Earlier this week, Action Bronson and The Alchemist finally dropped their long-awaited collaborative project Rare Chandeliers. Now, in a recent interview with Complex, the Queens emcee recalls working with the veteran Cali producer on the mixtape.
Broson said that he had to drastically adjust his schedule in order to work with Alc on the project, even if that meant he was recording at all hours of the night. He added that the two crafted nearly 40 songs for the mixtape, but didn’t stop creating music until they felt they had a complete project.
“The thing is, when you record with Al at his house, you gotta live on his schedule, or else you’ll never get any work done. [His schedule is] stay up ‘til you pass out, wake up whenever, eat whenever, and at any time, anything could be done. We [recorded around the clock]. “We [had enough songs that we] could have put out an album a2fter three days. But we just continued on, and kept going at it and working and working and working. We almost did forty songs. When you get in a zone, you can’t really stop. You don’t say, ‘We’re gonna stop at ten,’ or, ‘We’re gonna stop at fifteen.’ You keep creating and creating and you pick the best out of the lot. “At the end of the day, I’m just a fucking one of a kind, and so is Al.”
