2019 was a quietly productive year for Alchemist. After 2018’s Fetti project with Freddie Gibbs and Curren$y, he produced four collaborative projects. He linked up with The Cool Kids’ for their Layups EP and Evidence for Burnt Tree.
In late November, Alchemist dropped the Lamb Over Rice EP with Action Bronson. On January 14, he released The Good Book, Pt. 1 & 2. The Good Book is mostly instrumental, with appearances from Mobb Deep, Westside Gunn and Conway, and Roc Marciano. Alchemist also hinted at releasing two more EPs with Budgie in the near future. Right before Christmas, Boldy James and Alchemist released the Boldface EP, a 15-minute appetizer.
On Friday, the duo released the main course. The Price of Tea in China features 12 tracks, with guest appearances from Evidence, Freddie Gibbs, Benny the Butcher and Vince Staples.
