The duo of Killer Mike and El-P may have just released their second project as Run The Jewels, the self-titled Run The Jewels 2, but they're already set their sights on a third instalment, something fans of the duo definitely won't take issue with.
Run The Jewels are earning critical-acclaim from just about every major publication for their new Run The Jewels 2 LP, but the biggest story to come from their fan appreciation night came from an entirely different hip-hop act: Nas.
After giving away RTJ2 for free (but you can still support them on iTunes here), Run The Jewels are prepared to take their second album on the road for a slew of tour dates, where they'll be joined by special guest RatKing.
When the tracklist for Run The Jewels' just-released album Run The Jewels 2 surfaced earlier this year, it came as somewhat of a shock when we learned that there was no "Pt. 2" to the already-released "Blockbuster Night Pt. 1" on the standard edition.
Run The Jewels, which consists of Killer Mike and El-P, were originally supposed to release their sophomore album, Run The Jewels 2, on October 27th via Mass Appeal Records, but had a little change in plans.
As far as song titles go, Run The Jewels may have just dropped the best of the year thus far. The amazingly-titled "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)" also features erstwhile Rage Against The Machine frontman Zach De La Rocha, and it's taken from RTJ's upcoming second album.
A week and half ago Killer Mike and El-P, known together as Run The Jewels, announced a release date for their sophomore self-titled effort Run The Jewels 2, as well as the news that they had signed to Mass Appeal's new imprint.
