This Thing of Ours is neither revelatory nor is it disposable. It showcases all talent featured, the charisma of each involved coming together as something if not vital then certainly enjoyable.

While I do like this quite a bit, it’s just too short to really have a big impression or impact on me. I would be interested in a fully fleshed out project in this lane though.

This Thing Of Ours has some glimpses of greatness and some highlights, but it doesn’t feel fully explored. The Alchemist’s production is the highlight on here for me, as I think the minimalist and almost drum-less production gives this a really cool vibe.

Too short, although despite that runtime The Alchemist manages to craft a chill and decent effort, I hope this is only a taste of what's to come because I'd love to see a full-fledged project with the likes of these rappers and even some more, much potential for it to be simply left behind as an EP.
"This Thing Of Ours" is a calming EP from hip-hop producer, The Alchemist. The vibe of this album is old and grainy with its extremely nostalgic sound and the more lyrical approach to the rap content on here. It's a short project with impressive features from artists like Earl Sweatshirt, Navy Blue, Pink Siifu, Boldy James, Sideshow, and Maxo.

Short, chillin, vibes. Production is cool but no one really doing their best on vocals. Not bad but just kinda not crazy.
POV: it's been a few weeks since Haram and you're suddenly craving the sound of a libertarian trying to break down why you can't trust the media or the government, but you *can* trust your favorite rappers. An EP full of nice stuff but nothing fuck-you-in-the-ears good. My favorite track is Holy Hell, I love how dreamy the beat is.
