The Food Villain arrives on October 25th.
Extending a year-long streak of supporting some of 2020’s biggest rap releases, Alchemist is teasing yet another new project. And it’s slated to drop in just a few weeks.
Over the last few days, the producer has been previewing something called The Food Villain on Instagram, offering little to no details about the project. He did, however, glimpse a coloring book component to The Food Villain, illustrated by E$, whose Instagram page has a few hints and a strange backstory for the collaboration.
“[Alchemist] has been forcibly removed from 8 Michelin 3-Star restaurants. One time he beat up Wolfgang Puck in a dice game. Julia Childs thought he had a tasteless palate but found him to be a generous lover. After bearing witness to his disdain for fine dining and overall merriment, TV god and chef extraordinaire [Chris Grosso] dubbed Al, ‘The Food Villain.’ Al hit me up and said he wanted to do something with this idea,” the illustrator wrote in a post earlier this week.
So it’s still unclear whether the producer’s dropping a tape with a coloring book or vice versa. But whatever it is, The Food Villain is set to arrive on October 25th, putting another one on the belt after releasing the experimental beat tape, A Doctor, A Painter, & an Alchemist Walk Into a Bar, just a few weeks back.
Watch the teasers and assemble the clues for the next Alchemist project below. Keep an eye on his Instagram for updates in the days ahead.
