Boldy James and The Alchemist have officially announced their upcoming collaborative album, Bo Jackson.

The pair’s second partnership, Bo Jackson is set to drop on August 13 and follows their 2020 record The Price of Tea in China. James and Alc celebrated the announcement with the release of the lead single, “First 48 Freestyle,” accompanied by a visual that sees the rapper enjoying the skyline from his home.

“I met [The Alchemist] at South by Southwest through Chuck. I flew out to L.A. to work on My 1st Chemistry Set maybe some six months after I first met him,” James explained in a previous interview with HYPEBEAST. “He just wanted to see what the chemistry was between me and him on the production side and then he found out what I was capable of. On Price of Tea we took more time and made sure to slow cook the brick up.”
