below and head over to Bandcamp now to grab a pre-order for the full release. It’s set to drop on 31 December. Continue reading “The Alchemist: Playboy Internacional”
The new EP from Brooklyn’s finest, Mr MFN eXquire is out now and I’ve gotta say, it’s one of my favourite releases from him in a while. Brainiac features production from Tame One favourite, Parallel Thought, as well as The Alchemist, Canya Reial, CONSTROBUZ and Bowery Beats. There is also a guest spot from Meyhem Lauren, but it’s eXquire who makes the EP such a success. Hear it for yourself below, or alternatively it’s available to buy over on iTunes.

As you may be aware, The Alchemist has put together a series of limited edition 45s. He’s called them the Craft Singles and its no surprise that the selection looks to contain some instant classics. This particular joint features UN veteran and non-sequitur master, Roc Marciano. All For It is sold out already, but check the site for the others when they appear.
So Havoc and The Alchemist have gone and made an album together. The Silent Partner is out on Babygrande Records next month and in the run-up to the release, the two rap legends have dropped this beast of a track. Check out Maintain and stay tuned for more news on the album very soon.
