“Making beats with you watching is one of the least comfortable things I’ve ever done.”
PLAYLIST: The Round-Up: Best Songs of The Week ft. Knxwledge, Little Dragon, Megan Thee Stallion and More
Fueled almost exclusively by Yerba Mates and kush, the trio gets to work in a hurried haze with Kenny cutting up a sample presumably provided by Al. While the super producers geek-out over Ableton plugins (beatmakers, take note) and jab at recent sessions with Teejayx6, Boldy assembles his lines and takes to the booth, billowing over warbled keys and crisp, slightly-swung drums.
The session arrives on the heels of Boldy and Al’s collaborative album, The Price of Tea in China, which featured appearances from Freddie Gibbs, Vince Staples, Benny The Butcher, and more. And if that wasn’t enough, Boldy recently announced a deal with Buffalo’s Griselda Records crew, joining a buzzing collective mid-streak following an uneventful tenure at Mass Appeal.
Watch Kenny Beats, Alchemist, and Boldy James make a heater on the latest episode of The Cave below.
