The Alchemist Speaks On "Russian Roulette," Upcoming Projects

The Alchemist touches on projects with Boldy James, Freddie Gibbs, Evidence, Curren$y and more.

The Alchemist has been keeping busy, working on a handful of projects with an assortment of friends. During an interview with HipHopSite.com, Al revealed that his new offering Russian Roulette, which features samples from only Russian songs, will arrive on June 26th and that he’s unsure if it will be an album or a mixtape.

“I’m still trying to figure out what it is. It’s audio, it’s a length of time, it can be heard, probably it’ll be seen, too. It’s pretty dope, it’s different than anything I’ve done, at least,” he said.

While he said that “nobody” will appear on the project, he listed off a handful of artist who came to the studio for Russian Roulette. “Nobody, man. I did have some people, they came in to make sure that it was official. I had a couple of friends who came through to make sure I wasn’t losing my mind,” he said. “Danny Brown came through, he was buggin’. Action Bronson came through. Couple other friends, Willie The Kid, Doo-Rag Dynasty, a lot of friends. … A.G. The Coroner, Evidence, Fashawn came through, ScHoolboy Q definitely thought I was buggin’. He’s also bugged out.”

Al also confirmed that a Step Brothers album with Evidence is in the works, and that it most likely will arrive by the end of the year. He denied that Re-Conversionalize is in the works with Curren$y, but that a follow up to Covert Coup could happen at any moment.

Finally, he said that he’s working with Planet Asia, Killa Ben and Tri State on the Doo-Rag Dynasty project, and that he never got the chance to work with Freddie Gibbs on a rumored full-length. He explains that he’s “almost done” with an album with Boldy James, and that “it’s a stupid great album.”

    That sounds sick. I have an album called Russian Roulette which was a series of story songs about a female soldier in the Russian Mafia. But you know I'm too underground to be mad, he won't be hearing no trademark or lawsuits from me.

    ALC was at one point one of the best producers but past couple of years HE FELL THE FCUK OFF!!!!! SAME WITH THAT NIGGA PRODIGY saigon should shank him

    Hopefully the Russian Roulette project breaks him out the funk he's in, dude is overdosing with the production and putting out too much shit that all sounds the same And Oh No Washed him on both Gangrene albums, really bad on the last one, outside of "Dump Truck" I fast forward the other 4 ALC joints on that I remember when Game dropped his "400 Bars" joint a few years back and ALC sarcastically tweeted "Less is more, Yawn" to him ALC should start practicing what he preaches because seeing his name on every album with another beat that sounds like the last 500 he made is starting to make me drowsy

    All I want to hear is that ALC song that got played in the background on that Rick Ross ALC studio session. The one that was like an American Mafia movie theme song or somthin. bottom line is Alan is one of the greatest hip hop producers ever. He's top 10 in my opinion just so much heat and a very dark distinctive sound

    ALC wassup nice stuff you got going on.

  • dockevoc

    1st Infantry was classic...why does Al now waste beats on no name losers? Pretty frustrating to me. I'd love to see him executive produce a L.O.X. album, not another fucking horrible Planet Asia album...
