A couple of years ago, The Alchemist had revealed that he had recorded a full EP with Vince Staples.
It looks like that entire project has landed online. “Vince is full of shit. I’ve have a finished [a] 6 song EP with JUST HIM for over 3 months!! MIXED! Plus mad songs with him and Thebe,” he said at the time on Twitter. But we didn’t receive any updates on the project after that.

In a preview interview with Apple Music, Vince Staples told Ebro that Alchemist contacted him about making a project. “Alchemist had hit me, he was like, ‘I want this project. Me, you and Earl. I only need three weeks,’” said Vince. “I’m like, ‘Alright, I’ll do it.’ So we go over there, and they get high. So I’m the only one over there rapping and I don’t smoke, so it didn’t really blend. I was getting headaches. So next thing I know I got 30 verses on 30 beats … I thought we was collaborating. Whatever, boom. I got 10 songs, I’m like, ‘Alright man, we finna put these songs out.’ Alchemist moves at a very cryptic pace, you know, he’s hella slow.”
The project that has leaked online on Tuesday has 6 original, unheard songs on it while the 7th one sounds bit unfinished. Of course we will not be linking it here but we wonder if this will be released officially anytime soon. Stay tuned for updates.
