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.
As per usual, the duo of Killer Mike and El-P wow with their formula of short, alternating verses chock full of irreverent lyricism, and the latter provides a gritty beat to boot. But the track's best moment comes from its guest, who spits a closing verse that really makes us wonder why he hasn't been out here lashing out at right wingers since Rage broke up. Dude could really stand alone as an MC.
It's De La on the cut

You can sip my Bitch's Brew
