Last month, Mach-Hommy, the enigmatic Newark rapper, teamed up with producer Knxwledge for the collaborative EP The Spook… Mach-Hommy’s already followed it up, but this time, it’ll cost you to hear it. Over the weekend, he released a new album called Dump Gawd: Hommy Edition. Earl Sweatshirt, who’s long been vocal about his admiration for Hommy, produced three tracks on the album, and it’s also got production from Alchemist and Dr. Yen Lo’s Preservation. Your Old Droog makes an appearance. But even though Hommy is selling the album on Bandcamp, he’s not streaming it. And it comes with a hefty price tag. To buy the digital version, Hommy is asking for a hefty $77.77.
This isn’t the first time Hommy has pulled something like this. Last year, he released his HBO (Haitian Body Odor) album, which cost $300, and which you had to buy by sending an Instagram DM directly to Hommy. Compared to that, this is a bargain! I’ve heard Dump Gawd: Hommy Edition, and while I can’t confirm that it’s worth that much money, I can say that it’s very fucking good.
