Earl Sweatshirt, the popular American rapper, and Alchemist have unveiled their long-awaited collaborative album, “Voir Dire.” This album is not just a traditional release but an exclusive digital collectible in the form of a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) available solely on the Gala Music blockchain platform.
The excitement within the rap community all started in 2019 when Alchemist hinted at a collaborative project with Earl Sweatshirt. The album was thought to be lost in the shadows, a legend, or perhaps a myth. Now, however, the album has emerged to make its grand debut.

“Voir Dire” by Earl Sweatshirt and Alchemis Available on Gala Music
The decision to release “Voir Dire“ as an on-chain digital collectible on Gala Music is a step that underscores the artists’ involvement in the non-fungible token (NFT) space. Earl Sweatshirt and Alchemist, both respected figures with substantial fan bases, are pioneers in embracing the potential of Web3 technology for their creative expression.
While the album itself is available for digital ownership, there’s an element of gamification that enhances the interaction. Gala Music introduces engaging add-ons, ranging from exclusive 1:1 FaceTimes with the artists to coveted spots on the guest list for the album release party.
Each track also comes with a specially designed physical artwork poster, which was also emphasized by Rob Abelow, who called the artwork “no normal album” on X.

A Fusion of Art and Blockchain
The choice to release “Voir Dire” exclusively on the blockchain speaks to the artists’ willingness to merge artistic creativity with cutting-edge technology. Gala Music’s blockchain platform not only ensures the security and uniqueness of the album but also offers fans a chance to be part of a unique music consumption experience.
The album serves as a bridge between music and technology, between artists and their fans. As blockchain continues to reshape the landscape of creativity, Voir Dire is a shining example of what the future of music could hold, as it stands as a testament to the transformative power of blockchain in the music industry.
Interestingly, the album release aligns with Earl Sweatshirt’s celebration of the 10th anniversary of his debut album, “Doris.” This coincidence adds a layer of significance to “Voir Dire,” making it not just a musical creation but a commemoration of the artist’s journey and evolution over the years.
