Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist have teamed up again for Alfredo, their first joint project in two years.
For the ten-track release, the duo enlisted an impressive line-up of guest rappers, including Rick Ross and Tyler, the Creator. Griselda Records’ Benny the Butcher and Conway the Machine also appear on “Frank Lucas” and “Babies & Fools,” respectively.
The project dropped alongside a video for the opening track, “1985.” In the clip, Gibbs and The Alchemist meet up in the middle of the desert to dispose of a body after a drug deal goes wrong. “Keep them beamin’ up to Scotty in my crack lobby / I can smell the ’caine burnin’ / Gangland, if you put a hit on Freddie Kane it’ll be a gang murder / 1985, Michael Jordan, bitch, I travel with a cocaine circus,” Gibbs spits.
Gibbs and The Alchemist previously teamed up with Curren$y for Fetti in 2018. Earlier this month, the rapper released The Diamond Mine Sessions, which reimagined cuts from his 2019 joint album with Madlib, Bandana.
