If you don’t know yet, producer The Alchemist is curating numerous singles under his belt, entitled, “Craft Singles.” The body of work is described as a release of individual songs on limited edition 45 vinyls, with each song having 500 copies pressed up. For his latest drop, the genius behind the boards taps MC Eiht and Spice 1 to spit game over a bass-driven lustrous instrumental. Take a listen above.
The Alchemist explained the purpose of the importance of vinlys via Hot 97:
“[Vinyls] take forever to make, they’re always backed up at the plants for whatever reason it takes like two months to make. CDs are going away but vinyls are on the way back. It has a value, it’s something you can hold and save. I’m just doing joints that I have on the side. I did a joint with Mac Miller and Migos and I’m throwing that out. I got [Spice 1 and MC Eiht] in the studio and said let’s do two songs…It’s really just loose joints, 500 pieces each. If you get ’em, you get ’em. If not, they’re on SoundCloud for free…We have a “Fuck, That’s Delicious” special thing that we’ll probably release on vinyl as well.”
