The Alchemist Announces New Album ‘Haram’ With Armand Hammer

The Alchemist and Armand Hammer collab album includes features from Earl Sweatshirt, Quelle Chris and more.

The Alchemist has announced that he and rap duo Armand Hammer are working together on a new album titled Haram. The producer shared the news on social media Wednesday morning.

Haram will include features from Earl Sweatshirt, Quelle Chris, KAYANA, Fielded, Curly Castro and Amani. The project is expected to drop on March 26. The album can be pre-ordered here.

Last year saw Alchemist release a handful of collaborative albums including The Price of Tea in China with Boldy James, LULU with Conway the Machine, and Alfredo with Freddie Gibbs. The producer also released an instrumental album, The Food Villain, last year.

Armand Hammer dropped Shrines last year. The project featured guest appearances from artists who are also appearing on Haram like Earl Sweatshirt, Quelle Chris, Fielded and more, as well as artists like Pink Siifu, Keiyaa, and Akai Solo. The pair talked about working together on Shrines during an interview with Passion of the Weiss last year.

“We actually say what we mean when we say it. Sometimes when people collaborate, it gets diluted in the attempt to be like, ‘It’s for the group,'” member Elucid said. “It all has to be this simple way of presenting a unified vision, but I think that me and Woods do it a little differently. We can rap about the same concept in two different ways, or more if we extend the verses. I’m not sure how that came about or why it works, but it is what it is. I love it. I love making music with Woods; it’s a challenge.”
