Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist Drop Surprise Album ‘Alfredo’

,

Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist have unveiled their surprise Alfredo album. The seasoned Hip Hop duo made the announcement on May 28 and followed up with the 10-track project a mere hours later.

Comprised of 10 songs, the delectable effort features special guests in Tyler, the Creator (“Something to Rap), Rick Ross (“Scottie Beam”), Conway the Machine (“Babies & Fools)”, and Benny the Butcher (“Frank Lucas”). It marks the second joint release from Gibbs and The Alchemist following their 2018 mixtape Fetti.

The pair initially teased Alfredo with “1985”, a soulful single peppered with curling guitars. On the track, the Indiana rapper name-dropped both Michael Jordan and Joe Pesci. Meanwhile, its corresponding Nick Walker-directed video closed out with footage of an American flag engulfed in flames — a rather coincidentally apt image given the recent news out of Minneapolis.
