Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist enlist Tyler, The Creator, Rick Ross and more for new project
FREDDIE GIBBS & THE ALCHEMIST RELEASE JOINT PROJECT “ALFREDO”
FEATURES TYLER, THE CREATOR, RICK ROSS, BENNY THE BUTCHER AND CONWAY THE MACHINE
Just hours after they announced the project, Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist released Alfredo. The release features Tyler, The Creator, Rick Ross, Benny, The Butcher and Conway The Machine and includes the previously released single “1985.” The project is their second collaboration together following their 2018 tape with Curren$y, Fetti, which Pitchfork called “an example of the good that can happen when seasoned vets link up.”
The duo also launched an Alfredo store yesterday featuring exclusive merch, a comic book, CD, and vinyl. Shop the store at alfredo.restaurant.
Alfredo follows Freddie Gibbs’s joint album with Madlib, Bandana, from last year, which was named one of the best albums of the year by Complex, Consequence of Sound, Hypebeast, NPR, SPIN, Stereogum, Vice, Vulture, and many more, their accompanying Bandana Instrumentals album, and their NPR Tiny Desk.
The project also arrives after an industrious 2019 for The Alchemist. He released his compilation album Yacht Rock 2, the fifth installment of his Rapper’s Best Friend instrumental series, collaborations with Action Bronson (Lamb Over Rice) and Boldy James (The Price of Tea in China) and a joint EP with Conway The Machine (LULU) who features on Alfredo‘s eighth track “Babies & Fools.”
Listen to Alfredo above and stay tuned for more from Freddie Gibbs coming soon.
