The esteemed producer took to Twitter to answer some fans’ questions as he gets ready to drop his joint album The Great Escape with Larry June on March 31.
One eager fan inquired to see if Al had linked up with the Cactus Jack leader yet, and while the Alfredo producer didn’t say yes, he didn’t say no either. The Alchemist merely replied with a zipper emoji, implying that for right now if they do have something cooking, it’s gonna remain a secret.

Larry June and the Grammy-nominated producer have been teasing their joint project for a while, but finally announced earlier this month that it will arrive on March 31. Both June and The Alchemist worked together on “Breakfast In Monaco” from The Bay Area rapper’s last project Spaceships On The Blade.
As for Al specifically, he previously released joint projects with both Roc Marciano and Curren$y in the past year. Then on March 10, Hit-Boy and ALC also teamed up for “Slipping Into Darkness,” which finds the duo rapping over each other’s hard-hitting production.
The THIRDEYERAZ-directed clip showcases the duo crafting some beats while chilling in a clothing boutique store.
The clip also happens to be the full version of a teaser shared earlier this week that saw Hit-Boy take a few jabs at several notable producers including Metro Boomin, Southside, Hitmaka, Mustard and others.
“I don’t really know dude, he seem like a cool cat/ But I never once heard Metro Boomin do boom bap/ I never heard a Southside beat without an 808 in it/ HB in drunk-driver mode, I swerve in every lane with it,” he raps.
“I fuck with Mustard, he can make that ratchet shit with his eyes closed/ But now I’m starting to wonder can that n-gga chop soul?”
As for Trav, he’s been hard at work on his forthcoming album Utopia, which he reportedly told Kevin Durant is going to be “fucking insane.”
According to KD, who spoke about the tape on his podcast The ETCs with Kevin Durant, he hasn’t personally heard the project, but La Flame has reassured him it might be some of the best work of his career.
“I didn’t hear it, and I want to ask for some songs, but I know for a fact he won’t send them, so I might have to catch him in the studio one of these days before it comes out, but he’s telling me that it’s fucking insane,” Durant said.
