In preparation for their upcoming collaborative album The Good Book Vol. 2, The Alchemist and Budgie have released the first single entitled “Brother Jedidiah.” The track has a instant church atmosphere that the featured emcees Action Bronson and Big Body Bes are highly aware of. It’s a short and sweet song that perfectly revisits the religious materials of the first volume of The Good Book. This is undoubtedly a great sample of what sorts of vibes the full album will contain. As a stray observation, it was wise to release a single with Action Bronson and Big Body Bes as they have some big preacher voices.
The Good Book Vol. 2 is scheduled to drop from the heavens on July 21st. According to The Alchemist’s SoundCloud page for “Brother Jedidiah,” other known features on the project include “Mobb Deep, Royce 5′ 9, Westside Gunn & Conway, Action Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, Your Old Droog, Evidence, Remy Banks, and more.” The entirely religious substances of the The Good Book albums are an interesting concept, and an enjoyable one too.
