In the constantly changing music industry, it’s become quite usual for artists to work together. This year, enthusiasts of underground rap enjoyed an exceptional alliance between rapper Earl Sweatshirt and producer The Alchemist. The pair joined forces to develop a new project named VOIR DIRE. While this wasn’t their initial collaboration – Earl had earlier featured on The Alchemist’s Flying High EP – the news of this venture was greeted with immense enthusiasm from their followers.
However, the release of VOIR DIRE was not without its controversies. The album was initially dropped exclusively on Gala, an NFT-based music streaming platform. This decision was met with backlash from fans who were unwilling to create an account on a crypto music website just to listen to the album.
In response to the fans’ outcry, Earl Sweatshirt and The Alchemist reassured their audience that the album would eventually be made available on other streaming platforms. Furthermore, they promised that the album would feature new tracks when it did finally hit streaming. The new songs brought the album’s total to 11 tracks, with a running time of just under half an hour. The album also features two appearances from Vince Staples and another from MIKE.
Currently, Earl and The Alchemist have embarked on a tour to promote VOIR DIRE, with a lineup of 11 concerts nationwide, featuring MIKE and Black Noi$e. This follows Earl Sweatshirt’s series of solo performances throughout the year, one of which was a notable August concert where he hinted at a possible Frank Ocean appearance that, unfortunately, did not materialize.
The full version of VOIR DIRE is now available on streaming platforms. Fans are encouraged to share their thoughts on the album in the comment section.
The tracklist for VOIR DIRE is as follows:
1. 100 High Street
2. Vin Skully
3. Sentry (feat. MIKE)
4. Heat Check
5. Mancala (feat. Vince Staples)
6. 27 Braids
7. Mac Deuce
8. Sirius Blac
9. Dead Zone
10. The Caliphate (feat. Vince Staples)
11. Free The Ruler
In conclusion, the collaboration between Earl Sweatshirt and The Alchemist has proven to be a unique blend of talent and creativity. Despite initial controversies surrounding its release, VOIR DIRE is now available for all fans to enjoy.
