Hopefully The Alchemist and Larry June are dropping their album soon, because their latest single “60 Days” is so promising. Moreover, the track features both California rap artists in their best elements. On one hand, June comes through with steady and effortless verses, whereas Al- wait, did he just start rapping? Not only does The Alchemist produce here, but he gifts fans a nice 8-bar verse with some engaging rhymes and wordplay. Of course, Al got his start as an MC and that, paired with his decades of experiences, might be lost on newer listeners. Overall, if you had a doubt about either of these artists, “60 Days” indicates that a project could just bring out the best in each other.
First, the instrumental here is classic Alchemist production. For example, the bright and otherworldly string samples and very light beat contrast with deep bass. As perfectly evidenced on albums of his like Sandwich, he’s a master at making a grimy beat feel wondrous, and a dreamy instrumental feel grounded. It also pairs well with June’s more understated delivery here, even as he details his lavish lifestyle. Most importantly, maybe these contrasts are indicative of the tracks themes. A lot can happen in 60 days, and there’s always the conflict between where you are and what it took to get you there.
