Stream Roc Marciano & The Alchemist’s ‘The Elephant Man’s Bones’

Roc Marciano and The Alchemist have joined forces for The Elephant Man’s Bones, which features Action Bronson, Boldy James, Ice-T, and more.

Roc Marciano and The Alchemist are back with the heat. The duo has officially released their first collaborative album The Elephant Man’s Bones, on DSPs. This comes a week after the duo made the album available for purchase only. (You can still cop the album for $40.)

While the two have worked with each other over the years, the two have never done an entire project together. (Roc Marciano usually produces his own albums.)

The album features appearances from Action Bronson, Boldy James, Knowledge the Pirate, Ice-T, and more. With the album the duo also released a video — which is directed by Jason Goldwatch. They also dropped a bunch of merch.

 

 

In January, The Alchemist spoke with Complex about his jam-packed album schedule, including new music from Earl Sweatshirt and Larry June, also referencing his album with Marciano. In February, Alchemist and Curren$y released their latest collaborative album Continuance.

“First, I called Roc Marci, and I told him, ‘There’s nobody I’d rather do a whole album with than you after this,’” he said. “And we started work on a record that’s coming soon.”

Marciano last got the stamp of approval from Method Man who called the Blame Kansas rapper a ‘genius’ while stopping by podcast My Expert Opinion.

“You wanna talk about underrated and all that shit,” Meth said. “No, no, no, I’m not underrated. I’ve made my bones and there’s people out there… Roc Marciano under fuckin’ rated. Like a muthafucka, man. It be niggas like that that I wanna see hit big and be like you know running the fucking culture. You know, follow that shit, and he from Hempstead.”

“S/O the legend @methodmanofficial,” Roc wrote in an Instagram post. “I couldn’t agree more….. and I’m from Pimpstead.”
