Boldy James has tapped The Cool Kids and their affiliate Shorty K for a new The Alchemist-produced cut dubbed “Pots and Pans.” A bonus track from the forthcoming deluxe edition of James’ and Alchemist’s well-received The Price of Tea In China — which is set to drop July 10 — the song sees James, Sir Michael Rocks, Chuck Inglish and Shorty K trade unfazed, braggadocios bars atop The Alchemist’s claustrophobic, disconcerting beat.

Highlights include James rapping about his crisp Air Force 1s, stating “‘Fore the [Saint] Lunatics dropped a song about them [Air] Force 1s, I was rocking Unos, fresh up out the youth homes/Charged me as an adult, since then I been too grown,” and Chuck Inglish spitting pool hall-ready raps like “you can have the stripes, I’ll keep it solid like a 2 ball/the corner and the pockets is how I aim and shoot/line this pool stick up and make sure I follow through.”

Familial ties run deep between the track’s participants. Boldy James and Chuck Inglish are biological cousins, and James appeared on a handful of tracks off Layups, The Cool Kids’ own Alchemist-produced EP from 2019.
