Exactly two years to the day of the release of their rap masterpiece Run the Jewels 2, Killer Mike and El-P are back with an absolute banger. Listen to “Talk To Me,” the first single off the duo’s upcoming album entitled Run the Jewels 3.
If that song doesn’t make you want to run through a goddamn brick wall, then I don’t know what to tell you. There’s not another group on the planet right now with a better blend of lyrical aerobatics, dope beats, and political statements.
Run the Jewels 3 is currently scheduled to be released at some point in 2016. Rap album release dates are notoriously fickle, so we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed that we’ll get RTJ3 within the next couple of months.
To hold us over until then, I highly recommend listening to “Talk To Me,” “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” and “Close Your Eyes (And Count to F*ck)” at irresponsibly loud levels.
