Currensy & The Alchemist Bring that ‘Covert Coup’ Feeling to ‘Continuance’

In 13 tracks, Currensy and The Alchemist return with new collaborative tape, Continuance their third full-length album in six years.

Last releasing their 2016 collaborative album The Carrollton Heist, Currensy and The Alchemist have returned with Continuance. In 13 tracks, the album features appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Styles P, Babyface Ray, Larry June, Boldy James and Havoc. The Alchemist–who Okayplayer named one of the best producers of 2021–handled production on the entirety of Continuance.

Last month, Currensy went to Twitter and teased the album.

“After I sat down and listened to all records me and Alchemist lined up I was like nah man. We gotta rename this shit right?,” he tweeted. “This is covert coup level music and thus we have ‘Continuance’ y’all gonna love this shit. 2/18.”

Last June, he also spoke with Flaunt about what fans could expect from Continuance.

“The records we have to the side in light of us just releasing Covert Coup to streaming, this project I have with him is in the same vein,” he said. “I’d never say it’s part two, because that’d be a lot to try and emulate, the way people hold their project dear to them.”

Currensy added, “It’s nostalgic to the year it came out and what was going on in everybody’s lives. To say I’m dropping part two to that is big shoes to fill. My plan really is to create something equally impactful, but a completely different animal.”

The Alchemist has a spot on the 15-date ÑBA Leather World Tour with Earl SweatshirtAction Bronson and Boldy James, which ends March 3rd in Tempe, Arizona.
