Following last year’s incredible “The Price Of Tea In China,” Alchemist and Boldy James are set to reunite for a new album.
The announcement came alongside a revealing behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the Boldface, a 2019 project that preceded the release of Price Of Tea. For those who appreciate a more thorough glimpse into the studio process, the footage should prove most welcome, as it grants a glimpse into Alchemist‘s routine behind the boards. Two words: records and weed. Near the end, the video showcases Alchemist in action, adding drums and bass to a hazy sample while Boldy observes from the couch.
“2019. In the studio making the Boldface EP with @boldyjames,” captions Alc, sharing a snippet of the documentary on his Instagram page. “Full video on youtube. New Boldy ALC album coming soon.” Great news to be sure, especially given their previous collaborative track record — though it’s unclear what “soon” means to Alchemist. As rap fans have learned, it can mean anything from a matter of weeks to, in the worst-case scenario, years.
