Though Alchemist can look back on a long, storied, and versatile career, the prolific producer has always felt at home dropping gritty street music. It's no wonder he managed to find a couple of kindred spirits in Westside Gunn and Conway, two modern-day purveyors of the rugged and raw sound. Now, on the day of his forty-first birthday, Uncle Alc has come through with a joint effort from the Griselda brothers and none other than ScHoolboy Q.
Taking to an eighties inspired, drug-cartel fever dream, Westside Gunn handles the chorus while Conway and Q spit a verse apiece. The latter is a particularly welcome presence, given his relative absence from all things 2018. "Summertime in Cali serving avalanche," raps Q, "I'm a whale to a fish, n***a, serve quail to a brick." Peep the single now, which features surreal visual accompaniment from Jason Goldwatch.
"Fork In The Pot" is part of an upcoming 12", which finds it joined by previously released "94' Ghost Shit." Check that one out, if you missed it; Conway absolutely bodies his verse. Happy birthday, Alchemist!
Summertime in Cali serving avalanche,
I'm a whale to a fish, n***a, serve quail to a brick
Your aunties and uncles they know me n***a
Slangin them patties, the buns full of cavvy
