Today (Dec. 29), Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine and The Alchemist unveiled the original version of their sequel to 2016’s Hall & Nash. As explained in a recent Instagram post announcing the release, the project was meant to see the light of day some time ago before effectively being scrapped.

“When I first linked with [Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine], the original plan was to do a Hall & Nash 2 tape. From the first day in the lab, I knew I needed these guys on my beats more than they needed my beats,” the veteran producer explained. “The s**t was coming out crazy. They linked with [ScHoolboy Q] one day at my spot and made one, [and] we knew we had something good.”

The Alchemist continued, “While we were finishing the project, they signed their deal with Shady. We ended up changing the plan to drop [Hall & Nash 2] and, over time, used some of the songs for different things, but a handful of songs never came out and the original version of the album was never released. Now, for the first time, the OG version of Hall & Nash 2 will be released on vinyl, CD and tape. [A] collectors’ item for the day ones.”

The Griselda and ALC Records collaboration boasts nine songs, matching that of its predecessor. The aforementioned collaboration with Q, titled “Fork In The Pot,” contains one of the Top Dawg emcee’s best verses to date.

“Where the dope at? I sold it all/ Diamond chain full of Armor All/ Drive McLaren down the Autobahn/ N**ga, bet your girl wanna tag along/ Dose of this and go to Babylon/ Summertime in Cali, serve an avalanche/ I’m a whale to a fish, n**ga, serve well to a brick, uh/ Your aunties and uncles, they know me, n**ga…”
