In a day and age where finding new music is easier than ever, The Alchemist and Earl Sweatshirt are going against the grain. The iconic producer recently revealed he and Earl have an entire undiscovered album sitting on YouTube under a fake name.
Not only is their duo name made up but the YouTube account, the cover art and the song titles are all imagined. "Nobody found it yet," The Alchemist announced. Someone's gotta step up ASAP!
Alc’s replies swiftly filled with responses from trolls plugging their own music, as well as fans who had already given up hope on ever finding the project.
"That's like throwing a penny in the ocean & telling us to go get it," one person commented. "Ima sit this one out, boss."
While Alc and Earl have linked for two songs this year, "Nobles" and "Loose Change," both appearing on Alc's 'This Thing Of Ours' EP, the hidden album has allegedly existed since as early as Jan. 2019.
On the flip side, The Alchemist is also bringing some of his best mixtapes to major streaming services like Spotify for the first time. 'Covert Coup' with Curren$y, widely considered one of the best mixtapes from the "Blog Era" in the early 2010s, is the latest to be reissued.
To celebrate the release, they worked with Nautica and Diamond Supply Co. on a special capsule fit for both the open seas and a studio session. Pieces include co-branded hoodies and a pullover jacket lined with colorful sailboats.
Oh, and the two have some unheard tunes on the way, too!
