Action Bronson & Alchemist Announce A Collaborative EP Arriving This Month
Today, (November 10), Alchemist and Action Bronson announced that they are teaming up for a seven-song project entitled Lamb Over Rice. The EP is set to drop on November 22, and as Alchemist added, is “out the stashbox,” which suggests they could be a collection of songs the duo has been sitting on for some time. Together, Alchemist and Action Bronson have been cooking for years, in music, shows, and television. So it would come as no surprise that the duo has a ton of unreleased music in the chamber.
Coinciding with the release of the new EP will also be a collectors edition vinyl release of the first full-length project Al and Action Bronson did together, Rare Chandeliers. The 2012 mixtape was a hallmark in Bam Bam’s early discography, and has only been available digitally until now. According to The Alchemist’s tweet, there will only be 1,000 pieces of this limited-edition double vinyl, making it as rare as the title. The release will come with three different colorways, six theater cards, a sticker pack, and a download card. The project featured Sean Price, ScHoolboy Q, Styles P, Roc Marciano, and others.

Al and Action have proven themselves a captivating duo whenever they’ve teamed up over the years. Alchemist recently dropped his Yacht Rock 2 album, which features a guest appearance by Bronson on the song “Tropical Storm Lenny.” He has spent much of 2019 putting in work for other artists behind the boards, most notably providing much of the sound behind the Griselda movement. Alongside Daringer, he has supplied beats for each of Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, and Benny The Butcher’s recent releases. On Friday, he released a two-pack Step Brothers project, Burnt Tree. Last month, he and Evidence dropped a video for the title track.
Action Bronson, on the other hand, has remained relatively quiet on the music front in 2019, save for a handful of guest features. Having spent time as a TV personality on Viceland, Bronson took his acting career a step further in 2019, making his Hollywood acting debut in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, which stars the iconic lineup of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. Lamb Over Rice is set to be his first musical release since late 2018’s White Bronco.
